'Page One: Inside The New York Times' Delivers

Discover the story behind the stories with Page One: Inside The New York Times. As a certified snoop, I loved getting the skinny on the behemoth that's actually not so "behemothy" at a closer look.  

"In the tradition of great fly-on-the-wall documentaries, 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." magpictures.com


Post Snark: I could watch the lovably crusty David Carr all day. Someone needs to make a movie about his life and get Hugh Laurie to play him.
