Following Daniel Ellsberg’s leak of the Pentagon Papers, The Washington Post Publisher Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) and Editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) must decide how far to go to protect the freedom of the press.
A panel discussion with Denver’s premier online journalists including Ashley Dean, Assistant Editor of Denverite, Susan Greene, Editor of The Colorado Independent, and Dana Coffield, Senior Editor of The Colorado Sun will follow the film. Westword Co-founder and Editor Patricia Calhoun will moderate the discussion.
