Maybe it's time to 'cast away' Tom Hanks — Fox's Ingraham

Maybe it's time to 'cast away' Tom Hanks — Fox's Ingraham

Speaking to reporters on the red carpet at the Newseum screening, Spielberg, Hanks and Streep - once dismissed by Trump as "overrated" - were reluctant to call out the president by name and downplayed suggestions the movie was a shot across the bow of his White House. But then the Nixon Administration got a judge to bar the Times from publishing the leaked documents, and the Post found its opening: Having procured the Papers themselves, they could publish in the Times' stead - at the risk of Bradlee and Graham landing in prison. They took on the First Amendment by saying: "'You can't tell that story, and if you do, we're going to threaten you.' That is going on, of course, right now".

I'll admit it. I started crying the first time I saw Tom Hanks' Ben Bradlee walk through a bustling newsroom in The Post, and I'm pretty sure that's what Steven Spielberg wanted. And I am happy about a musical number that will delight you.

Trump has been particularly scathing about CNN and The New York Times but he has also repeatedly attacked the Post, calling it "dishonest", "phony" and - his favorite - "fake news".

"This is a tragedy of the utmost effect and it goes much longer beyond who's going to come out on top of the news story". Treason, my friend. That's the stuff that goes on with tin-pot dictators and communist tyrants and third-world banana republics. "We can decide whatever facts that we want, that we would like". "Because I think that there's something that we all should come together as Americans, and want to support our leaders, our elected officials, Republican, Democrat", Spicer scolded. "I think that for people like Tom Hanks, who I think is a great film producer and director - he should take the lead and maybe say, 'you know what?" "Right now, without a doubt, there are people in power trying to - if not quash or stop the right to publication, [then at least] denigrate it to the point [where] they are saying there is no truth to it whatsoever".

"I said: 'Well, look, this is ridiculously timely, and the even better part of it is: this is the story of the week that (Washington Post publisher) Katharine Graham became Katharine Graham". I would not have been able to imagine that we would be living in a country where neo-Nazis are doing torchlight parades in Charlottesville [Va.] and jokes about Pocahontas are being made in front of the Navajo code talkers. "So, I would probably vote not to go", he added. We have to start voting, actually, before the election.
