Product Description

With the Internet surpassing print as our main news source, and newspapers going bankrupt, Page One chronicles the media industry s transformation and assesses the high stakes for democracy.

The film deftly makes a beeline for the eye of the storm or, depending on how you look at it, the inner sanctum of the media, gaining unprecedented access to the New York Times newsroom for a year. At the media desk, a dialectical play-within-a-play transpires as writers like salty David Carr track print journalism s metamorphosis even as their own paper struggles to stay vital and solvent, publishing material from WikiLeaks and encouraging writers to connect more directly with their audience. Meanwhile, rigorous journalism including vibrant cross-cubicle debate and collaboration, tenacious jockeying for on-record quotes, and skilful page-one pitching is alive and well. The resources, intellectual capital, stamina, and self-awareness mobilized when it counts attest there are no shortcuts when analyzing and reporting complex truths.

First off, everyone who cares about newspapers and journalism in general or the New York Times in particular should see this movie.

Page One: Inside The New York Times is a compelling fly-on-the-wall documentary (released in 2011) that takes you inside the newsroom during a stressful, challenging time in The Gray Lady's history.

It's 2010, and as newspapers all around the country are going bankrupt, things are looking dire at The Times too. The question is, if it's this tough for the New York Times - and by extension every other national and major metro newspaper - what hope is there for everyone else?

For those who know the industry, the challenges are not new: Like most US newspapers, the NYT is struggling in the age of the internet. The high costs of the "legacy" business - a big newsroom, a network of global bureaus, a dead-tree product distributed inefficiently by a fleet of trucks, etc. etc. - are slamming up against a declining print readership and, even more importantly, a cratering ad market, with the Classified section already savaged by Craiglist and the "expensive" display advertising market tanking in the face of a brutal recession.

But if the future is all online, where does the future revenue come from? Especially in a world where, as the Times's Brian Stelter points out, more and more online readers have, "grown up in the era where everything seems free."

Beyond the business questions, the film also explores the crucial debate about the role newspapers like the Times play in American society. Are they, as then-Executive Editor Bill Keller says, "essential to a functioning democracy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold the front page! 3 Feb 2012
This is an excellent piece of film-making, a true fly-on-the-wall documentary of life in the newsroom and the turbulence affecting journalism as a profession due to the decline in print and increase in on-line reporting. Great for general interest or students of journalism and media. 5 star film-making.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't hold the presses 5 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having really enjoyed the excellent documentary about The New York Times photographer, Bill Cunningham, I was possibly expecting too much from this. Having worked in the commercial/advertising side of media for many years I have some insight in to how a newspaper works. But nothing I experienced could compare with the size and scale of The New York Times operation. There is much to admire in both their corporate and editorial structures. I would have appreciated a lot more on these aspects rather than featuring one journalist - even if he is a delightful maverick. Worth buying.
