Howell Raines, Change Agent

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary A Fragile Trust, former New York Times executive editor Howell Raines explains how he saw himself as a change agent who had to “respond aggressively to the technological revolution that was overtaking newspapers.” The clip also features author Seth Mnookin (Hard News) and Jayson Blair on how Raines’ edict may have lead to subsequent issues.

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.
