Synopsis

Mary Mapes was one of the most respected producers in American news until 2004, when she was accused, alongside her colleague legendary broadcaster Dan Rather, of manipulating facts to suggest that President George W. Bush misled the public about his prior military service. With an election imminent, Mapes comes under increasing pressure to retract a story she believes to be true. As sources disappear and supposed facts become more spurious, Mapes and Rather find themselves fighting for their careers. This engrossing look at the mechanics of modern journalism interrogates the conflict of interest felt by the major corporations who own the networks, as well as suggesting inherent double-standards and gender bias within the system. However the film also stands out for its portrayal of the value of loyalty, in both the professional and personal sphere.
