FROM THIS EPISODE

At a moment in American history when our free press is under siege, Steven Spielberg’s film recounts the transformation of the Washington Post in 1971 from a local paper into a national institution that exposed government lies about the Vietnam war. It’s a story of fearless journalism with a feminist dimension that’s told through Meryl Streep’s Katharine Graham; she became the owner and publisher of the Post, and Newsweek magazine, after her publisher husband, Phil Graham, committed suicide.
