Exit Interview

David Westin

Exit Interview by David Westin

When David Westin became president of ABC News in March 1997, the division was treading water. "It looked like all the really important news was behind us," he writes. Hardly. For the next thirteen years, Westin would preside over ABC News during some of the most important and perplexing events in its history:

• President Clinton's impeachment

• The tied 2000 presidential election

• The 9/11 attacks

• Conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan

• The swift boat smear campaign against Senator John Kerry

Exit Interview is a behind-the-scenes look at Westin's tenure and the major news that marked it. He takes...

Inside The Founding Of Newsweek: How a Hot-Tempered, One-Legged R.A.F. Pilot Launched an American Media Giant

Thomas J. C. Martyn

Inside The Founding Of Newsweek: How a Hot-Tempered, One-Legged R.A.F. Pilot Launched an American Media Giant by Thomas J. C. MartynA former wartime pilot and Time magazine's first foreign editor, Thomas J. C. Martyn had a vision: to establish a weekly news magazine that would rival Time, which in the 1930s was the only magazine of its kind in the United States. Martyn succeeded--so resoundingly that Newsweek has prospered for over 80 years, first as a stalwart of print media and now in the digital era, as well. Newsweek was Martyn's brainchild, brought to life through his own perseverance and ingenuity. In this memoir he draws a vivid picture of his efforts to get Newsweek off the ground including his meetings with powerful...

Somersaults: Rovings, Tears & Absurdities - A Memoir from the Fringe of Journalism

J. J. Hespeler-Boultbee

Somersaults: Rovings, Tears & Absurdities - A Memoir from the Fringe of Journalism by J. J. Hespeler-Boultbee

Born in Vancouver, the author of this unusual memoir initially attended school in Australia. Getting to Australia was one thing - getting back to North America in the middle of World War II, aged now seven, was a different kettle of fish. He and the nuclear family of which he was the smallest part sailed from Sydney aboard the S.S. President Grant, which soon necessitated a hair-raising escape across the South Pacific to avoid prowling Japanese submarines intent on sinking a ship that bore the name of such an illustrious American president. Provisions exhausted, the ship's complement was obliged...

I Was Rupert Murdoch's Figleaf

John Bull

I Was Rupert Murdoch's Figleaf by John BullA pale ray of sunlight seeps through a dusty stained glass window to light a shabby congregation - all kneeling, eyes closed in devout prayer: "Thank you, Lord. Thank you for saving us." The scene is a Fleet Street pub at lunchtime - and, as yet, hardly a drop's been touched. I stand up, cross myself, dust the knees of my corduroy trousers and reach to take a grateful sip of my pint of London Pride. All around me my fellow workers are rising from their knees: men - and a few women - all known to the world as penny liars, scribbling scum, foot-in-the-door merchants, callous bastards, and reptiles....

Drinking with Miss Dutchie: A Memoir

Ed Breslin

Drinking with Miss Dutchie: A Memoir by Ed Breslin

Drinking with Miss Dutchie is a story about Dutchie, a Black Labrador, and her lasting impact on the life of her owner and narrator, Ed Breslin. In contrast to the typical tale of dog as man's best friend, Breslin's is a unique reflection on dog as role model and teacher. While the author struggles with clinical depression and addiction, Dutchie maintains her pure lust for life. Over twelve years, she masterfully and instinctively shows Breslin how to view the world for what it is - and embrace it with full force.

Raised in North Philadelphia, the second oldest of twelve children in an Irish...

American Radical: The Life and Times of I. F. Stone by D. D. Guttenplan

Popular Front columnist and New Deal propagandist. Fearless opponent of McCarthyism and feared scourge of official liars. Enterprising, independent reporter and avid amateur classicist. As D.D. Guttenplan puts it in his compelling book, I.F. Stone did what few in his profession could--he always thought for himself. America's most celebrated investigative journalist himself remains something of a mystery, however. Born Isidor Feinstein in Philadelphia, raised in rural New Jersey, by the age of 25 this college drop-out was already an influential newsman, and enjoying extraordinary access to key...

Restless Genius: Barney Kilgore, The Wall Street Journal, and the Invention of Modern Journalism

Restless Genius: Barney Kilgore, The Wall Street Journal, and the Invention of Modern Journalism by Richard J. Tofel

The story of the man who transformed The Wall Street Journal and modern media

In 1929, Barney Kilgore, fresh from college in small-town Indiana, took a sleepy, near bankrupt New York financial paper--The Wall Street Journal--and turned it into a thriving national newspaper that eventually was worth $5 billion to Rupert Murdoch. Kilgore then invented a national weekly newspaper that was a precursor of many trends we see playing out in journalism now.

Tofel brings this story of a little-known pioneer to life using many previously uncollected newspaper writings by Kilgore and a treasure trove of...

The Spiders of Allah: Travels of an Unbeliever on the Frontline of Holy War

James Hider

The Spiders of Allah: Travels of an Unbeliever on the Frontline of Holy War by James Hider

In his fascinating, terrifying and often very funny book, James Hider takes his doubts about religious beliefs straight into the dark heart of the world's holy wars—from Israel to Gaza to Iraq—the birthplace that spawned so many faiths—and then back to Jerusalem. From hardcore Zionist settlers still fighting ancient Biblical battles in the hills of the West Bank to Shiite death squads roaming the lawless streets of Iraq in the aftermath of Saddam; whether it's the misappropriation and martyrdom of Mickey Mouse by Gaza's Islamists, or a US president acting on God's orders, Hider sees the hallucinatory...
