"The Falling Man" -- a documentary on 9/11

Almost 5 million have watched this documentary on the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11.

It tells the events of that day, but unlike other documentaries, it focuses on attempts after the attack to identify a man in an AP photo who chose to jump from the WTC before he asphyxiated or burned up.

Media critics likely will view it as further proof of the excesses of journalism, but for me, it's reinforcement of my view that we shouldn't be afraid of the truth, however painful it may be.
