Highly Suspect Reviews: The Post


Adding to the pile of December Oscar-bait this year is Steven Spielberg’s entry and he’s going in with guns-a-blazing, casting Meryl Streep as Washington Post owner Kay Graham and Tom Hanks as its editor Ben Bradley in a time of deep concern for the paper: do they ignore the federal government’s threats and publish shocking documents that were illicitly obtained revealing secrets about the Vietnam war? Timely, no? Which isn’t to say we were head over heels with it. Listen to Chris, Elliott, Frank, and JC break it down for you.

  1. My favorite movie about a newspaper is “The Paper” with Michael Keaton and Glenn Close, what does Elliot’s wife think of that one?

  2. Looks like a good movie, but you guys basically had a 3-to-1 ratio on how much you talked about your own political leanings, opinions, and insults against conservatives to actually discussing the movie.

    It’s so strange how you only claim that Republicans were against free speech and the press when Obama cracked down on whistle-blowers and press leaks, with Leonard Downie comparing Obama’s crackdown on the press to Nixon’s administration. I’m fine with the ribbing against conservatives, but damn, guys, you can at least be self-aware on this one.
