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: Robert McNamara is wearing a multi colored Polo shirt talking to Mrs. Graham in 1971. The Ralph Lauren Company did not make the shirts until 1972.
