In “News War: What’s Happening to the News,” coming Feb. 27, 2007, at 9 pm on PBS (check local listings). America’s major network news
divisions and daily newspapers are under siege, facing mounting pressure for profits from corporate owners, and growing challenges from cable television and the Internet. FRONTLINE talks to network executives, journalists, Wall Street analysts, bloggers, and key players at Google and Yahoo! who are all battling for survival and market dominance in a rapidly changing world of news. FRONTLINE also goes inside the embattled newsroom of “The Los Angeles Times,” one of the last remaining papers in the country still covering major national stories. Under severe pressure from Wall Street to cut costs and to compete for “eyeballs” in a new media world, editors at the paper are urgently trying to figure out what this means for their future news coverage and their public service mission.
