The Post

The Post reveals the partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee, as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets spanning three decades and four U.S. Presidents. They risk their careers – and their very freedom – to bring long-buried truths to light.
