    Interesting timing here....all of a sudden we have a remake of All The President's Men to coincide with Trump passing major legislation. Of course the media will push it as an instant classic with powerful performances by Streep and Hanks. Well Hollywood, What exactly is the connection between a scandal that occurred 45 years ago and today? The liberal fascination with Watergate apparently provides them with some moral high ground to beat the rest of us into submission if we choose to vote for someone else besides their tax and spend liberal flunkies. Pathetic.

This is a fluff piece which is supposed to put media back in the limelight of positivity instead of what we know media to be. Pure fluff.

    • Anthony Nycholas
      Anthony Nycholas Year ago +1

      Aaannnd I was right. It's a movie based on a true story of the Washington Post putting it all on the line to hold men in power accountable to their actions. Damn, Colbert is right. This movie sounds like it's got good chances on getting in the top three most seen in the box office. I'm DEFINITELY putting this on the wish list next to a Nintendo Switch with Metroid Prime 4

      Boopala 1 Year ago +2

      John Nycto She never mentioned trump. She was talking about being a person who is living a life of doing the right thing. That hate begets hate, etc. For every person who calls themselves a Christian but lies repeatedly and lives a life that is the opposite of his teachings is not a Christian!!
      Look up Mother Theresa. Her life most certainly wasn’t glamorous because it’s not supposed to be. Supporting someone like trump who has a golden toilet, lies repeatedly, rips people off & too many other despicable things that I’m not bothering to list them all, except 1. He admitted to sexual assault, saying; “Just grab ‘em by the pussy”. any person that ever supported that piece of refuse and still does has no right to call themselves a Christian. Not to mention morally and ethically bankrupt!

    "The Post" - Yea! Excited to see this film. To understand who Mrs. Graham is I HIGHLY recommend the book "The Powers That Be" by David Halberstam. Ya see, back in the day the newspapers (New York Times too, sorta) were owned by a family. A dynasty. These people had final say on what was published. Period. Katharine Graham inherited the paper and she was a rather introverted and shy woman. But man, when it came to making the big decisions for that paper, she had balls of steel. Scratch that; she had titanium tits!

    FYI, The Post is currently getting more money than its actual worth from the CIA and is owned by a billionaire corporate tycoon with global interests in open borders, deregulation and no labor proteaction laws. So if something like that were to happen today, do you think they'd print it? Hint: They willingly participated in the rush to the Iraq war, spreading propaganda for the Bush admin. and later minimized Obama's involvement in the middle east, as the "collateral damage" caused by US strikes. They also propagated propaganda to boost support for intervention in Syria. "Democracy dies in darkness" isn't their motto, it's their mission-statement.

    I also loved "All the President's Men" in the recently released 2-disc DVD version, with Redford narrating in the special features and explaining the details of how the film was made.
