Summary Takes a critical look at how local news is produced, reported, and packaged at WCNC-TV in Charlotte, N.C. Offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on the challenges facing American television news in general and the tensions between ratings and journalistic ethics, as TV news directors and station owners across the country struggle to increase ratings in the face of competition from the Internet and other news media. In this segment, news director Keith Connors goes home to Ashtabula, Ohio, for Christmas, and is struck by the contrast with Charlotte, realizing why he left to cover news in other people's communities. His former reporter, Bea Thompson, rejects opportunities elsewhere to serve the city in which she grew up. After Connors orchestrates his news team's coverage of the turn of the millennium, he and his viewers wonder if WCNC's experiment is a hope for television journalism or an impossible dream.
