This Friday at the Loft: "Page One: Inside the New York Times"

Posted By on Wed, Jul 6, 2011 at 1:01 PM

Page One: Inside the New York Times, a documentary on the future of journalism from inside the belly of its biggest beast, will open at the Loft on Friday.

Here's more from the Loft website:

At the film’s heart is Times columnist David Carr, a former drug addict who is both the paper’s strongest advocate and its most irascible, charismatic iconoclast; whether publishing an exposé on the Tribune Corporation’s internal issues or giving a bratty editor a verbal slap-down, he brings a down-to-earth humanity into such overarching issues as new versus old media, corporate control and journalistic integrity. Thanks to Carr and the other news hands interviewed here, the film makes clear that whether it’s online or off, printed or downloaded, what matters—and what’s at stake—is good journalism.

And amidst all the tumult and turmoil, rigorous journalism is still thriving, as evidenced by PAGE ONE's fascinating, up-close look at the vibrant cross-cubicle debates and collaborations, tenacious jockeying for on-record quotes and skillful page-one pitching that brings the most venerable newspaper in America to fruition each and every day.
