CBS Views the Press ranks as one of the most important radio programs in U.S. journalism history. The pet project of Edward R. Murrow, Don Hollenbeck?s fifteen-minute program aired weekly over WCBS in New York City from 1947 to 1950 and won a Peabody, a George Polk and other major journalism awards. The provocative program was broadcasting?s Declaration of Independence from newspapers?the first time a network dared trade roles with the powerful press to become the critic of newspapers, not merely the subject of newspapers? criticism. Radio?s Revolution brings together twenty historically significant transcripts of CBS Views the Press, with Loren Ghiglione providing the historical context and insight into Hollenbeck?s approach. ø Hollenbeck tackled the toughest topics, from racism to McCarthyism, and many in the media applauded his conscience and courage. But powerful New York newspapers, including William Randolph Hearst?s flagship Journal-American, attacked Hollenbeck?s program as pro-Communist and anticonservative. In 1954 Hollenbeck got caught in the middle of the televised confrontation between CBS?s Murrow and Senator Joe McCarthy. Still under assault by Hearst columnists, separated from his third wife, worried about losing his job at CBS, and suffering from alcoholism and depression, Hollenbeck killed himself.

Alan Turing, Enigma ist die Biographie des legendären britischen Mathematikers, Logikers, Kryptoanalytikers und Computerkonstrukteurs Alan Mathison Turing (1912-1954). Turing war einer der bedeutendsten Mathematiker dieses Jahrhunderts und eine höchst exzentrische Persönlichkeit. Er gilt seit seiner 1937 erschienenen Arbeit "On Computable Numbers", in der er das Prinzip des abstrakten Universalrechners entwickelte, als der Erfinder des Computers. Er legte auch die Grundlagen für das heute "Künstliche Intelligenz" genannte Forschungsgebiet. Turings zentrale Frage "Kann eine Maschine denken?" war das Motiv seiner Arbeit und wird die Schlüsselfrage des Umgangs mit dem Computer werden. Die bis 1975 geheimgehaltene Tätigkeit Turings für den britischen Geheimdienst, die zur Entschlüsselung des deutschen Funkverkehrs führte, trug entscheidend zum Verlauf und Ausgang des Zweiten Weltkriegs bei.

Unterwegs in den Krisengebieten der Welt – wie gehen Menschen mit Krieg und Gewalt um, was verändert sich angesichts des fremden Leids im Berichterstatter, welche Rolle kommt dem Zeugen zu? Carolin Emcke schreibt in ihren Briefen von Orten, die aus dem Blickfeld der Medien geraten sind, obwohl Krieg und Leid dort andauern: vom endlosen Bürgerkrieg in Kolumbien, von der Sklavenarbeit in den Freihandelszonen Nicaraguas, vom Überlebenskampf der Straßenkinder in der Kanalisation von Bukarest, von den serbischen Massakern an Kosovo-Albanern und den Vergeltungsanschlägen an Serben, dem Anschlag auf das World Trade Center am 11. September und den Kriegen in Afghanistan und im Irak. »Das Werk von Carolin Emcke wird Vorbild für gesellschaftliches Handeln in einer Zeit, in der politische, religiöse und kulturelle Konflikte den Dialog oft nicht mehr zulassen ... ihr Werk mahnt, dass wir uns dieser Aufgabe stellen müssen.« Begründung des Stiftungsrats zur Verleihung des Friedenspreises des Deutschen Buchhandels 2016

Writing as Craft and Magic, Second Edition, outlines a compelling approach to conceiving, reporting, organizing, and writing articles for today's media. The book revolves around the central idea that writers improve most quickly by combining the powers of technique ("craft") with creativity ("magic"). Applying this method to news and feature writing--both print and online--it focuses on leads, organization, transition, clarity, drama, and other elements that drive good writing toward excellence. Aimed at students in upper-level undergraduate writing and reporting courses, Writing as Craft and Magic provides a clear and succinct instructional system--with practical models, a wealth of examples, and step-by-step guides--to help students understand and apply craft and magic to daily assignments. Author Carl Sessions Stepp, a seasoned journalist at the national level, structures his system in three parts. He first evokes the art of writing, then applies that art to standard journalistic writing, and concludes with a strong section on advanced writing techniques for features. He also offers advice and tips on how newsrooms currently operate in the age of multimedia journalism. This revised edition includes an expanded exercise section at the end of each chapter, more coverage of the demands of multimedia journalism (convergence), and updated chapters on incorporating the Internet into research and writing for the daily news cycle.
