Page One, The New York Times

The documentary, Page One is about you guessed it, a year in the life of The Times during today’s climate.  With blogs and Twitter and a million different websites connecting us from here to Katmandu, the sale of traditional news has plummeted.  As seen by the bankruptcy and closer of many of our country’s most notable journals, the scene of media has changed.

The film is interesting and easy to watch, but not illuminating by most standards.  There was nothing I didn’t already know about the troubles newspapers are facing and there was a lot left out that probably would have engaged me.  However, it was immersing and educational and I enjoyed the characters they chose to follow.

Page One: I recommend it for a lazy Sunday on the sofa.
