Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times - Movie Review

Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times
(R) 88 minutes C+
The Death of Newspapers

Starring David Carr, Bill Keller, Gay Talese, David Remnick, Andrew Ross Sorkin, Larry Ingrassia, Seth Mnookin, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Nick Denton, Jimmy Wales, Rick Lyman, Dean Bacquet, Ken Auletta, Bruce Headlam and Carl Bernstein.

I think journalists are cool, and I love watching how an edition of the newspaper is born each day. Page One, Andrew Rossi's documentary about the New York Times is an interesting examination of dead tree journalism.  However, there were few  revelations in this examination. This would've been better off as a documentary about David Carr first, the New York Times second. 

Recommended for news junkies and/or anyone interested in journalism.
