I'm a regular guy and I go to these places and I go, "OK, everyone talked to me about cannibalism, right? Everyone talked about cannibalism." Now I'm getting a lot of shit for talking about cannibalism. Whatever. Everyone talked to me about cannibalism! That's fucking crazy! So the actual... our audience goes, 'That's fucking insane, like, that's nuts!' The New York Times, meanwhile, is writing about surfing, and I'm sitting there going like, 'You know what?

When Johann Gutenberg invented the printing process around 1439, he probably couldn't foresee the future, where people would consider his invention redundant and obsolete.
The digital revolution , internet, etc have started to compete with printed media such as the legendary newspaper The New York Times, a newspaper that is depicted in this documentary.
We get follow some of their reporters, the job at the editing office, and also the new approach to the internet and surfpads.
But will The New York Times be able to compete with websites like Wikileaks etc?
And how will they survive in climate with ever descending ad incomes?
Will the internet completely destroy investigating journalism?
Because nowadays anyone can be investigating journalist by simply putting their discoveries on a personal blog or any other type of internetbased platform.
These and many other questions are discussed in this highly interesting documentary about media from one of the most prominent newspapers in the world.
The documentary also touches upon the heavy criticisms that newspaper received during the Judith Miller, Jayson Blair scandals and ever growing question, can we trust media at all?
The only flaws I can think of is that sometimes director Andrew Rossi seem to lack focus, not knowing what he wants to tell, he should made the viewers get closer to some of the people working at the New York Times.
I would love to know more about David Carrs background, a colourful journalist, and some of his co workers background.
But this film should been seen by anyone wanting to know more about media, journalism in this riveting documentary. So viewers who liked Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism (2004), The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers (2009), Starsuckers (2009) should see this one.
