“Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times” will be screened this week at the film forum. The director, Andrew Rossi, was given access to the newsroom of the New York Times and followed reporters working at the Media Desk, a department specifically created to grapple with the changing media industry.
Last spring, to the dismay of English majors everywhere, the New York Times instituted a paywall limiting access to online content. The move seemed overdue, the stock prices of the New York Times Company have fallen steadily since 2004. The move appears to be working.
If you want to learn about the future of print media or if you’re interested in the company that sends stacks of papers to campus each day, make sure to get down to the Film Forum. On Thursday night there will be a panel featuring Barbara Lombardo (Managing Editor of the Saratogain), Rex Smith (Editor of the Times Union) and Jeff Goodell (local writer).
