Original tape date: October 8, 2015.
First aired: October 23, 2015.
Academy Award®–winning actress and producer Cate Blanchett and Academy Award–winning actor, director and producer Robert Redford discuss their new film “Truth.” This powerful, real–life story of the newsroom drama spotlighted Dan Rather and his CBS 60 Minutes II producer Mary Mapes, putting both at the epicenter of a journalistic storm. Dan Rather and Mary Mapes will join the discussion. Written and directed by James Vanderbilt and based on Mapes’s book “Truth and Duty,” the film goes behind the scenes of the 2004 CBS 60 Minutes investigation of then–President George W. Bush’s military service in the Texas Air National Guard. Interviewed by New York Times Magazine staff writer Susan Dominus.
