Political cartoonist Herb Block also won four Pulitzer Prizes during his 55 years at the Post from 1944 to his death in 2001.

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, comedian Lewis Black and journalists Ted Koppel, David Brooks, Gwen Ifill, Tom Brokaw, Bob Schieffer, Jules Feiffer, and Tom Friedman are featured in the film.

The 95-minute Herblock played at various festivals including this year’s Tribeca.
