A New York Times' review of "Page One - Inside The New York Times"

New York Times :: "Page One: Inside The New York Times" is a documentary about the newspaper and the people who put it out. All of these people know far more than Michael Kinsley (the author) do about The Times and are better positioned to judge the movie. But what might strike nonjournalists as an advantage looks to journalists like a disadvantage, in fact a disqualification. It’s a “conflict of interest.”

At the June 9 screening of Page One, a documentary about The New York Times, hosted by Talese, very few attendees could see any warts on the film, least of all Talese himself. The film’s director, Andrew Rossi, had spent a year following reporters and editors from the Times’s media desk.
