The iPad Cometh in a New Clip from 'Page One: Inside the New York Times'

To the average consumer, the initial release of Apple's iPad was thrilling principally for the stylish, intuitive, and convenient pornography browsing that the technological marvel no doubt provides, but for newsmen and newswomen in the ink-stained realm of traditional publication, it represented something entirely different.  The new documentary Page One: Inside the New York Times chronicles, with unprecedented access, a year inside the venerable paper's newsroom as declining circulations and economic realities increased anxieties about the still-unclear future of journalism in the digital age.  A new clip from the film reflects this uncertainty, with reporter and singular character David Carr reacting to hoopla around the iPad's launch and even taking the tablet for a spin.

This clip made its debut on Hulu, which itself is quite representative of our changing media-consumption habits in this fabulous modern age.

The documentary, which has been glowingly reviewed on the festival circuit since its premiere at Sundance this year, is directed by Andrew Rossi, who also co-wrote with Kate Novack

Page One: Inside The New York Times opens in limited release this Friday, June 24th, thanks to Magnolia Pictures.  Check your local listings, as they say, and if it's not yet playing in your town, check back for updates on an expanded release.
