The True Story Behind The Post

2018-02-23 20:32 #0 by: Evelina

"In the early spring 1971, Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) and publisher Katharine Graham (Streep) heard of a groundbreaking story in the works at the New York Times. But it wasn’t until mid-summer that they were first introduced to the Pentagon Papers.

The “Pentagon Papers” was the name given to the top-secret report United States-Vietnam Relations, 1945–1967, which United States military analyst Daniel Ellsberg had secretly photocopied and passed to NYT reporter Neil Sheehan. The Papers, released during the Vietnam War, revealed the deep level of deception on the part of the government throughout the United States’ engagement with Vietnam."

Perhaps you remember this happening? Or, perhaps heard of the Pentagon papers before?
