The Day Our Earth Stood Still
Don Graham's decision to sell The Washington Post was his reverse Sophie's Choice moment.
She had to decide which cherished child to save and which to send to the gas chamber. Don and the Graham family weren't forced to make an anguishing choice but did so anyway. They relinquished the newspaper they love in order to protect it.
If the comparison sounds hyperbolic, you don't know the Grahams.
