Love the New York Times and can't imagine print media without it. Interesting to see how it has had to reinvent itself. Really interesting doc especially for those who think twitter and facebook are the best...only...alternatives.

This documentary looks at the demise of print newspaper (I still remember buying the NY Times on Sundays for 8$ from Mags and Fags on Elgin street!!) Was interesting to discover some of the journalists such as David Carr and Brian Stelter. Did not like Sam Zell at all, he seems like an arrogant douche.

I agree with the criticisms expressed, even though the doc introduces us to fascinating characters (David carr especially) I was disappointed overall. I thought we would be exposed to how decisions are made about photographs and headlines that make page one. For a movie that I would think would have access to some of the best photojournalism , the cinematogaphy is limited to conferences, offices - mundane environments and there is very little sense of the urgency that a daily paper is working under. Strictly for newshounds.

I really wanted to like this film as I do care very much about the state of media and information delivery. But I just didn't get very much insight here. I learned that the NY Times office functions pretty much like my own - we are privy to mundane footage of staff meetings, cubicle conversations, cross team collaboration, messy workspaces, goodbye parties and so on. And yet through it all I am expected to buy into the idea that all of this is so very worthy and special.

I enjoyed this very much. It's worth a watch by anyone who appreciates serious journalism's role in informing those of us who want more than television news to make sense of the world. May the Times and other newspapers live on to do that.

Interesting look at the state of newspapers in the internet age. Not just about the New York Times but about the role of newspapers as well.

Staffers of "The New York Times" try repeatedly and without justification to bolster their publication's self-importance in this poorly organized, not very insightful documentary, ostensibly about the transitions modern newspapers are facing.
