"Result is that there is less scrutiny of local officials, and when nobody is watching, things happen ... And that will result in more corruption, as sure as we're standing here."

That quotation is taken from a new PBS report on the state of American newspapers, "Black and White and Dead All Over." The 83-minute documentary follows the rise of U.S. papers and the struggles of the entire industry in the last few years -- struggles in journalism, economics and reach.

Even for someone in the business who's well aware of where the industry stands, it's nonetheless an in-depth report that's eye-opening in its frankness. Warning: There are a few parts that contain adult language, for what that's worth.
