David Carr and Brian Stelter on New York Times documentary ‘Page One’

In 2009, The New York Times was at a low point. Saddled with more than a billion dollars of debt, the paper was struggling to adapt to the rapidly changing media landscape, and forced to make significant layoffs.

The documentary “Page One: Inside The New York Times” chronicles this tumultuous year in the paper’s history. Alison Stewart speaks with two of the Times journalists featured in the film – veteran reporter David Carr and recent college graduate Brian Stelter – to talk about some of the most pressing issues facing print journalism today.

    I agree that “they should stop having opinions more and” just “report” instead. I love to read parts of the NYTimes (for me that’s the Science Times), and I did pay to subscribe to their online service when they offered it several years ago. But I’m not sure I’m going to go for it now that they are reinstating subscriptions services at a higher price. My reason? Their opinions often interfere with their coverage. I’m especially unhappy about the blinders they wear when it comes to the controversies about vaccinations. For the NYTimes, it seems that there is no valid controversy on this issue; as far as I’ve seen, they simply refuse to consider any opinion but their own. Because I know for a fact that I can’t trust their coverage on this one issue, I have no choice but to doubt their trustworthiness on any issue.
