Orwell rolls in his grave( Visual )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality. . .and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening." So wrote George Orwell in his novel "1984" a striking similarity to the current state of civic cluelessness. "1984" is no longer a date in the future. This documentary points out that today in America, media outlets are owned by five or six corporations, and the likes of Rupert Murdoch, GE, Sony, and the Disney Corporation are beholden to nothing but the bottom line. The seeming multiplicity of choices belies the actual concentration and vertical integration of the media in the hands of a few super-rich individuals. This film avers that a media monopoly is fatal to a democratic society, and raises several questions about this state of affairs: How is news reporting affected? How much influence do media lobbyists have over federal communication policies? Most frighteningly, do the corporate media reflect public opinion or create it?

The death of media and the fight to save democracy by Danny Schechter( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Death of Media, Emmy Award-winning journalist Danny Schechter offers a blistering polemic about why this unprecedented outpouring of interest in the media, and why other protests from Pope John Paul II to local radio DJs, signal the "death of old media."" "But Schechter doesn't tell the story you might expect - that of the oft-discussed biogosphere replacing daily newspapers, or of hopelessly ideological TV and radio broadcasts. Rather, he chronicles new players in the media - including Google, a wildly diverse world of independent media, and a growing media reform movement - while showing how these players have carefully organized around issues in the mainstream media." "Convinced that "we can't fix America without fixing the media," The Death of Media shows why the fight to change our media is bigger than any political fight yet."--Jacket

"When News Lies is an inside story of the media war behind the Iraq War, the American government's efforts to manipulate war coverage by playing on the media's own timidity and reluctance to do its job- report the news to the public. Veteran author, video journalist, and media critic Danny Schechter ("the News Dissector") takes us on a sometimes frightening, sometimes humorous journey behind the scenes of the media machine that sold us an invasion and rallied the public to support it." "This innovative and timely book includes the script and full length DVD of Schechter's award-winning and controversial documentary, "WMD" (Weapons of Mass Deception). Book jacket."--Jacket

His prescient new book, THE CRIME OF OUR TIME, is a hard-hitting investigation that shows how the financial crisis was built on a foundation of criminal activity. To tell this story, Schechter speaks with bankers involved in these activities, respected economists, insider experts, top journalists including Paul Krugman, and even a convicted white-collar criminal, Sam
