A Year As A Fly On The Wall At The New York Times
As the Internet surpasses print as our main news source, provocative questions continue to arise. Can rigorous journalism thrive in a world where readers expect that online news will be free? Will print journalism survive challenges from players like WikiLeaks and emerging platforms like Twitter? And if so what will it look like? Those are just a few of the questions filmmaker Andrew Rossi set out to answer in his new documentary, Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times. As the name suggests, this film takes us inside the New York Times newsroom for an unprecedented look at what is perhaps America’s most respected news organization. What did he learn? He shares that with us.
