On the eve of the 2004 Presidential election, with the USA at war in both Afghanistan and Iraq, news producer Mary Mapes (Blanchett) and her long-time partner, legendary news anchorman Dan Rather (Redford) uncover an incendiary story. A sitting US President may have been AWOL from the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. Hours after the story breaks, its veracity is questioned. The ensuing scandal effectively ruins Dan Rathers career, nearly changes the course of a US Presidential election and almost takes down CBS News in the process. In a world of WikiLeaks, phone tap scandals and cover-ups, this story of corporate media ownership and the unending privilege of power simply couldnt be any more relevant.
