From Most people who hit the top of the bestseller lists with their first book would enjoy their success, but Goldberg (Bias) would rather grouse about how little media attention he got and how even his new publisher (he was previously with Regnery) doesn't understand why liberal bias in journalism is a "crucial" issue. His analysis of the media's "leftward" slant in coverage of social issues, buttressed by his own experiences as a CBS News correspondent and tales from anonymous colleagues, is not without its persuasive qualities, though undermined by rather obvious deck-stacking, condescension toward opposing viewpoints and intermittent outrageousness. He also drops hints about how news organizations bully interviewees to eliminate anything that might contradict what they broadcast an act of arrogance transcending ideological lines but quickly drops that story in favor of more liberal-bashing. And despite his admonition to media professionals to "stop taking [criticism] personally," Goldberg repeatedly makes it personal, taking shots at Barbara Walters, for example, or accusing New York Times columnist Frank Rich of attacking him as a favor to a college classmate. That's only a fraction of his complaints against what he sees as the paper of record's ideological stance, which he considers both far more pervasive and more important than the Jayson Blair scandal. (Nor, he says, is it a new problem, recycling criticisms of Stalin-era Moscow correspondent Walter Duranty that have recently gained favor among mainstream analysts.) Goldberg isn't just a lone voice in the wilderness, either, as interviews with Bob Costas and Tim Russert offer supporting perspectives. Still, this is pure, unadulterated Goldberg, with precisely the same combination of insider knowledge and righteous indignation that made him a hit the first time around ¬ Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Product DescriptionA New York Times BestsellerA Conservative Book Club Main SelectionA Book-of-the-Month Club Alternate Selection In his #1 New York Times bestseller, Bias, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg created a national firestorm when he exposed the liberal biases of the so-called mainstream media. Now, in Arrogance, Goldberg punctures the bubble in which the media elites live and work, a culture of denial where contrary views are not welcome. Bias identified the problem. Arrogance offers a solution.. Large Print Edition. Hardcover. Good+., Thorndike Press, 2004, Atria, 2009. Atria 2009 A D V A N C E R E A D E R' S Edition Fine/ SOFTCOVER. Prerelease version. Red wraps. From The Washington PostFrom The Washington Post's World/washingtonpost Reviewed by ADVENTURE Being swept under by an avalanche is its own special hell. "A person caught in an avalanche is not floating in a wave but pounded in relentless surf, shaken like prey in the teeth of the mountain," writes Jennifer Woodlief in this chronicle of the March 31, 1982, avalanche near Lake Tahoe that killed seven and injured many more. The victim is often undone by the act of breathing itself, since exhaled air "will initially melt the snow but then it will freeze," she explains, creating a seal of ice around the mouth. Unearthing someone quickly from this deadly cocoon is key: The chances that a person will be found alive 35 minutes after an avalanche are 30 percent, Woodlief reports; after two hours, they drop to around 3 percent. In early April 1982, rescuers at Alpine Meadows ski area beat those odds when, with the help of a particularly alert dog, they saved Anna Conrad, a ski-lift operator who had spent nearly five days in a small air pocket amid the debris of a destroyed building. (Conrad lost part of her left foot and a portion of her right leg to frostbite but continues to ski and is now an advocate for disabled athletes.) Her dramatic rescue, and the avalanche that necessitated it, are at the heart of "A Wall of White," but unfortunately, the action doesn't break until more than halfway through the book. That makes for a lot of anticipation. Woodlief, a former CIA case officer and the author of a biography of skier Bill Johnson, does an admirable job of building the tension by recreating the lives of those affected by the avalanche, but these stories are no match for the forces of nature that changed those lives forever. 2009, The Washington Post. All Rights Reserved. From Booklist*Starred Review* In 1982, an avalanche at a ski resort near Lake Tahoe took the lives of seven people. In the middle of the devastation (millions of pounds of snow steamrolled over the resort), one woman was trapped under the snow, and a team of ski patrolmen worked for five days toher. The author tells two stories here—one in broad strokes, the other in precise detail. Her description of the avalanche itself is vivid and visually compelling, as though she were describing scenes from a big-screen disaster movie. On the other hand, the story of Larry Heywood and his ski patrol team, risking their lives to save a buried woman, is a story of life, death, and heroism, told in a close-up, personal style that puts us right there beside the rescuers. The is a triumph of storytelling, of capturing a small human drama in the midst of a massive natural disaster. Books of this nature are automatically compared to the works of Sebastian Junger and Jon Krakauer, but in this case the comparison is apt: Woodlief tells a true story that is compelling, dramatic, and haunting..

Not Quite the Diplomat - neues Buch

2005, ISBN: 9780141021447

ID: 1f4ff9411425f4e3bb7c67085de963b9

Describes what has been happening in Britain, Europe and the world since 1997. This book explores the questions: will the British still be trying to work out who we are and what we want to be as the world moves on? Does the Western alliance still have the time and the will to shape the world before the rise of India and China? And more. Part memoir, part remedy for the state we're in, with liberal sprinklings of common sense, Chris Patten's Not Quite the Diplomat is a frank and funny book from a very outspoken politician. After spending several years in the thick of international events, Chris Patten has seen rather a lot of the world - and the people who run it. And now he's free from the bonds of diplomacy, he doesn't have to be quite so careful about what he says. Here he gives us his forthright views on everything from the Tories' downfall to America's empire, from whether Blair has any political convictions to why Britain should start liking the French.
