Journalism is dead. Journalism is evolving. Journalism as we know it today will live forever. With the onset of blogging and social media, everyone has a take on where news reportage will go in the years to come, and while that tiresome debate rages on with new declarative statements seemingly being made every week, amid the all the noise, the New York Times remains one of the banner institutions. Hell, they literally stopped the presses for the late breaking Osama Bin Laden story last night -- you can check out the before-and-after front pages here. And there's a reason the folks at the NYT printed an extra 125,000 copies of today's paper -- people still turn to them as an authority on what's happening.

Page One: Inside The New York Times” takes on the venerable institution and a trailer has landed for the film. We caught up with it at SXSW and while we didn't think it quite captured the ebb and flow of being in a newsroom, and kind of wished the film was more about the endlessly fascinating David Carr, we have to admit, it was still a very compelling watch.

The film hits theaters on June 24th. Full synopsis and trailer below (or in HD at Apple).

Andrew Rossi's riveting documentary Page One: Inside The New York Times had its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and was acquired by Magnolia Pictures and Participant Media for theatrical release this June. In the tradition of great fly-on-the-wall documentaries, the film deftly gains unprecedented access to the New York Times newsroom and the inner workings of the Media Desk. With the Internet surpassing print as our main news source and newspapers all over the country going bankrupt, Page One chronicles the transformation of the media industry at its time of greatest turmoil. Writers like Brian Stelter, Tim Arango and the salty but brilliant David Carr track print journalism's metamorphosis even as their own paper struggles to stay vital and solvent, while their editors and publishers grapple with up-to-the-minute issues like controversial new sources and the implications of an online pay-wall. Meanwhile, rigorous journalism is thriving--Page One gives us an up-close look at the vibrant cross-cubicle debates and collaborations, tenacious jockeying for on-record quotes, and skillful page-one pitching that brings the most venerable newspaper in America to fruition each and every day.
