    “Since 2015, the University of Arizona School of Journalism has co-hosted the Journalism on Screen series at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway. Other sponsors are the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Arizona Daily Star, the Arizona Daily Wildcat/UA-TV3, The New York Times and Arizona Inn.
    The series, organized by professors William Schmidt and Nancy Sharkey, with help from The Loft’s Jeff Yanc, features Q-and-A sessions with journalists and writers after the screenings. Schmidt and Sharkey are both former editors at The New York Times.


    Sunday, Nov. 18, 2 p.m.: “All the President’s Men.”
    Afterward, Arizona Daily Star metro columnist Tim Steller will talk about the film, reporting and democracy with Tucson Weekly Editor Jim Nintzel, a former J-school adjunct instructor, who will moderate an audience Q&A. Director Alan J. Pakula turned journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s best-selling account of their Watergate investigation into a 1976 film with Robert Redford (Woodward) and Dustin Hoffman (Bernstein).”

    1. Full house today at this Journalism on Screen showing of this gripping drama. Had forgotten how investigative reporting was done back in the 1970’s with typewriters, notepads and rotary land lines. And seeing footage of Republican President Richard Nixon was uncany. Jim Nintzel started off the discussion at the end jokingly asking Steller “how do you sleep at night as the enemy of the American people”? Then he asked questions about how journalism had changed since the days of shoe leather, any echoes of today’s events, is there an alternative universe today w/ Fox & other TV news coverage, is the press being set up by fake news reports/videos? Couldn’t stay for rest of interview as was meeting former Tucson Citizen reporter AJ Flick for an early Thanksgiving dinner. And I have reminiscences of when I met Robert Redford and his wife at the HNL airport…
