Extra! Extra! See All About It!Streaming Video - 2012
With its principal focus on Boston's two giant newspapers, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald, and with lesser glances at two smaller regional suburban papers, this program looks at the faces behind the bylines and examines the exhilaration and frustrations of the newspaper industry. The program talks with columnists, general assignment reporters, and beat reporters; examines the differences between the two major papers; and describes the competition between reporters in the race for exclusives and scoops. It also examines design and formatting. How do special sections, zoned editions, and classifieds attract advertisers? What is the relationship between the two giants and the smaller suburban papers? The program offers a fast-paced yet detailed analysis of how newspapers, which play so influential a role in our society, come to be what they are.
