On the morning of September 9, 2004, veteran CBS News producer MARY MAPES (Cate Blanchett) believed she had every reason to feel proud of a broadcast journalism job well done. By the end of the day, Mapes, CBS News, and the venerable CBS News anchor DAN RATHER (Robert Redford) would be under harsh scrutiny.
Told from the perspective of the veteran journalist at the center of the controversy, TRUTH examines how a news report of national importance was fitted together piece by piece in the newsroom, only to be unraveled by a storm of accusation and criticism. TRUTH is based on the memoir Truth and Duty: the Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power by Mary Mapes.
