Documentary exploring the illustrious past, and much more challenging present, of The New York Times.


Review
Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times
With newspapers under increasing threat from the blogosphere, Andrew Rossi’s profile of The New York Times couldn’t be more opportune. Yet, while it provides an insight into the operation of the Media Desk entrusted with reporting on the electronic phenomena hastening its own demise, this is much more celebratory than investigatory. Consequently, Rossi is better at reminiscing about the stories that earned ‘the Gray Lady’ its 106 Pulitzer Prizes than scooping events like the laying off of 100 staffers. However, he elicits choice quotes from hacks like David Carr, a one-time crack addict who became the poster boy for traditional news gathering methods after exposing corruption at the rival Tribune group. Atmospheric and affectionate.


Verdict
Ironically, it lacks journalistic rigour but it's a fond, nostalgic look at the gilded history of the Grey Lady.
