News war( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Secrets, Sources & Spin Part 1 examines the political and legal forces challenging the mainstream news media today and press reactions. The film looks at the debates over the role of journalism; the relationship between the Bush administration and the press; the controversies surrounding the use of anonymous sources in reporting; and the unintended consequences of the Valerie Plame investigation -- a confusing, ugly affair that ultimately damaged the legal protections reporters' thought they enjoyed under the First Amendment. Part 2 continues with the legal jeopardy faced by a number of reporters across the country, and the complications generated by the war on terror. Many reporters face jail for refusing to reveal sources in the context of leak investigations, while editors of the nation's leading newspapers now confront the question of how much can the press reveal about secret government programs in that war without jeopardizing national security? In What's Happening to the News (Pt. 3), network executives, journalists, Wall Street analysts, bloggers, and key players at Google and Yahoo! explain the battle for survival in a rapidly changing world. The embattled Los Angeles Times, one of the last remaining papers in the country still covering major national stories, is profiled. The Frontline/World (4th) segment focuses on two stories. The first is on new Arab media and its role in both mitigating and exacerbating the clash between the West and Islam. Al Jazeera has changed the face of a parochial and tightly controlled Arab media, and this hour explores Al Jazeera's growing influence around the world. The second is a video essay on journalists worldwide, which details how in many countries the press has been suppressed, and journalists have been jailed, exiled, and murdered

Ho Chi Minh by Greg Barker( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Vietnam, one of the last communist nations, Ho Chi Minh remains the father figure for the nation. For many in the West there remains a fascination with Uncle Ho, the frail, idealistic leader who against seemingly insurmountable odds humiliated two of the world s strongest armies, the American and the French. This film, based on newsreel footage and interviews with contemporaries, traces the story of his life. Born into a Mandarin family in 1890 when Indochina was part of the French empire, he gravitated towards Paris like many in his generation. There he founded the Indochinese Communist Party, calling for an independent Indochina composed of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. The following years were spent between Russia and Asia where he learned guerrilla warfare from Mao Tse Tung. His big chance came during World War II when the Japanese occupied Indochina. The film goes on to show how his army, the Viet Minh, drove them out and then went on to fight the French for control of the country. Independence for North Vietnam was achieved with the defeat of the French at Dien Bien Phu. He never lived to see the victory over the Americans or the unification of Vietnam

Rwanda was supposed to be easy.Ten years ago, when the United Nations sent peacekeepers to this small, Central African nation -- with the full support of the U.S. government -- most of the policy-makers involved believed it would be a straightforward mission that would help restore the U.N.'s battered reputation after failures in Bosnia and Somalia. Few could imagine that, a decade later, Rwanda would be the crisis that still haunts their souls."Ghosts of Rwanda," a special two-hour documentary to mark the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide -- a state-sponsored massacre in which some 800,000 Rwandans were methodically hunted down and murdered by Hutu extremists as the U.S. and international community refused to intervene -- examines the social, political, and diplomatic failures that converged to enable the genocide to occur
