Plot Outline:

As the 2004 presidential election approached, 60 Minutes, led by CBS news head Mary Mapes and veteran newscaster Dan Rather, aired a segment on presidential hopeful George W. Bush - namely that his father's political ties led to him avoiding the Vietnam draft. When the Killian Documents were proved to be false, it led to a fallout ultimately ending the careers of many, including Mapes and, many have speculated, the retirement of Rather himself. -- Chris Kavan

Enthüllung

Für einen Journalisten Thriller ist Roberd Redford die bestmögliche Besetzung! Hier geht es um die Frage, ob der junge George W. Bush seinen Militärdienst ordentlich ableistete? Das war eines der Themen des Präsidentschaftswahlkampf 2004 als ein Reporter-Team Bush als Drückeberger überführen wollte.

Im Grunde ein Beispiel, wie Journalisten nicht arbeiten sollten. Wie eine Schlange des Boulevard tritt auch Cate Blanchett als Mapes auf. Sie...

Truth - might be better with some fictional stuff.

Truth tries to be a twist on the political thriller formula established by 'All the President's Men' and it's interesting in the first half for it. The twist is that the central conspiracy is a complete fraud and ruins the lives of the reporters and journalists involved.
For the uninformed, it recreates the firestorm of controversy when 60 Minutes aired a critical report on George W. Bush's military service leading up to the 2004 election;unfortunately their report was based off information that was 100% false much to their embarassment. It ruined the lives of veteran reporter Dan Rather (Robert Redford) and his superior Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett).
There's a compelling story to be told through film about that and for the first hour, Truth is going in that direction. Redford and Blanc...
