"Media junkies will love Andrew Rossi's snapshot of a year in the life of the NEW YORK TIMES....[With] several access-all-areas glimpses of what it's like working for one of the world' most venerable newspapers.."
In an era when newspapers are becoming increasingly obsolete, director Andrew Rossi offers a glimpse behind the scenes of the newsroom that has kept America informed for generations yet now struggles to remain relevant as more readers turn to the Internet to stay informed on current events. With their reputations on the line and the Internet Sword of Damocles hanging over their heads, the editors and writers at The New York Times battle accusations of inaccuracy, and embrace blogging as a means of retaining readers who might otherwise allow their longtime subscriptions to expire.
