On Friday, March 7, the long-awaited documentary Citizen McCaw premieres at the Arlington Theater in downtown Santa Barbara. The film chronicles events since July 2006, when editor Jerry Roberts and five of his colleagues quit the Santa Barbara News-Press, citing owner and Co-publisher Wendy McCaw’s abandonment of journalistic ethics, which McCaw denied. Since then, McCaw and dozens of her former staffers have been engaged in a fierce clash of wills that raises important national questions of journalistic ethics and media ownership.
The film screens at 7:30pm followed by audience dialogue with the producers at 9pm.
