Movie Info

Page One: Inside The New York Times deftly gains unprecedented access to The New York Times newsroom and the inner workings of the Media Desk. With the Internet surpassing print as our main news source and newspapers all over the country going bankrupt, Page One chronicles the transformation of the media industry at its time of greatest turmoil. Writers like Brian Stelter, Tim Arango and the salty but brilliant David Carr track print journalism's metamorphosis even as their own paper struggles to stay vital and solvent. Meanwhile, their editors and publishers grapple with existential challenges from players like WikiLeaks, new platforms ranging from Twitter to tablet computers, and readers' expectations that news online should be free. But rigorous journalism is thriving. Page One gives us an up-close look at the vibrant cross-cubicle debates and collaborations, tenacious jockeying for on-the-record quotes, and skillful page-one pitching that produce the "daily miracle" of a great news organization. -- (C) Official Site

    David Carr needs his own movie

    Interesting behind-the-scenes moments over the past 12 months, scattered throughout the movie, help to demonstrate the included arguments from the New York Times (and other legacy news media) for its necessity to exist in this new age of blogs and twitter. It's effective, but the movie could have been more efficient... it meanders.

    Very well thought out and interesting documentary. If you're into news or are a journalist of any kind, you have to watch this movie.

    Fascinating documentary follows a year behind the scenes at the New York Times. Takes a hard look at the decline of print media, but also reminds us why the NYT is the venerable, vital institution that it still is today. It may be in transition, but the film finds journalism alive and well at the NYT, and provides a compelling look at what makes them tick. An elegy and a tribute all in one.
