The last magazine : a novel by Michael Hastings( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A posthumous debut novel--wry, wise, and outrageous--from award-winning journalist Michael Hastings, based on his experiences working for Newsweek. The year is 2002. Weekly news magazines dominate the political agenda in New York and Washington. A young journalist named Michael M. Hastings is an intern at the Magazine, wet behind the ears, the only one in the office who has actually read his coworkers' books. He will stop at nothing to turn his internship into a full-time position and has figured out just who to impress: Nishant Patel, the international editor, and Sanders Berman, managing editor--both vying for the job of editor-in-chief. While Berman and Nishant try to one-up each other pontificating on cable news, A. E. Peoria--the one reporter seemingly doing any work--is having a career crisis. He has just returned from Chad, where instead of reporting on the genocide, he was told by his editors to focus on mobile-phone outsourcing, as it's more relevant. Then suddenly, the United States invades Iraq--and all hell breaks loose. As Hastings loses his naieveté about the journalism game, he must choose where his loyalties lie: with the men at the Magazine who can advance his career or with his friend in the field who is reporting the truth
The operators : [the wild and terrifying inside story of America's war in Afghanistan] by Michael Hastings( Recording )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 2010, Michael Hastings published an article in Rolling Stone that made headlines around the world: In "The Runaway General," he reported on a week he spent in Europe with General Stanley McChrystal, the revered soldier in charge of the war in Afghanistan. McChrystal and his staff's unguarded remarks about the White House, our allies and the conduct of the war led President Obama to order McChrystal to the Oval Office, where he was fired unceremoniously. While Hastings' reporting won him a prestigious Polk award and led to two Pentagon investigations, there is much more to his story than the indiscretions of Stanley McChrystal. In "The Operators", Hastings, formerly the Baghdad bureau chief for Newsweek, takes the listener behind the diplomatic fades to paint a picture of nation-building gone awry. Hastings also takes us on patrol missions in Afghanistan, where he is embedded with American troops, and witnesses firsthand the madness, horror, and existential contradictions of Afghanistan. The Operators combines the acute reportage of a Sebastian Junger with the mad energy of a Michael Herr. It is the painful, powerful tale of a war that can never and will never be won
