A press-hostile White House, misbehaving public figures and The Washington Post at the center of the national conversation – none of those things is new. HBO's film on the Post editor Ben Bradlee proves otherwise. The HBO project was instigated by Bradlee's son Quinn, who suggested it to HBO.Film director John Maggio found the perfect narrator for most of the film in Bradlee himself.
