On today's show: We’ll look at the state of the American newspaper—from Philadelphia, which may soon be without a daily paper, to Seattle, where the last surviving paper has just begun to turn a profit. Also, Studio 360’s Kurt Andersen on his latest book, “Reset,” about the positive things he thinks will come out of the economic downturn. Then, we speak to filmmaker Dan Klores about his Peabody winning documentary “Black Magic.” Plus, our latest Projections segment looks at how journalism has been portrayed in the movies.
