The Washington Post is on the verge of going public in order to save itself from financial collapse.  Kay lost her husband to suicide and became the owner of the newspaper.  Even though her father owned it, due to the times it was passed to her husband.  Now Kay is lost in a sea of men the respect her position but not her opinion.  When they are scooped by the New York times on the Vietnam Study, the editor Ben wants to write the news instead of reading it.   With the help of an informant and 4,000 pages, the Post will get the story they always wanted.  However, when the U.S. government sues the New York Times, the Post’s lawyer ask one question: Is our informant the same that informed the New York Times used.  Kay is put on alert.  If the Post gets sued, the shareholders can stop the presses and end the magazine.  So with everything on the line, Kay and Ben must check their morals and past relationships, the determine if they should go or stop the story.

Not since Spotlight has the news been upheld in high regard as standing up for the governed and not the governors.  To see the gender and political struggle between Kay and Ben were magnificent.  Ben’s only concern was to ensure the Post readers got quality news.  However, during his time with the Kennedys, he has to admit he was compromised by getting to close.   Kay also has the same understanding.  She has made friends with Attorney Generals, Presidents, and Judges with the unspoken agreement not to write bad things about them.  They know that printing the truth could cost them their jobs, her paper, and their freedom.  How many journalists are brave enough to do what they did today?

I give it 5 out of 5 stars

Katherine, keep your finger out of my eye – Ben

I’m going to bed – Kay
