This movie is depicted from the book and true story of Dan Rather and Mary Mapes investigation of former President George W. Bush military service. Their findings and Dan’s reports of this topic led to the end of his and Marys’ career (yet she is known as one of the best journalists in the 2000’s for another award winning story she published). The cover up and back lash into former President Bush’s military deployment led to several people being forced to resign, Mary being fired (ultimately taking most of the blame) and CBS being embarrassed. A little slow yet interesting. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cate Blanchett gets an Oscar nomination. Robert Redford does a good job as Dan Rather yet he looked like a “very” aged Dan Rather.
