Inquest : the Warren Commission and the establishment of truth by Edward Jay Epstein( Book )

38 editions published between 1935 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mr. Epstein...began this book with the intention of writing a case study of the nature and activity of an extraordinary government commission. He has accomplished this task brilliantly. But in the course of interviewing nearly all members of the [Warren] Commission, and many members of its staff, he discovered that the official version of the Kennedy assassination fails to contend with serious contradictions presented by the evidence. Inquest clearly traces the process by which this official story came into being; it does not indulge in theoretical speculation about a deliberate suppression of crucial evidence. Mr. Epstein instead proposes an explanation based on the concept of "political truth": the Commission, sincerely convinced that the national interest would best be served by the termination of rumors, and predisposed by its make-up and by the pressure of time not to search more deeply, failed to answer some of the essential questions about the tragedy. Inquest includes hitherto unpublished government documents and illustrations. Although the author's revelations are startling, he nowhere makes unsupported claims; his style is cool and objective. A sober, new view of the way the Commission dealt with the central event of our recent history, this book is destined to induce widespread discussion and debate." --Book jacket

News from nowhere: television and the news by Edward Jay Epstein( Book )

28 editions published between 1973 and 2000 in English and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an age when more of the American public relies on television for its news than any other medium, Edward Jay Epstein's detailed, probing analysis of the decision-making process in network news organizations has achieved the status of a classic. Mr. Epstein shows how internal corporate policy and budget requirements shape the direction of television news coverage. What we see on the network evening news, he demonstrates, does not mirror reality because TV's essential aim is not to inform but to excite viewers enough to induce them to "stay tuned.""--Jacket

How America lost its secrets : Edward Snowden, the man and the theft by Edward Jay Epstein( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking exposé that convincingly challenges the popular image of Edward Snowden as hacker turned avenging angel, while revealing how vulnerable our national security systems have become--as exciting as any political thriller, and far more important. After details of American government surveillance were published in 2013, Edward Snowden, formerly a subcontracted IT analyst for the NSA, became the center of an international controversy: Was he a hero, traitor, whistle-blower, spy? Was his theft legitimized by the nature of the information he exposed? When is it necessary for governmental transparency to give way to subterfuge? Edward Jay Epstein brings a lifetime of journalistic and investigative acumen to bear on these and other questions, delving into both how our secrets were taken and the man who took them. He makes clear that by outsourcing parts of our security apparatus, the government has made classified information far more vulnerable; how Snowden sought employment precisely where he could most easily gain access to the most sensitive classified material; and how, though he claims to have acted to serve his country, Snowden is treated as a prized intelligence asset in Moscow, his new home
Three days in May : sex, surveillance, and DSK by Edward Jay Epstein( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here investigative reporter Edward Jay Epstein casts fresh doubt on the events surrounding a now-infamous sexual encounter between Dominique Strauss-Kahn -- better know by his initials, 'DSK' -- and a maid at New York's Sofitel hotel. Epstein shows that DSK, then managing director at the IMF and a leading contender to unseat Nicolas Sarkozy as president of France, was under close surveillance both before and after the incident. Just two days before, French authorities intercepted a sensitive phone conversation with DSK in Washington, DC. It looks as if he was carrying his own bug: a smart phone. T
