Rush Limbaugh : an army of one by Zeʼev Chafets( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there have been plenty of hatchet jobs on Rush Limbaugh, this is the first serious examination of his career and persona. Expanded from Zev Chafets's much-discussed cover story for The New York Times Magazine, this is a penetrating biography of a leading conservative power player. For more than twenty years, Limbaugh has used his microphone to entertain and enrage the largest audience in American broadcasting, and has set the agenda for the American Right. While Limbaugh's public persona is instantly recognizable, his background and private life are often misunderstood. This book provides a personal look at the self-proclaimed "most dangerous man in America," who gave Chafets extensive interviews and unprecedented access to his inner circle. Chafets has talked at length to everyone in Rush's life: family, staff, friends, even his psychologist. What emerges is a portrait of a master entertainer, a public intellectual, a political force, and a fascinating man.--From publisher description

Roger Ailes : off camera : an inside look at the founder and head of Fox News by Zeʼev Chafets( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Ailes is the quintessential man behind the curtain. He more or less invented modern political consulting and helped Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush win their races for the White House. Then he reinvented himself as a master of cable television, first as the head of CNBC and, since 1996, as the creator and leader of Fox News, the most influential news network in the country. To liberals, Ailes is an evil genius who helped polarize the country by breaking the mainstream media's long monopoly on what constitutes news. To conservatives, he's a champion of free speech and fair reporting whose values and view of America reflect their own. But no one doubts that Ailes has transformed journalism. Barack Obama once called him "the most powerful man in America"--And given that Fox News has changed the way millions understand the world, it may be true. Yet for all that fame and infamy, very few people know the real person behind the headlines. Journalist Zev Chafets received unprecedented access to Ailes and his family, friends, and Fox News colleagues. The result is a candid, compelling portrait of a fascinating man. We see Ailes in action at Fox News and hear him reflect on personal matters he has never before discussed publicly. And we discover the heart of his sometimes surprising political beliefs: his profane piety and his unwavering belief in the values of his small-town Ohio boyhood. Ailes loves to fight, but he is a happy warrior who has somehow managed to charm and befriend many of the people he has defeated in political campaigns and television wars. Barbara Walters, Rachel Maddow, Jesse Jackson, the Kennedy clan-all are unexpected Ailes fans. Chafets also gives us an unprecedented look at the inner workings of Fox News and explores Ailes's relationships with Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Megyn Kelly, Neil Cavuto, Chris Wallace, and the other stars he has nurtured. Ultimately, Ailes is neither villain nor hero but a man full of contradictions and surprises. As Chafets writes, "What will he do next? What stokes his competitive fires and occasional rages? How to reconcile his acts of exceptional loyalty and private generosity (even to rivals) with his impulse to present himself to the world as a ruthless leg breaker? What makes Roger run-and where, if anywhere, is the finish line? As Ailes himself might say: I report, you decide."
Heroes and hustlers, hard hats and holy men : inside the new Israel by Zeʼev Chafets( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its dramatic birth, Israel has excited the imagination of the Western World. In the process it has yielded some enduring prototypes--the pure-hearted pioneer turning the desert into a garden; the intellectual citizen-soldier with a chessboard in his kit bag and Haydn playing on the transistor radio next to his tank. These high-voltage personalities are the stuff of myth, and Israel is a truly mythological country, often seen as a kind of gigantic Jewish theme park featuring Bibleland, Kibbutzville, Masada, with live sets from Fiddler on the Roof and the entire cast of Exodus. Israelis are supposed to be the brave, patriotic, tough-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside combination of Tevye the Milkman, Elijah the Prophet, and Paul Newman. In much the same way that Barzini wrote about the Italians, Chafets offers Heroes and Hustlers, Hard Hats and Holy Men as an insider's view of the real Israel and what makes it tick. This book is organized around the disparity between mythological Israel and the real one. It is an essentially affectionate and respectful report on a nation with more internal contradictions and characters than anyplace else on earth. Here is a close-up look at politics in Tel Aviv, life in the army, Israeli rednecks, life with a rock'n'roll band on the road (including the front lines), the impact of the Holocaust on young Israelis, the player-fan relationship Israelis have with the Diaspora, the stories of some weird immigrant groups, the view of Jerusalem from a prowl car, the impact of the brawling 1984 election, the life of Israeli glamour girls, and how the law of return helped Israel win a European basketball title -- and more. People and events are described and analyzed, the reader is shown how these disparate elements fit together, and what they mean for the future of the country. Here are the real people of the real Israel in a penetrating, iconoclastic , and often hilarious report of the place the author calls "a good country in a bad neighborhood."

The life and Continuing Legacy of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
A match made in heaven : why the jews need the evangelicals and by Zeʼev Chafets( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of an extraordinary year, Zev Chafets'former New York Daily News columnist and onetime director of the Israeli government press office'traveled the world to explore the improbable confluence of Jews and evangelicals. He spent quality time with Jerry Falwell, visited Jewish cadets at West Point, attended the world's biggest Christian retail show, embarked on a road trip with the rabbi with the largest gentile following since Jesus, journeyed to the Holy Land with a band of repentant Christian pilgrims, and broke bread with George W. Bush and five hundred fellow Jewish Republicans. A Match Made in Heaven is the penetrating, engaging, and often hilarious narrative of Chafets's determined quest to get to the root of a very serious question: Why do evangelicals support Israel so strongly' Equal parts history, comedy, travelogue, and political tract, it is a smart and adventurous odyssey along a rapidly changing religious and political border
