The media monopoly by Ben H Bagdikian( Book )

76 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 2,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since this classic on corporate control of the media was first published in 1997, the number of corporations dominating our media has shrunk from fifty to merely five.

The information machines; their impact on men and the media by Ben H Bagdikian( Book )

32 editions published between 1971 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today we are on the threshold of a change in human communications which is more powerful and perhaps more significant than all past changes in the technology of information. The way men deal with each other and with the distant world is about to be transformed by a combination of the computer, innovations in the transmission of signals, and new ways to feed images into this system and to take them out. All informational systems, including the news media, will be more intertwined with each other than they are today." This book focuses on what the content of daily information will be, what form it will be delivered in, and how it will be distributed throughout the population. It considers what the most likely technologies are that will change the way the next generation receives its news, what difference it makes in human affairs to have daily events reported rapidly, what the audience for news in the United States is like, and what some of the pecularities of the news in this country are. Some of the research done for this project on the social, economic, and technological forces that shape today's news in print and in broadcasting is reported. Finally, speculations are offered on what the new technical systems will do to the content and form of news in the United States during the remainder of this century. (Author/SH)
The most dangerous man in America : Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to the New York Times, making headlines around the world. [The film tells how] one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, president and Supreme Court -- a political thriller whose events led directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War."

Televised ombudsman by Kathleen Archibald( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proposal for a television program on which people in poverty areas could voice specific complaints with which the program would confront the responsible public or private agencies, request action, and follow up afterward. A skilled and fluent master of ceremonies, who is clearly not representative of established authority, would be essential to protect the program from becoming dull, repetitious, maudlin, irrational, or destructively hostile. Community groups such as the Sons of Watts or Venice Gangbusters could be used to check out complaints and the resulting action or inaction. Possible formats range from fairly elaborate documentaries to walking the street with a handheld camera and asking passersby, "What's bugging you?"
Fear and favor in the newsroom( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The film shows for the first time how ownership of the press by a small corporate elite constricts the free flow of ideas and information upon which our democracy depends. Journalists, including four Pulitzer Prize winners from The New York Times, NBC, PBS and other respected news organizations, reveal how they have been censored, squelched or fired for aggressively reporting on the wealthy and the powerful. The program also presents senior news executives, including the former Vice Chairman of The New York Times and the President of NBC News, who defend the work of their news organizations

Invisible crises : what conglomerate control of media means for America and the world( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hidden from public sight and mind today are invisible crises that threaten our democracy and existence even more than the crises we know about - or think we know about. These invisible crises include the promotion of practices that drug, hurt, poison, and kill thousands every day; cults of violence that desensitize, terrorize, and brutalize; the growing siege mentality of our cities; widening resource gaps and the most glaring inequalities in the industrial world; the costly neglect of vital institutions such as public education and the arts; and media-assisted make-believe image politics corrupting the electorial process. The contributors to this volume - exploring such unattended crises, analyzing why they are hidden, and focusing on the increasing concentration of culture-power that keeps them from view - maintain that a profound general crisis of social vision, public communication, and representative government underlies all of the invisible crises

Double vision : reflections on my heritage, life, and profession by Ben H Bagdikian( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As a child, Bagdikian lived in two worlds - the world of his puritanical clergyman-father, whose parish was in a small New England town, and the world of his truck-driver uncle and his grandfather who made bathtub beer during Prohibition. Bagdikian had to attend church regularly but he made money for college tuition on a boardwalk with friends who were pitchmen and gamblers. As a professional journalist, Bagdikian continued his insider-outsider roles - his double vision - as one of the country's leading journalists and as a leading critic of his own profession. An enemy of secrecy in government, as editor at the Washington Post Bagdikian obtained and was instrumental in overcoming governmental censorship in publishing the secret "Pentagon Papers" on the Vietnam War
