Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett star in "Truth", based on a riveting true story of one of network news' biggest scandals. As a renowned producer and close associate of Dan Rather (Redford), Mary Mapes (Blanchett) believes she's broken the biggest story of the 2004 election: revelations of a sifting U.S. President's military service. But when allegations come pouring in, sources change their stories, document authenticity is questioned and the casualties begin to mount. This dramatic thriller goes behind the scenes to expose the intricacies of journalistic integrity and what it takes to reveal the Truth.
Excellent drama about journalism and honesty

This is a must-see movie - especially for anyone who's involved in the media or journalism in any way. It shows how the powers that be in the USA (and the UK) want to stop criticism of them by the media. The UK govt is at this very money trying to introduce legislation threatening to jail any journalist who reveals their secrets or blows the whistle.
Great script, top acting, an intelligent movie.
All very US-centric but it would be being about the 2004 US election, George Bush and CBS 60 minutes.
