The Watchdog That Didn’t Bark

The Financial Crisis and the Disappearance of Investigative Journalism

In this sweeping, incisive post mortem, Dean Starkman exposes the critical shortcomings that softened coverage in the business press during the mortgage era and the years leading up to the financial collapse of 2008. He locates the roots of the problem in the origin of business news as a market messaging service for investors in the early twentieth century. This access-dependent strain of journalism was soon opposed by the grand, sweeping work of the muckrakers. Propelled by the innovations of Bernard Kilgore, the great postwar editor of the Wall Street Journal, these two genres merged when mainstream American news organizations institutionalized muckraking in the 1960s, creating a powerful guardian of the public interest. Yet as the mortgage era dawned, deep cultural and structural shifts—some unavoidable, some self-inflicted—eroded journalism's appetite for its role as watchdog. The result was a deafening silence about systemic corruption in the financial industry. Tragically, this silence grew only more profound as the mortgage madness reached its terrible apogee from 2004 through 2006. Starkman frames his analysis in a broad argument about journalism itself, dividing the profession into two competing approaches—access reporting and accountability reporting—which rely on entirely different sources and produce radically different representations of reality. As Starkman explains, access journalism came to dominate business reporting in the 1990s, a process he calls "CNBCization," and rather than examining risky, even corrupt, corporate behavior, mainstream reporters focused on profiling executives and informing investors. Starkman concludes with a critique of the digital-news ideology and corporate influence, which threaten to further undermine investigative reporting, and he shows how financial coverage, and journalism as a whole, can reclaim its bite.

This insightful, eloquent and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture, at the University of Regina's School of Journalism. Touching on a wide range of topics from war to climate change to our ongoing constitutional crisis, these lectures have been delivered by some of Canada's leading journalists. They stand as a tribute to press freedom and the journalistic imagination in Canada. Required reading for journalists and everyone concerned about the state of the democratic process journalism informs and animates---or should ---this is a timely intervention. With media industries in crisis and the democratic craft of journalism in peril, this is also the chronicle of the reinvention of Canada, and of Canadian journalism, over the last three decades. It is an intriguing glimpse into the inner life of the press corps and an essential guide to some of the issues that must be addressed by journalists and media reform movements alike in the years ahead. is the signature for the end of a story in traditional news practice. It is believed the practice of closing with "-30-" had its roots in the age of the telegraph. In the age of typewritten copy, it indicated the last page of news copy. We designate it here as the title for our collection to acknowledge the importance of tradition, particularly the democratic tradition so deeply rooted in the profession's history. We use it also to recognize thirty years of the Minifie Lectures, the views of thirty leading journalists and a central paradox of journalism: that there is no such thing as the `final word' but that every end, every piece of filed copy provides our public dialogue with a new beginning. This insightful and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture at the University of Regina's School of Journalism. Minifie's career as a journalist began in 1929 when he joined the staff of the New York Herald Tribune becoming their Paris correspondent. He covered the Spanish Civil War and Mussolini's rise to power, and during wwn he reported on the Battle of Britain from London. Transferred to Washington, Minifie joined the Office of Strategic Services and at war's end was awarded the American Medal of Freedom for his contributions to the Allied cause. Then began Minifie's long association with the CBC as their Washington correspondent, first on radio, then on television. Throughout his career he also wrote several highly regarded books. James M. Minifie died in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1974.

Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut

Misadventures in the Counterculture

Uncensored, uncontained, and thoroughly demented, the memoirs of Paul Krassner are back in an updated and expanded edition. Paul Krassner, “father of the underground press” (People magazine), founder of the Realist, political radical, Yippie, and award-winning stand-up satirist, shares his stark raving adventures with the likes of Lenny Bruce, Abbie Hoffman, Norman Mailer, Ken Kesey, Groucho Marx, and Squeaky Fromme, revealing the patriarch of counterculture’s ultimate, intimate, uproarious life on the fringes of society. Whether he’s writing about his friendship with controversial comic Lenny Bruce, introducing Groucho Marx to LSD, his investigation of Scientology, or John Kennedy’s cadaver, no subject is too sacred to be skewered by Krassner. And yet his stories are soulful and philosophical, always authentic to his iconoclastic brand of personal journalism. As Art Spiegelman said, “Krassner is one of the best minds of his generational to be destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical, naked—but mainly hysterical. His true wacky, wackily true autobiography is the definitive book on the sixties.”

Nebenkriegsschauplatz wird auf einmal in den Medien gehypt und ein aussichtsreicher Kandidat zerstört. Irgendein Produkt oder eine Person wird auf einmal aus der Anonymität zur viralen Sensation katapultiert. Was Sie nicht wissen: Es gibt jemanden, der für all das verantwortlich ist. Im Regelfall jemand wie ich. Wer bin ich? Ich bin ein Medien-Manipulator. In einer Welt, in der Blogs die Nachrichten beherrschen und auch verfälschen, ist es mein Job, die Blogs zu kontrollieren - so gut, wie das einem Menschen überhaupt möglich ist. Warum teile ich diese Geheimnisse? Ich habe eine Welt satt, in der Blogs indirekte Bestechungsgelder annehmen, in der die Werber beim Schreiben der Nachrichten helfen, Journalisten Lügen verbreiten und keiner am Ende dafür verantwortlich gemacht wird. Ich ziehe den Vorhang über all diesen Vorgängen weg, weil ich nicht möchte, dass die Öffentlichkeit weiterhin für dumm verkauft wird. Ich werde Ihnen genau erklären, wie die Medien heute WIRKLICH funktionieren. Was Sie dann mit diesem Wissen anfangen, das überlasse ich ganz Ihnen

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.
