    Would not even rate this movie. Meryl Streep trashes our president the first chance she gets. She's a discrace to our country. It's to bad because I like Tom Hanks. Would not support a movie with her in it.

    I plan to see the movie soon (I had to rate the movie to submit my comment here). I worked in the newsroom (now called "information center") at the D&C. Watch "The Paper" directed by Ron Howard -- available from the library or Netflix. To me, it's a pretty good look at a newsroom in action.

    The unofficial 4th branch of government both in the US and Canada is the media and the media once upon a time was suppose to be non profit, non partisan, and a checks and balances on gov't. Now media entities are either owned and controlled by gov't (CBC) or controlled by public controlled / traded stocks. Anybody that actually believes that the media reports stories without an ulterior motive or political partisan bias is gravely mistaken!!! EX: CBC - liberal gov't propaganda

    Great portrayal of an important part of US history. Our current President should watch it and note that, per the Supreme Court, the press is here to serve the governed, not the governors.

    So far, not many viewers have commented on this movie. I wonder if this is because for the way the movie presents itself it seems one has to know something about the times (e.g. 1963 - 1974). And one has to know some things about Ms. Kay Graham's background (some things about the woman, the person). The night that I was in the theater to watch this movie much of the crowd was an older crowd. They seemed to get what the movie was showing. This movie is about Ms. Graham being thrusted into a role that is a powerful role especially for a woman of the times when (1) she initially lacked self confidence in herself in that role, (2) at a time also when women did not hold powerful positions over a company and/or over men, and on top of that (3) it was a newspaper an organization that could be used (cultivated) to achieve political ends by the power players (the powerful men) of the times. Keeping in mind, newspaper reports could and did play a role in public perception of the Vietnam war. Even bigger, then came the Pentagon Papers, and Watergate which culminated with the Supreme Court decision that Freedom of the Press (and in regards to public figures) is a protection guaranteed under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The movie does not come out and say but correctly eludes to the rise in Ms. Graham's confidence growing with the rise of the gender equality movement, thus the scenes of women standing in support of Ms. Graham outside the Court after the Supreme Court decision at the end. I really liked the newspaper back office scenes depicting what it took to get a paper to press, off the press, and delivered to the public. This is a really good movie.
