The list. The 15 Best Movies About Journalism

"1. His Girl Friday (1940)
Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell butt heads in this story of an ex-husband and editor trying to win back his star reporter and ex-wife, whom he still loves. But its about more than that. Its about the dehumanization of their subjects. Theres one bleak exchange about changing the time of a hanging to make the evening edition. Its cutthroat. Russells character laments that she doesnt want to be a reporter, she just wants to be a woman. Its a bit dated, but the ethical dilemmas are devastating. And in the end, Hildy is more journalist than lady.
2. All The Presidents Men (1976)
Theres three types of freshman journalism majors: ones who want to be Carrie Bradshaw, ones who want to write for Rolling Stone, and ones who want to be Woodward and Bernstein. I was the last one. All The Presidents Men follows the Watergate scandal and features Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman as sexier versions of Woodward and Bernstein. Nice."

From tomorrow, The Irish Times will change in look and size. Most significantly, our journalism will be strengthened to better serve our readers from Monday to Friday, and to do so in a distinctive way at the weekend.

Renowned designers Palmer Watson have joined us in redesigning the newspaper to make it more modern, more readable, and more convenient to consume by virtue of being a little narrower in size.

We have talked to readers, regular and occasional, about how they read the paper, their preferences and what engages them. We have taken on board research on the case for change in presentation of our journalism today, particularly in response to how people consume news through a wide variety of devices and yet retain an affinity for print."
