Here’s Bruce Headlam, the New York Times’ Media Editor, on The Daily Show discussing the Page One documentary and other things. Headlam says that he didn’t want to participate in the movie, but that enough of the media reporters did, so he agreed. He also admits something that those in the New York media scene might not want to hear: That media reporting isn’t that important.

When Jon Stewart asks him if the Times was concerned the film would capture an “obsolete time in America,” Headlam replies that he was a little worried, because “We cover the media, we’re not the most important part of the Times.” Imagine! A media reporter admitting that what he does isn’t the most vital thing ever! It’s rather jarring.

If you’re a media reporter, go ahead and take a minute to compose yourself. After you’ve recovered, watch the rest of the clip, because it’s pretty interesting.

Trailer for Page One: Inside The New York Times

The trailer for the documentary Page One: Inside The New York Times is now available on iTunes, but because FishbowlNY loves you, we’ve got it right here. As we’ve mentioned, the film – which releases in June – provides an inside look at the paper, and features some writers like Brian Stelter and David Carr.

If the trailer is to be trusted, this movie is going to be great. Do yourself a favor and check it out. It’s under three minutes, which makes it shorter than the video for Brandy’s I Wanna Be Down, and we know how often you watch that. So there’s really no excuse.
