Citizen McCaw

Sam Tyler recounts the ongoing controversy surrounding multimillionaire Wendy P. McCaw, who bought the venerable Santa Barbara News-Press in 2000 and has been accused of gutting its journalistic standards to further her personal agenda. The battle between McCaw and her newsroom, which erupted into public view when five key editors resigned in July 2006, not only serves as a microcosm of big media but calls into question what will happen across the U.S. as newspapers fail and communities lose their most trustworthy sources of local reporting. 80 min.
