Around 58 minutes into the movie, when Mary Mapes searches Google for "CBS Bush Guard", the address bar in the Microsoft Internet Explorer shows "localhost:44500". It means that she was not accessing real Google over the Internet but a server running locally on the computer that displayed web pages stored on the hard disk

Factual Mistake
During the investigation commission, the argument is that the abbreviation, "OETR" did not exist as an official abbreviation and should be OER..Maples then proves that it does exist

After Bill Burkett's filmed interview, the 60 Minutes team pass round a bag of Lay's potato chips. Throughout the scene this changes position; sometimes it's shown facing the front, and then suddenly it's facing the other way when the scene is shown from a different angle

The movie timeline shows June 2004 and Mary Mapes is meeting with Josh Howard and Mary Murphy

About 25 minutes into the film, there is an overhead shot of DFW airport and it features a view of the Skylink tram system that links the terminals. You can see the trams moving in the shot
This is the second time Topher Grace played a reporter in a major motion picture. The first being Spider-Man 3

Directorial debut of James Vanderbilt

This is the third collaboration between Dennis Quaid and Topher Grace, who previously appeared together in Traffic and In Good Company

Both Dan Rather in "Truth" and the character of Warren Justice (in a flashback) lose status within the field of journalism due to broadcasting a report that is later deemed erroneous

The movie is shooting in Australia at Cate Blanchett's request as she wanted to be close to her family while filming
