I went to the movies and saw “Page One: Inside the New York Times,” which premiered here in Washington yesterday.
For a former newspaperman, I must say it doesn’t get any better than this.
Andrew Rossi’s excellent documentary about the state of journalism — newspapers, the Internet, television — told through the New York Times, and, in particular, through its quirky media columnist David Carr, is , of course, a must see for everyone interested in the welfare of America today.
Never nostalgic, it is a sad movie for all of us who love newspapers. The state of journalism and its uncertain future includes the scenario where even a newspaper like the New York Times does not survive. Imagine…what has the world come to?
