Check out the trailer:
Newspaper Pioneers: The History of the North Dakota Press
Too bad the folks in the trailer are not identified, but the gent who says that the media in this country isn’t the Washington Post or the New York times, it’s the small papers in North Dakota is 100 percent correct. Small newspapers make up the bulk of newspapers in the US; from mom and pop operations to mid-sized newspaper groups, all are community minded.
I suspect that a film like this could bee made in any of the states.
I hope that the entire film will be online one of these days.
