What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this documentary about the last few turbulent years in the history of the New York Times is rated R primarily for its strong but infrequent language, which includes several uses of "f--k," as well as "s--t" and "p---y." There's some sexual innuendo in the context of a newspaper story, and viewers see some vaguely disturbing YouTube video footage. One reporter is also a recovering drug addict; he talks openly about his past problem. While its content may not be age-appropriate for younger viewers, this dynamic documentary has the power to inspire teens and up to get involved in the exciting business of journalism.
