More About the Author

Dean Miller was born in Memphis, Tennessee and raised in Vermont and now lives on Long Island.
A linguistic chameleon, he is afraid he now says "dwog" instead of "dawg."
For 25 years, he worked as a reporter and editor at daily newspapers in the Northern Rockies, mostly in Idaho. (Not Iowa, not Ohio. Idaho.)His work and that of his newsrooms won numerous regional awards for writing, for environmental and investigative reporting. His last paper, The Post Register of Idaho Falls, Idaho, was in its time the smallest paper to win national awards such as the $10,000 E.W. Scripps Award for Service to the First Amendment and the Livingston Award (also $10,000) awarded annually to the three best under-35 reporters at work in the U.S.
Miller is the fifth son of a mining engineer and a political activist, both of Washington State pioneer families.
Miller's first book credit was as lead researcher and limited co-writer (with the incomparable Jess Walter) of "Every Knee Shall Bow: The Truth and Tragedy of Ruby Ridge."
Fascinated by the mythology surrounding cougar attacks on humans, he began collecting attack stories while working in Sandpoint, Idaho in the mid-1980s. By 1995, his file of clippings was bursting. The number of attacks was on the rise and "Cat Attacks, True Stories and Hard Lessons From Cougar Country" was launched.
Around the same time, Miller edited a series of outdoor guide books for Post Publishing, including books in the "Byways" series and "The Insider's Guide to Yellowstone."
In 2005 and 2006, Miller led his paper's investigation of the Boy Scouts of America's failure to protect boys from the predations of a series of pedophile staffers in the Grand Teton Council's summer camps. The series revealed court fles that had been sealed by poweful allies of scouting. The report resulted in replacement of the Council's executive director, re-incarceration of a prolific pedophile and increased scrutiny of scouting, a beloved institution in the town.
The assertions of falsehood and media bias brought by scout staff and by wealthy local allies ofthe Grand Teton Council were never proved and no correction was ever sought, nor needed. Indeed, the chief critic of the report was forced to publish an apology to several of the pedophiles' victims, whose credibility he had attacked in attacking the reports.
The paper's experience is the subject of "In A Small Town," a documentary produced by Joe Rubin for WNET's "Expose" program about investigative reporting.
Miller was selected for a 2007-2008 Nieman Fellowship in Journalism at Harvard University, where he studied music, comparative religion and documentary film. Indeed, Miller is still working to finish his film about the woman songwriter whose "Twenty Flight Rock" Paul McCartney played to get into John Lennon's band.(Sir Paul? Oh, Sir Paul? A moment of your time?)
Shortly after returning to Idaho from Harvard, Miller was fired as editor of The Post Register.
He is now Director of the Center for News Literacy at Stony Brook University, the cradle of the News Literacy movement.
Miller teaches the course and also helps other campuses (and even high schools) launch News Literacy courses of their own.
Most recently, Miller wrote a chapter of "Page One: Inside the New York Times and the Future of Journalim" edited by NPR's David Folkenflik.

Format: Paperback
I saw this book on the shelf at the library and assumed it was either the precursor of the movie, or the book version of the movie. It's neither. As stated in the introduction, the book "takes the movie as a starting point."

In 17 illuminating essays, various writers take a look at the challenges facing journalism today, and shed considerable light on the subject of it's current and potential future evolution in the digital age.

The movie was good. This book is even better.

The book provides some powerful insights into the role of journalism in society and how old and new media can live together (maybe). However, I thought there was a lot of analysis but little fresh ideas for how to save newspapers like the Times. My favorite aspect of the book was learning about the News Literacy program at Stony Brook and the schools and communities challenging there citizens to really understand the news we consume everyday. As a teacher, I want to learn more about this program and find away to bring it to my school and students.

Unless you read the book Page One: Inside The New York Times and the Future of Journalism, you cannot grasp the deeper layers of the themes within the movie Page One. This book supplements my teaching of the new wave of web journalism that will be confronting my students as the move on from high school into the universities and/or careers in journalism. It should be a must-read from Page One movie watchers.

As a journalist, I knew I had to have this book and the DVD that goes along with it. It's a brilliant look inside the journalism industry.
