Scene 9

  • They find a librarian who provides them with every request from the library in the past year.
  • Time to flip through them all.
  • All that flip-flip-flipping and they find no-no-nothing.
  • Back in the newsroom, they work on their story. Wonder how many ways they can find to say "no comment"?
  • Harry presents the story to Ben Bradlee, the executive editor, who doesn't think it belongs on the front page.
  • Bernstein is angry, but Woodward agrees with Bradlee. The story isn't yet where it should be.
