It's 1946 and in a city that doesn't even know its name, crime lurks amongst the rats in every rainy alley, and it's up to detective Stark Raving to rub it out. As he fights the forces of darkness through a haze of scotch and regret, Raving comes face to face with his demons and his own gruesome death at the hands of the nastiest, stabbiest crime lord in the country. "Dead dames, blonde bombshells, gumshoes, and roscoes-Brand and Hart deliver the goods in this hilarious satirical parody of the golden age of pulp fiction." - Dashiell Chandler Spillane "The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places. But not Brand and Hart. They are just broken." - Ernest P. Hemingway "If James Patterson went insane and wrote a manuscript in feces on the wall of his cell, this would be the book." - Effing Scott Fitzgerald
"Limiting access, limiting information to cover the backsides of those who are in charge of the war, is extremely dangerous and cannot and should not be accepted. And I am sorry to say that, up to and including the moment of this interview, that overwhelmingly it has been accepted by the American people. And the current administration revels in that, and they take refuge in that." --CBS News Anchor Dan Rather on BBC News Night, May 16, 2002 In Media Wars: News at a Time of Terror, MediaChannel founder and editor, Danny Schechter, "the News Dissector," critically examines media coverage since 9/11. Schechter analyzes what has been covered and, more tellingly, left out, in news coverage of the terrorist attacks and their aftermath. Drawing from the reporting of over one thousand worldwide radio, newspaper, television, and internet affiliates, the result is a scathing account of how the media has become a megaphone for the U.S. military and its war on terror. More than just a critique, Schechter suggests a series of changes to improve our news sources and return them to the vital role a free and independent press must play to preserve a democracy. Media Wars is a timely assessment of what we are and are not being told in the most important story of our new century.
