This podcast is generally done with an imagined audience of people who have seen the movie, but just to make sure we don’t leave you completely in the dark: Truth is a movie about the 2004 60 Minutes piece that led to Dan Rather stepping down from the CBS Evening News. It focuses more on his producer, Mary Mapes. The movie does a good job of comprehensively showcasing the process for putting together the infamous segment and the fight that followed. Guest co-host Josh Ellis studied journalism at Ole Miss, so he has a nice background in this kind of stuff and made for a great conversation partner. We talked about the many worthy topics in the movie but also about how much the way we take in news has changed and stuff like that.
