Danny Schechter's dissection of news from all possible sources suggests that the media have become partners in the war against Iraq. They are under government direction to film and record the conflict as it suits, being used as propaganda tools to mould American and world public opinion, in its favour. Presented also are cases of media muzzling of reporters, and intimidation by the government and its foot-soldiers from Fox News, creating a climate of fear and self-censorship on news broadcasting. The result is uncritical and subjective news reporting. Some research reports indicate that many stories are created or distorted; and, false stories make the link between Saddam and al-Qaeda, leading to widespread public misperceptions about Saddam and al-Qaeda, and his WMD. Whereas, little attention is paid to U.S. weapons which are causing the mass destruction of Iraqi civilians. Most Americans are unaware of the biased coverage of the conflict. Such findings raise concerns amongst some journalists about pervasive media irresponsibility and journalistic ethics. There are calls to fight back against deceptive news reporting, massive media concentration and jingoism posing as journalism2854ocn056017594visu20040.23Orwell rolls in his graveBrings together an ex-"60-Minutes" producer, a United States congressman, as well as some of the country's leading intellectual voices on the media to examine the mix of business, politics and ideology that is the modern mainstream media. From the very size of the media monopolies and how they got that way to who decides what gets on the air and what doesn't, this film moves through a troubling list of questions and news stories that go unanswered and unreported in the media. Does the corporate media reflect public opinion or create it?2194ocn061362054book20050.76Schechter, DannyThe death of media and the fight to save democracy"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."--BOOK JACKET+-+91830112451931ocn320273236visu20090.19Barack Obama, people's president the campaign that changed historyReveals the untold story behind the unprecedented grassroots effort that elected an unknown candidate President of the United States.

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."

He was labeled a "doom and gloomer" until the economy melted down, vindicating his warnings. 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.
