Watch Compelling New Video ‘Perils of Today’s Newspapers’

I highly recommend a new documentary this month on the perils facing today’s newspapers, particularly in mid-size cities like Bristol, Connecticut.  

The 55-minute film released this month is available for free online.  It’s an original documentary by Connecticut Public Television shows longtime journalists Bristol struggling to adapt to the online world, while trying to fulfill traditional journalistic functions with new business models adapted for today’s needs.  It was well-done from beginning to end, and I was particularly happy to see several old friends from Connecticut with such insightful comments. 

Here’s an excerpt from On Deadline: Is Time Running Out for the Press? is co-produced by John and Rosemary O’Neill and available on the National Newspaper Association website for free.
