'The Wire' to Focus on Baltimore Newspaper

The final season of the HBO series The Wire, which dramatizes how real-world institutions and leaders repeatedly failed the people of Baltimore, gets under way Jan. 6. Creator David Simon is turning his critical eye on journalism, namely The Baltimore Sun and the role that paper plays on a dysfunctional urban stage. The past four seasons have scrutinized the police department, City Hall, and the school system.
