    Default 'The Post': new movie on the release of the Pentagon Papers links to Trump

    Looking forward to "The Post" after seeing the trailer for this film which will be released Jan. 12. The film is about the competition between the Washington Post and the New York Times on the release of the Pentagon Papers back in the '70s.

    The parallels between then and now are significant. Nixon, like Trump, criticized the media during their terms in office. The Post's Carl Bernstein says however that Trump's attacks are far more treacherous. Not surprisingly, they have been criticized across the board, even by Fox News which has usually fawned over him. The film's cast includes Meryl Streep as Katherine Graham and Tom Hanks as Ben Bradlee. The film, which is directed by Steven Spielberg, has gotten great advance reviews. Can't wait for it.

    Yes.. There was a whistle blower during the Obama admin too. But the competition between those two papers was to cover it up.

    What was in the P papers was what happened before Nixon.

    Hanks last movie was in praise of the mass murdering communist and disrespected our military.

    I'm sure this is another pro-commie movie too.

    Linking Daniel Ellsberg to Trump?
    That's a damn good trick.
    Let's try linking Obama to Benedict Arnold or Biden to Aaron Burr.

    I needed a little laugh. Thanks, Cratic.

    Good grief. Try it and see how far you get. Not very far.

    What the world has been waiting for. A movie geared to old liberals.

    As unlikely as it would be, I'd love to see a movie update of "The West Wing." Now there's a liberal movie worth waiting for.

    Looks like a good movie. For recent newspaper pics, it'll have to do a lot to be better that Spotlight, imo.
