Comments: The best of the bunch by far. Because Cate Blanchett. We don't get to watch this movie as much as watch her chew it up and spit it out at us. Excellent. It's the story of the Dan Rather case that got him fired. Robert Redford plays Dan. Why haven't you heard of this film?

Summary: The story of The Killian Documents controversy (a.k.a. "Rathergate") in the days leading up to the 2004 presidential election. When veteran newscaster Dan Rather and CBS News head Mary Mapes choose to air a segment on 60 Minutes exposing how President Bush avoided being drafted to Vietnam through his father's political advantages, the resulting fallout ultimately costs them their jobs and reputations.
