5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT companion to the film
A True work of art by Tim Robbins. The amount of work and attention to detail is boldly shown by both the film and this book. Robbins not only provides the viewer with background,facts and explains some of the metaphors one may not have caught otherwise, but also includes the full script!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great companion to the movie
I got this after falling in love with the movie Cradle Will Rock, and it did not fail to amaze me!It balances a script with so much historical information to back it up, insights, and pictures both from the movie and the real moments of Cradle Will Rock.It has informational blurbs about Marc Blitzstein: Composer and Enigma, Orson Welles, Hallie Flanagan, Christopher Marlowe and the questioning of him being a communist, the real Olive Stanton, the death of Vaudeville, Diego Rivera, and so many other things.It also has great pictures from the film, including some candid shots.I used it as a source on my paper on the Federal Theatre Project, it's an excellent source of historical information, but it's also very entertaining to read!The day I got it I spent hours going through it.It's well worth the money, my favorite coffee table book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo!
This book includes movie script, many photos and the historical notes about the U.S. in 1930s.

The main plot is as follows: In the age of the Great Depression, the Federal Theater Project gave many U.S. people encouraging entertainment, and gave many actors and artists their jobs. The movement gave birth to Marc Blitzstein's masterpiece 'Cradle Will Rock' (directed by Orson Welles), but the play offended the reactionary congressmen. They made their soldiers lock out the theater. 'Cradle Will Rock,' can't the play see the light? Or...

In addition, the movie has the clash between Diego Rivera and Nelson Rockfeller over the Rockfeller Center's mural, etc. And the book has the detailed background notes of the movie. They are a great help for me. For example, I thought red-hunting movement was made by the Republicans, but it's my misunderstanding. And I learn that Harlem Renaissance (I like Zora Neale Hurston) wasn't an isolated and mutant movement. Etc, etc.

The movie and the book represent artists' courage. In the afterword, Tim Robbins says 'I believe threre are already too many artists who censor themselves.' I, too, think so. Bravo, Tim and his comrades ('gangs'?)! A toast to your brilliance, effort and bravery!

4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely companion to the movie.
The book is lovely, it includes the script, a foreward by Paul Newman, wonderful photos and historical background.A must have for fans of the movie.However, the hardcover version of this book has only 150 pages(including the index) not 208 as advertised, so you are getting more than aquarter less book for your money. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible

Well my experience was terrible.I ordered the book, got charged and waited almost a month.I got a request for my comments, before even getting the book.After I submitted the survey comments, I get an email stating the book was damaged and it would not be shipped--sorry.Well at this point, I am still waiting for a credit, fell behind in my class and overall I will not use Green Earth/Amazon in the future if there is another company to use.

The only positive out of the whole experience, is I keep getting emails asking for my comments.I give them for what it's worth.

3-0 out of 5 stars good overview
This book is a good intro to organizational behavior. It doesn't cover any topic in depth (and some parts feel intuitive), but gets the job done for class. 12th edition is a bit behind the times; I've never used the CD-rom included.

I purchased the product with the understanding it was the 12th edition as it says in the picture.The book that I received was the 9th edition.When I contacted them they said that they thought it was the 12th.I kept the book for my class as some of the information was still relevant.I will never purchase from this person again.

I appreciated the quality of the book I ordered.The seller packaged in cardboard rather than a flimsy envelope, so the paperback spine was not destroyed through shipping.The book looked like it had been read once over, with no markings/highlights.I got this book after shipping for under $10, when it would've cost me $90 to buy it used at the campus bookstore.Deal!

Product Description
How American media are failing our democracy, by the authors Bill Moyers calls "the Paul Revere and Tom Paine of our time."

"As this book makes clear, the problem is deeper than the administration or the right-wing echo chamber…the very structure of our conglomerated media system conspires against real journalism and, hence, against truth."—Tim Robbins, from the Foreword

Thomas Frank called Tragedy & Farce "an appeal to reason in a dark time. " Including the sharpest analysis of 2004 election coverage yet and the first detailed look at the burgeoning media reform movement, this book is both an exposé and a call to action. In it John Nichols and Robert McChesney—two of the country's leading media analysts—argue that during the 2004 election and throughout the Iraq war and occupation, Americans have been starved of democracy's oxygen: accurate information. More than anything John Kerry, George Bush, or even Karl Rove did, the media's mis-coverage of the campaign and war decided the election. Most disturbingly, the flawed coverage reflects new, structural problems within U.S. journalism.

Tragedy and Farce dissects the media failures of recent years and show how they expose the decline in resources and standards for political journalism—as well as the methodical campaign by the political right to control the news cycle. In our highly concentrated media system it has become commercially and politically irrational to do the kind of journalism a self-governing society requires. 10 b/w illustrations. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Tragedy and Farce: How the American Media Sell Wars, Spin Elections, and Destroy Democracy

5-0 out of 5 stars A national disgrace
The war is a tragedy and the media coverage of the 2004 presidential election was a farce.That is part of what Nichols and McChesney are telling us in this very readable and important book.More saliently they warn that unless the media reassumes its responsibility to tell the truth about how our government operates and about what it is doing that it hides from us, there is a danger that our democracy will be destroyed.

I have been hearing the lie about the "liberal bias" of the press for as long as I can remember.It is a lie told and retold, screamed and ranted about by the actual media powers that be, those who work for Sinclair Broadcasting, Clear Channel, Fox News--the entire Murdoch empire and more--the O'Reilly's, the Limbaugh's, the Ollie North's, the Scarborough's, the Beck's, the evangelical demagogues, the shrill shock jocks of AM radio, the editorial writers at the Wall Street Journal, and even some people working for the New York Times and the Washington Post.Behind these voices of deception are the conservative and controlling owners of our media and their corporate sponsors, people who merely want to massage and indoctrinate the populous into compliant couch potatoes who will buy their products and hail to the chief and not rock the boat.

Recently there have been a slew of books belatedly exposing this lie.Tragedy and Farce is yet another such tome, but in some ways it is among the best of the bunch.Nichols and McChesney take a historical perspective, showing how journalism has gone from 19th century Hearst jingoism to an eclectic array of publications in the heyday of the American press in the early 20th century to the docile and sycophantic reporters who work for today's mass media.An important and at times laugh out loud funny part of the book are the cartoons by Tom Tomorrow.His insightful satire and parody of our political elites and media mavens nicely complement the text.

But do Nichols and McChesney go far enough?They assert there is "a crisis in journalism" and they point to the recent consolidation of media, to the monopolistic franchises and subsidies that some media enjoy (p. 173) thanks to their financial, editorial, and news spin support of various politicians, especially those in the Bush Administration.They warn that "big media plays a well-marked role in defining the choices from which America's two major parties select their nominees for president." (p. 91) And they remind us that so tight is that media control that no third party candidate has more than a remote chance of ever becoming president.But what I would say is replace "big media" in the quote with "corporate America" and change "well-marked role" to "absolutely controlling role" and we are closer to the awful truth.

The plain fact is that we have a democracy by capitalism in this country, that there is no chance for any candidate to achieve the highest office who is not in the pocket of, and whose mind is not to some extent controlled by, the corporate structure that actually runs America.Big media is only one branch, albeit an essential one, of that structure.Until the mass media is non-commercial nothing will change.How could it?How can the average reporter go against the hand that feeds him or her?The authors note what happened to Phil Donahue at MSNBC when he "represented a difficult public face for NBC in a time of war." (p. 86)He was cancelled.If Donahue cannot go against his bosses how can we expect the reporter on the beat to write what he knows Murdoch or the corporate sponsors do not want to hear?

Apropos is this delicious quote from Theodore Dreiser: "The American press, with very few exceptions, is a kept press.Kept by the big corporations the way a whore is kept by a rich man."(p. 93)

The worst of all the big offenders of course is Fox News and their Orwellian "fair and balanced" slogan.Yes, ignorance really is strength (that is, the ignorance of the populous) and the bigger the lie the better.Noting that Fox News was "actually more gung-ho in its support of the war than US government entities like Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty" the authors quote Russ Baker as saying that the Fox News Channel is "a kind of Gong Show of propaganda." (p. 86) (Yeah, but not nearly as funny.)

The authors call "repugnant" the notion that "the great unwashed mass needs to be bathed in a cocktail of propaganda and lies, decontextualized half-truths, and jingoism..." (pp. 85-86) But what is even more insightful is to realize that in creating a compliant, ignorant, indoctrinated and sloganized electorate, the last thing you want is for them to be told the unpleasant truth, and so you have to lie.Having created the sheep, you don't want to apprise them of the wolves, the shearing, or the slaughterhouse.

One final quote: "The years of the Bush presidency will be remembered as a time when American media, for the most part, practiced stenography to power..." (p. 84)

Read this book, by all means, and work toward the de-commercialization of media because only when those who have the responsibility and privilege of addressing mass audiences are free to tell the truth will we as a people be free.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by Book
I was disappointed by this book.

While generally sympathetic to its conclusions, I was expecting a systematic examination of exactly what the title purported to promise, namely, "How the American Media Sell Wars..."

Instead what I got was a broad hodge-podge of sweeping statements that oftentimes read like a blog post -- of over two hundred pages.

The authors seem to realize this when at the conclusion of the critical 2nd Chapter titled "The Crisis in Journalism", they write:

"We concede that this has been a sweeping discussion of journalism, and we have had to use broad brush strokes.We believe our core argument survives more detailed examination, and it would certainly be qualified and enriched by more detail and nuance." (p.35)

This level of examination doesn't stop them in the very next chapter from "drawing upon the foundation laid in chapter 2" as if sweeping assertions in one chapter could support sweeping assertions in the next without ever having to come back down to planet earth to have a closer look.

The book is completely riddled with un-sourced and undocumented conclusions which you either agree with or not but which the authors simply announce without bothering to prove.

The situation in newsrooms "is not unlike the newsroom in Pravda or Tass in the old Soviet Union" (p.32).Media coverage of Colin Powell's speech at the UN "could not have been exceeded by Stalin's stooges" (p.59).While all of this sounds great, you're entitled to wonder in a book that places so much emphasis on journalistic standards what exactly the authors know about Pravda, Tass or "Stalin's stooges".

In sum, this isn't a book that's particularly strong from a journalistic or research standpoint.The conclusions might make you happy but you're none the wiser as to the reasons why.The fact that magazines like The Nation, In These Times or Mother Jones haven't reviewed it also isn't a good sign.My copy is going straight into the trash.

1-0 out of 5 stars Biased, Blindly Written Piece of [...]
I thought this book would be more representative of the sensationalist reporting the media has been shoving down the throats of Americans for the last few years.Instead, this book essentially says there is not enough of this over-sensationalized baloney, and it begs that the media produce more in the name of our founding fathers.

If you dare to go there, check this out from the library.This drivel is not worth your hard earned money.

3-0 out of 5 stars Important topic, biased presentation
Most of the previous reviews give a fairly accurate description of this book.
There is less hard news and more soft news now.There is increased concentration
of media power, fewer firms with many more outlets. There are far fewer foreign
bureaus and reporters.There are more opinions presented as news. This is bad
and I agree.

The bulk of the book is examples of how the media misbehave, and that is the
weakness.Almost all the examples show a strong liberal bias. Media concentration
has been going on for decades, with much of it during Clinton's terms, but it is
all blamed on Bush(43). Most of the references to Republicans, GOP, conservatives,
media corporations, and other corporations include a negative adjective, often
"lying" or "corrupt".The media should check the claims of the right, for they
always lie.There were no calls to doubt the claims of the left. At least there
was no claim that the left never lies.But it was close.Everything the Swift
Boat Veterans said was wrong.Everything Rather said was true; the only mistake
CBS made was picking the wrong evidence to present.There is no liberal bias
in main stream media.The main stream media has a very strong conservative bias,
except for FOX which is even worse.

Even liberals that want to believe all the accusations, can not use the book as a
reference in their battles with conservatives.There is no index to find the
accusation you want to use. There is a six page bibliography, but no notes in the
text to find the source, nor notes in the bibliography to refer back to where
the information was used.

The last chapter tells how to try to correct this bad situation. It shares the
bias weakness. There are references to organizations that are working to correct
some of the media problems, such as moveon.org and FAIR. Apparently, no conservative
thinks there is any problem with the media.

The star rating is an average.The book is worth five stars for the importance of
the topic, but only one star for the presentation.There are better books about
problems with the media. There are better books about the evils of big business.
There are even better "I hate Republicans" books. ... Read more

from the script, excerpts from Hilton speaking in VO (voice over) starting at page 47

Ladies and gentlemen imagine this scenario: Man takes another man, puts him in a locked room, says to him: You're gonna die. I ain't gonna tell you when, could be tomorrow, could be in a week, but you're gonna die. Man Stays in that room, terrified, his life on a wire.

(page 48)

Hilton (VO)
Six years pass. Man comes into the room, says, you're gonna die in a week. Plead your case. In any court in the land this would be considered torture, cruel and unusual mental torture. This man that kept the other in the room would be considered a psycho, a madman. This man is the State, ladies and gentlemen.

(several compelling passages later go to page 50)
Hilton (VO)
This man is locked away for the rest of his days at Angola Prison. He's not getting out. We can protect society without imitating the very violence we seek to eliminate. Let us have dignity. Please, let us not be complicit in the butchery of another human life.

Pope John Paul II said the same when he said in modern society there is no imaginable reason, no just reason, no moral reason, for the death penalty.

I met Sister Prejean in person in Los Alamos August 2nd. She is so much more real than Susan Sarandon's portrayal, hard as nails and joyful as all daylight.

4-0 out of 5 stars well presented but too emotional
Tim Robbins presents both points of view. On the one hand he makes us feel sorry for the victims and their families but on the other hand he makes us feel sorry for the murderer himself Matt Poncelet.There is too little action but too much religious stuff in the book. But still it is a very well written book since it makes people think about the death penalty and if there is any sense for
killing a murderer. The course of the story was very realistic so you can identify with the characters.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Look Inside the Creative Process
The script of Tim Robbins' outstanding film includes footnotes that detail some of inner workings of filmmaking: why some scenes don't work, why some scenes are cut, etc. If you love the movie, certainly one of the best ofthe 1990's, check this one out, and seek out Sister Helen's original"Dead Man Walking" which inspired the movie. ...

Purchase includes a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Bob Roberts is a 1992 film written and directed by Tim Robbins. It is a satirical mockumentary, chronicling the rise of Bob Roberts, a conservative politician who is a candidate for an upcoming United States Senate election. Roberts is well financed, due mainly to past business dealings, and is well known for his music, which presents conservative ideas as rebellious. The film suggests that shady deals, hypocrisy and deceit are mainstays of US politics. The film is based on a short segment, also named Bob Roberts and featuring the same character, that Robbins did for the television sketch comedy program Saturday Night Live on December 13, 1986, and is Robbins's directorial debut. Bob Roberts takes place in Pennsylvania during the Gulf War. It depicts a fictitious senatorial race between conservative folk singer, Bob Roberts (Tim Robbins) and the incumbent Democrat, Brickley Paiste (Gore Vidal). The film is shot through the perspective of Terry Manchester (Brian Murray), a British documentary filmmaker who is following the Roberts campaign. Through his lens we see Roberts travel across the state, performing songs about drug users, lazy people and the triumph of traditional family values over the rebelliousness of the 1960s. As the campaign continues, Paiste remains in the lead until a scandal arises involving him and a young woman who was seen emerging from a car with him. Paiste claims that she was a friend of his granddaughter who he was driving home, but he cannot shake the accusations. Throughout the campaign reporter Bugs Raplin (Giancarlo Esposito) attempts to use the documentary being made about Roberts as a way to expose hi...http://booksllc.net/?id=910628 ... Read more

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Shawshank Redemption is a 1994 American drama film written and directed by Frank Darabont, based on the Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. The film stars Tim Robbins as Andrew "Andy" Dufresne and Morgan Freeman as Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding. The film portrays Andy spending nearly two decades in Shawshank State Prison, a fictional penitentiary in Maine and his friendship with Red, a fellow inmate. Despite a lukewarm box office reception that was barely enough to cover its budget, the film received favorable reviews from critics and has since enjoyed a remarkable life on cable television, VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray. This revival is reflected in its high placement on various lists of great movies, and on the Internet Movie Database it contends with The Godfather for first place. ... Read more
