Wendy McCaw–Now In Panavision, Cinemascope and Wide Screen

Citizen McCaw is a documentary about the drama and the mama up in Santa Barbara. Back in July 2006, editor Jerry Roberts and five of his colleagues quit the Santa Barbara News-Press (the drama), owned by ethics-challenged gazillionairess Wendy McCaw (the mama). The film opens in Santa Barbara on March 7, barring intervention by McCaw’s legal team–who already tried to subpoena of all raw footage., a demand that was rejected by judge William Kocal.

Producers (who include Rod Lathim, Peter Seaman and Charles Minsky) said that more than 80 hours of footage were shot, including interviews with the Washington Post’s Ben Bradlee, journalist Ann Louise Bardach, former NBC News reporter Sander Vanocur, Ronald Reagan biographer Lou Cannon, and Alex Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center on Press, Politics and Public Policy.

We hope the producers were able to license the Beach Boys’ oldie classic.

Small Court Set Back For Santa Barbara News-Press

Wendy, Wendy what went wrong
Oh so wrong
We went together for so long

I never thought a guy could cry
‘Til you made it with another guy
Oh Wendy, Wendy left me alone
Hurt so bad

Wendy, Wendy don’t lose your head
Lose your head
Wendy don’t believe a word he says

I can’t picture you with him
His future looks awful dim
Oh Wendy, Wendy left me alone
Hurt so bad

Wendy I wouldn’t hurt you like that
No no no
I thought we had our love down pat
Guess I was wrong

The farthest thing from my mind
Was the day that I’d wake up to find
My Wendy
Wendy left me alone

Wendy, Wendy left me alone
Hurts so bad
Wendy, Wendy left me alone
Hurts so bad
Wendy, Wendy left me alone
Hurts so bad
Wendy, Wendy…
