The Smear - How Shady Political Operatives And Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, And How You Vote (Paperback):... The Smear - How Shady Political Operatives And Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, And How You Vote (Paperback)
Sharyl Attkisson
R265 R209 Discovery Miles 2 090 Save R56 (21%) In stock

Ever wonder how politics turned into a take-no-prisoners blood sport? The New York Times bestselling author of Stonewalled pulls back the curtain on the shady world of opposition research and reveals the dirty tricks those in power use to influence your opinions.

Behind most major political stories in the modern era, there is an agenda; an effort by opposition researchers, spin doctors, and outside interests to destroy an idea or a person. The tactic they use is the Smear. Every day, Americans are influenced by the Smear without knowing it. Paid forces cleverly shape virtually every image you cross. Maybe you read that Donald Trump is a racist misogynist, or saw someone on the news mocking the Bernie Sanders campaign. The trick of the Smear is that it is often based on some shred of truth, but these media-driven "hit pieces" are designed to obscure the truth. Success hinges on the Smear artist’s ability to remain invisible; to make it seem as if their work is neither calculated nor scripted. It must appear to be precisely what it is not.

Veteran journalist Sharyl Attkisson has witnessed this practice firsthand. After years of being pitched hit jobs and puff pieces, she’s an expert at detecting Smear campaigns. Now, the hard-hitting investigative reporter shares her inside knowledge, revealing how the Smear takes shape and who its perpetrators are—including Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and, most influential of all, "right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin" (National Review) political operative David Brock and his Media Matters for America empire.

Attkisson exposes the diabolical tactics of Smear artists, and their outrageous access to the biggest names in political media—operatives who are corrupting the political process, and discouraging widespread citizen involvement in our democracy.

"A story is a living thing." So begins "Way of the Screenwriter, " a book with a novel, refreshing approach to the long-practiced art of screenwriting. Amnon Buchbinder brilliantly reinterprets screenwriting as a way for writers to capture a story's essence, thus giving it greater meaning and fascination for the audience. Full of practical examples and exercises to enhance the skills of both beginning and experienced screenwriters, the guide is far more than a how-to book. It is a comprehensive work that covers screenwriting from virtually every conceivable angle, while also offering a different, compelling approach. It is a book that illuminates the why behind the how and points the way toward a deeper understanding of how stories work on the screen. Perhaps most importantly, "Way of the Screenwriter" treats screenwriting not as some disreputable task, but rather as the fine art it is: the convergence of storytelling, writing, and filmmaking.

The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say. F. Scott Fitzgerald

Entering university can be challenging and confusing for new students as they encounter large first-year classes and demanding independent study responsibilities for the first time. Writing English with style provides essential skills for university success by honing writing, reading, researching and studying competencies. Writing English with style is has been upgraded and expanded, addressing new areas such as listening and note taking skills and the Chicago Manual of Style referencing system.

Each chapter has been revamped to provide more helpful examples and workable assignments to aid the reader in applying the skills acquired.

Writing English with style is aimed at first-year college students, but will be equally valuable to the final year or postgraduate second language speaker.
