This documentary offers a spectrum view of the venerable newspaper at its most vulnerable state and a look at one of the world's most respected newsrooms in the middle of shifting media significance. Director Andrew Rossi was granted complete access to the newsroom, capturing reaction to the ever-present question: What would happen if The New York Times went under? Page One documents the paper's losing battle against the Internet, but the movie tells more than it shows. While the movie promises a look “Inside the New York Times,” there's only a brief glance at the paper's center of action, the Media Desk. And really, does anyone other than journalists and news junkies care about this stuff? Still, for those who do care, it's a raw and honest account of a small but influential sector of the paper. And ultimately it's affirmation that The New York Times isn’t going anywhere … ever.
