THE NEWSPAPERMAN tells the story of the legendary newspaper editor Gene Roberts, often called the best editor in the country at a time when newspapers had unprecedented resources and impact. Roberts managed to turn the Philadelphia Inquirer – possibly the worst big-city paper in the country in the 1960s – into one of the very best. This film shows how he did it and how his career traced the arc of the rise and fall of American newspapers.
