Full event details

The film chronicles the events since July 2006 when beloved editor Jerry Roberts and five of his colleagues resigned from the Santa Barbara News-Press because of owner Wendy McCaw’s alleged abandonment of journalistic ethics. Since then, more than 70 News-Press employees have quit or been fired, and thousands in the county have voluntarily canceled subscriptions.

Watch the drama unfold onscreen this weekend with two final community viewings: Saturday, April 5, at 8 p.m., or Sunday, April 6, at 3 p.m. at Marjorie Luke Theatre (721 Cota St.).
