Corrected entry: Hot metal typesetting is used to print the Pentagon Papers story in 1971. That process had been obsolete for at least 5 years, probably longer at the Post.

Correction: Hot Metal printing was used at the Washington Post until 1973. It was part of a labor negotiation.

Factual error: The opening caption stating the year as 1966 and Creedence Clearwater Revival's Green River is playing. The group was not formed until 1969 and Green River was released in August 1969. (01:00:00)
