Manny's Movie Night: The Post

Manny's Movie Night: The Post

American democracy under attack. When our government fails to provide the whole truth, is it our duty to attain it.

"Democracy Dies in Darkness." - The Washington Post

Directed by Steven Spielberg, The Post highlights a pivotal moment in U.S. history during the Nixon presidency when transparency and truth from our government was absent. The power of investigative journalism represents a core value in American democracy, and its continued obstruction is pelirious.

Synopsis:

"A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country's first female newspaper publisher (Meryl Streep) and a hard-driving editor (Tom Hanks) to join an unprecedented battle between the press and the government."

The Trump Administration's continued efforts to undermine governmental transperency is dangerous and alarming. The proliferation of fake news has tarnished the fabric of media transparency, posing a detrimental threat to truth and government accountability.

Watch the trailer for The Post.
