News war ( visu )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 510 libraries worldwide
Secrets, Sources & Spin Part 1 examines the political and legal forces challenging the mainstream news media today and press reactions. The film looks at the debates over the role of journalism; the relationship between the Bush administration and the press; the controversies surrounding the use of anonymous sources in reporting; and the unintended consequences of the Valerie Plame investigation -- a confusing, ugly affair that ultimately damaged the legal protections reporters' thought they enjoyed under the First Amendment. Part 2 continues with the legal jeopardy faced by a number of reporters across the country, and the complications generated by the war on terror. Many reporters face jail for refusing to reveal sources in the context of leak investigations, while editors of the nation's leading newspapers now confront the question of how much can the press reveal about secret government programs in that war without jeopardizing national security? In What's Happening to the News (Pt. 3), network executives, journalists, Wall Street analysts, bloggers, and key players at Google and Yahoo! explain the battle for survival in a rapidly changing world. The embattled Los Angeles Times, one of the last remaining papers in the country still covering major national stories, is profiled. The Frontline/World (4th) segment focuses on two stories. The first is on new Arab media and its role in both mitigating and exacerbating the clash between the West and Islam. Al Jazeera has changed the face of a parochial and tightly controlled Arab media, and this hour explores Al Jazeera's growing influence around the world. The second is a video essay on journalists worldwide, which details how in many countries the press has been suppressed, and journalists have been jailed, exiled, and murdered

Frontline ( visu )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
Every year, Salmonella causes more hospitalizations and deaths than any other foodborne illness, with about one in four pieces of raw chicken contaminated with Salmonella today. Why isn't the U.S. food safety system stopping the threat? Correspondent David E. Hoffman investigates how and why the standards and laws around Salmonella have failed to keep up with the increasing danger posed by some strains of the bacteria. The film looks closely at the largest Salmonella poultry outbreak in history, when more than 600 people were sickened over 16 months. Delving into the complex world of food safety, through interviews with local and national public health officials, as well as victims and a top-level poultry industry executive, the film reveals the discrepancies that exist when it comes to foodborne bacteria-contrasting how regulators cracked down hard on E. coli 0157 in raw beef and banned it outright after a deadly outbreak at Jack-in-the-Box two decades ago, but have not taken such decisive action with dangerous kinds of Salmonella, leaving consumers to protect themselves

Outlawed in Pakistan ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 187 libraries worldwide
When Pakistani teenager Kainat Soomro accused four men of gang rape, the courageous young woman did not put her suffering behind her. For this documentary, which premiered at Sundance, filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent five years tracing both Kainat's odyssey through Pakistan's broken justice system-and her alleged rapists' quest to clear their names. The result is a powerful and nuanced profile of courage in a society where rape victims and their families are often considered dishonorable and subjected to humiliation, poverty, and mortal danger. Film contains mature content and may not be suitable for all viewers. (56 minutes)
The fish on my plate : a journey with Paul Greenberg ( visu )
4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
"'What fish should I eat that's good for me and good for the planet?' That's the question bestselling author and lifelong fisherman Paul Greenberg (Four Fish; American Catch) sets out to answer in The Fish On My Plate. As part of his quest to investigate the health of the ocean--and his own--Greenberg spends a year eating seafood at breakfast, lunch and dinner, eating over 700 fish meals in hopes of improving his health through a dramatic increase in his omega-3 levels. With people worldwide consuming more seafood than ever, Greenberg also explores questions of sustainability and overfishing, traveling to Norway, where modern fish farming was invented; Peru to witness the world's largest wild fishery; Alaska, where 200 million salmon can be caught each year; and Connecticut, to visit a sustainable ocean farming pioneer who is trying to transform the fishing industry. The Fish On My Plate isn't just the story of one man's journey. It's a must-watch documentary for any consumer who cares about both his or her own health and the health of the planet"--Container
