The Czech president is expected to announce his decision whether he is going to run for the office again. The newsrooms in the Czech Television and Hospodářské noviny daily have been closely monitoring the event since early morning. This gives us opportunity to get a close look at two different teams of reporters and editors as they put together their “breaking news”, both covering the same event. However, the way these two newsrooms go about their business is not quite the same. The resulting film offers a very fresh and authentic inside look into the practices of journalists working for the traditional media, within the context of our hectic times characterised by information overload.
