Town and Country Magazine:  The New Documentary About Ben Bradlee Is the Movie You Have to See Before The Post

Later this month, the story of the Washington Post and its role in the historic release of the Pentagon Papers will hit the big screen in The Post. But before everyone’s parents buy tickets to Steven Spielberg’s movie about this watershed moment for freedom of the press and the First Amendment, another film about the key players in that story—not to mention Watergate, the Kennedy presidency, the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, and more—will hit the small screen.

The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee, which premieres December 4 on HBO, tells the story of the late, now-legendary editor of the Washington Post, from his days as a confidant of John and Jackie Kennedy to his time as a thorn in the side of Nixon’s presidency.
