The Return of the Moguls chronicles an important story in the making, one that will affect more than just the newspaper businessÑit has the power to change democracy as we know it. Over the course of a generation, the story of the daily newspaper has been an unchecked slide from record profitability and readership to plummeting profits, increasing irrelevance, and inevitable obsolescence. The forces killing major dailies, alternative weeklies, and small-town shoppers are well understoodÑor seem obvious in hindsight, at leastÑand the catalog of publications that have gone under reads like a whoÕs who of American journalism. During the past half-century, old-style press barons gave way to a cabal of corporate interests unable or unwilling to invest in the future even as technological change was destroying their core business. The Taylor family sold the Boston Globe to the New York Times Company in 1993 for a cool $1.1 billion. Twenty years later, the Times Company resold it for just $70 million. The unexpected twist to the story, however, is not what they sold it for but who they sold it to: John Henry, the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox. A billionaire who made his money in the world of high finance, Henry inspired optimism in Boston because of his track record as a public-spirited business executiveÑand because his deep pockets seemed to ensure that the shrunken newspaper would not be subjected to further downsizing. In just a few days, the sale of the Globe was overtaken by much bigger news: Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and one of the worldÕs richest people, had reached a deal to buy the Washington Post for $250 million. HenryÕs ascension at the Globe sparked hope. BezosÕs purchase seemed to inspire nothing short of ecstasy, as numerous observers expressed the belief that his lofty status as one of our leading digital visionaries could help him solve the daunting financial problems facing the newspaper business. Though Bezos and Henry are the two most prominent individuals to enter the newspaper business, a third preceded them. Aaron Kushner, a greeting-card executive, acquired CaliforniaÕs Orange County Register in July 2012 and then pursued an audacious agenda, expanding coverage and hiring journalists in an era when nearly all other newspaper owners were trying to avoid cutting both. The newspaper business is at a perilous crossroads. This essential book explains why, and how todayÕs new crop of media moguls might help it to survive.

If Rupert Murdoch and Sumner Redstone are so smart, why are their stocks long-term losers? We live in the age of big Media, with the celebrity moguls telling us that "content is king." But for all the excitement, glamour, drama, and publicity they produce, why can't these moguls and their companies manage to deliver better returns than you'd get from closing your eyes and throwing a dart? The Curse of the Mogul lays bare the inexcusable financial performance beneath big Media's false veneer of power. By rigorously examining individual media businesses, the authors reveal the difference between judging a company by how many times its CEO is seen in SunValley and by whether it generates consistently superior profits. The book is packed with enough sharp-edged data to bring the most high-flying, hot-air filled mogul balloon crashing down to earth.

The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening. I didn't know anything about him, not even his name. Only that we shared a taxi, and he was staying at the hotel where I worked. We met in room 1103. Where he commanded not only my body but my soul. The next day he was gone and I only had a memory of him. I could still taste his kisses, feel his demanding touch. I searched for him for months. Daydreaming about him. Wondering if I'd ever find him. Until the day I find myself staring face to face with his jeweled black eyes again. He says lets keep it casual, and my heart knows that falling for this workaholic in a three-thousand-dollar suit is off the table. Because he has a secret. One that's a deal breaker for me. My Suit has a name. Ian Ford. And this is our story. *Mogul contains characters from Tycoon, but is written to be read as a standalone.

First or second generation Jewish immigrants who had often worked their way up from poor backgrounds, the Hollywood Moguls were remarkable entrepreneurs, the likes of whom will probably never be seen again. Sam Goldwyn, Jack and Harry Warner, Louis B Mayer, Harry Cohn, and Zukor and Lasky ruled the movie empires in the golden age of Hollywood. These Tinseltown gods liked to be seen at race meetings as proof of their social standing, were loyal to their wives but made good use of the casting couch, they were Jewish but more American than apple pie, and the stories of their rise to the top are as fascinating as they are entertaining.When Harry Cohn, iron dictator of Columbia Pictures, died a rabbi was asked if there was anything good that could be said of him ‘Sure,’ he replied, ’he’s dead’. Louis B. Mayer, of MGM fame, regarded himself as head of a big family – if one of his ‘children’ was out of line, his solution was to punch them in the jaw. Jack Warner had a determination that the studio bearing his name should product quality products. Brother Harry looked upon things differently: ‘I don’t want it good’ he once said, ‘I want it Tuesday’.The Men Who Made Hollywood is a fascinating look at the men who really did make Hollywood and, in doing so, created the first and arguably most important art form of the 20th century. Based on interviews with family members, actors, producers and directors this is a frank and detailed portrayal of the extraordinary lives of these powerbrokers, from their backgrounds and motivations to their love lives and quarrels.Michael Freedland is an author, journalist and broadcaster. He has written over 40 books, many of them telling the stories of the Hollywood greats, from Frank Sinatra to Al Jolson. He is also a BBC broadcaster and writes regularly for national newspapers on both sides of the Atlantic.

"In The Wired City, Dan Kennedy tells the story of the New Haven Independent, a nonprofit community website in Connecticut at the leading edge of reinventing local journalism. Through close attention to local issues--and through an ongoing conversation with its readers--the Independent's small staff has created a promising model of how to provide the public with the information it needs in a self-governing society. In addition, Kennedy examines other online news projects, including nonprofit organizations such as Voice of San Diego and the Connecticut Mirror and for-proft ventures such as Batavian, Baristanet, and CT News Junkie. At a time of pessimism over the future of journalism, The Wired City offers hope. What Kennedy documents is not the death of journalism but rather the uncertain and sometimes painful early stages of rebirth." -- Back Cover
