The new film “The Post,” with Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, puts the Pentagon Papers back on the front page. The massive leak of government documents helped shed light on the Vietnam War, and the lies the government was telling about it.

Among others, we’re talking to Leslie Gelb, a former Department of Defense official who will tell us exactly how leaker Daniel Ellsberg got away with the documents.

We’re digging in and consider its impact on journalism, now.

Lois Beckett, a reporter for The Guardian, says the bill doesn’t have much of a chance of passing the U.S. Senate, even though it passed the House of Representatives. Still, she says, it’s been a National Rifle Association priority.
