Takes place in the 1950's America, during the early days of broadcast journalism. It chronicles the real-life conflict between television newsman Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee. With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, Murrow, and his dedicated staff - headed by his producer Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS newsroom - defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongering tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his communist 'witch-hunts'. A very public feud develops when the Senator responds by accusing the anchor of being a communist. In this climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS crew carries on and their tenacity will prove historic and monumental

"Mention Al Jazeera three years ago and you'd likely get blank stares from most Americans; now the name of the Arab world's most popular news outlet is well known for its reporting of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for American television's nearly obsessive coverage of that reporting. Charting the struggles of Al Jazeera, CNN, and other journalists to cover, or create, news, Control Room takes audiences inside the war in Iraq, or at least the buildings where it was presented--like Al Jazeera headquarters, as well as U.S. Central Command, site of the war's most important battles: the press conferences. Egyptian American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim (Startup.com) highlights the passion and intelligence of individuals on all sides, following not only the reporters hoping to cover the war, but the U.S. military officers anxious to control that coverage. For the journalists of Al Jazeera, the problem is twofold: getting information from an increasingly oppositional American military and then dealing with the fact that their network is suddenly 'news' itself. Featuring fascinating interviews with Al Jazeera and American journalists, as well as with U.S. commanders, this is not only a proverbial behind-the-scenes look at the Iraq War, but a laying bare of the hidden battle for the real 'enduring freedom': to cover a war without being controlled"--Pacific Film Archive program note

Guerrilla : the taking of Patty Hearst( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In today's new and scarier age of terrorism, the actions of a small collection of mixed-race, largely middle-class radical leftists fighting against the Vietnam War, racism, and other social ills in the 1970's seem emblematic of the cultural chaos of the era, nothing more. The event of 1974 occurred when a group calling themselves the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped19-year-old newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst in Berkeley, California. The crime received nearly round-the-clock coverage, and made the SLA into counterculture superstars. There are gaps in the story but the film contains rare and long unseen newsreel footage, interviews with two SLA members, and offers a fascinating portrait of not only a kind of psychopathic idealism but also a whole era of extraordinary social turmoil
