The Newspaper-Biz Documentary Starring Ben Bradlee, Ed Asner ... and Laura Miller

Dallas-based documentary filmmaker Mark Birnbaum is, at this very moment, in Wharton, Texas, prepping for a documentary about hometown boy Horton Foote -- and we'll have more about that project on Unfair Park tomorrow, on the first day of shooting. But first we wanted to preview the trailer for Birnbaum and former Dallas Morning News TV critic Manny Mendoza's forthcoming documentary Stop the Presses: The American Newspaper in Peril, which I mentioned in July. Birnbaum said today he expects to have the doc finished at the end of January. --Robert Wilonsky
