This fillm is a gloss of the history of the Hearst empire, media markets and ironically both diversification (crossing over into non-newspaper media) and consolidation (mergers) for financial interests. At times engaging as the early years unfold within a developing national market, much of the film frankly feels like a corporate puff piece, with little critical attention paid to the dark side of Hearst Corp.
