This documentary about newspapers around the world going out of business, the New York Times in particular, takes an outsider's perspective on the press. Where is it headed? How long does it have left? These are just a couple questions the documentary begins to answer. With new technology on the brink, newspapers are finding it hard to keep up with the news. Social networking and media sites like Facebook and Twitter make it hard for the newspapers to report on current events because Facebook and Twitter can instantly update their websites whereas the newspapers must decide what to publish the day before the news comes out, causing them to lag behind.
What was once the cornerstone of information in America is slowly dwindling away. Recent discoveries indicate that newspapers will still be around for years to come despite advancements in information technology. Reports say that people want the choice between the two media sources, just not one or the other, which lends hope to the newspaper industry.
