Buying the war( Visual )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bush administration marketed and sold the war in Iraq to the American people. How and why did the press buy it, and what does that say about the role of journalists in helping the public sort out fact from propaganda? In this program, veteran journalist Bill Moyers, award-winning producer Kathleen Hughes, and their investigative team piece together the reporting and political spin that shaped the public mind prior to, during, and following the 2003 invasion. Exposing the disappearance of a watchdog mentality in mainstream newspaper and TV journalism, the documentary also highlights the work of intrepid Knight Ridder reporters who dug beneath the surface of administration claims, only to be drowned out by the drums of war. Further insight comes from journalists Dan Rather, former anchor of CBS evening news; Tim Russert of NBC's Meet the press; Bob Simon of 60 minutes; and Walter Isaacson, former chairman of CNN"--Container

Yitzhak Rabin soldier of peace( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He was a hardened soldier who astonished the world with a bold offer of peace. But while thousands of Israelis sang of hope, an assassin's bullets proved that hate would be slow to die. Yitzhak Rabin's life was the life of modern Israel itself. Born in Jerusalem in 1922, he joined the Haganah underground army as a teenager and became a commander in the war for independence. He was the architect of Israel's lightning triumph in the Six-Day War and the nation's first native-born Prime Minister. But his greatest victory came when he achieved the unthinkable the historic peace accord between Israel and the PLO. The film spotlights Rabin's marriage to Leah Schlossberg and the celebrated handshake during the Oslo Accords with Yasir Arafat, in the presence of President Bill Clinton. It's a thought-provoking portrait of the man who stood tall in times of war and gave his life in the name of peace
