Description :  <b>"The closer the new media future gets, the further victory appears." --Michael Wolff</b><br /><br />This is a book about what happens when the smartest&#xa0;people in the room decide something is inevitable, and&#xa0;yet it doesn’t come to pass. What happens when omens&#xa0;have been misread, tea leaves misinterpreted, gurus&#xa0;embarrassed?<br /><br />Twenty years after the Netscape IPO, ten years after&#xa0;the birth of YouTube, and five years after the first iPad,&#xa0;the Internet has still not destroyed the giants of old&#xa0;media. CBS, News Corp, Disney, Comcast, Time Warner,&#xa0;and their peers are still alive, kicking, and making&#xa0;big bucks. <i>The New York Times</i> still earns far more from&#xa0;print ads than from digital ads. Super Bowl commercials&#xa0;are more valuable than ever. Banner ad space on Yahoo&#xa0;can be bought for a relative pittance.<br /><br />Sure, the darlings of new media—<i>Buzzfeed</i>, <i>HuffPo</i>,&#xa0;<i>Politico, </i>and many more—keep attracting ever more&#xa0;traffic, in some cases truly phenomenal traffic. But as&#xa0;Michael Wolff shows in this fascinating and sure-to-be-controversial book, their buzz and venture financing&#xa0;rounds are based on assumptions that were wrong from&#xa0;the start, and become more wrong with each passing&#xa0;year. The consequences of this folly are far reaching for&#xa0;anyone who cares about good journalism, enjoys bingeing&#xa0;on Netflix, works with advertising, or plans to have a&#xa0;role in the future of the Internet.<br /><br />Wolff set out to write an honest guide to the changing&#xa0;media landscape, based on a clear-eyed evaluation&#xa0;of who really makes money and how. His conclusion: The&#xa0;Web, social media, and various mobile platforms are not&#xa0;the new television. Television is the new television.<br /><br />We all know that Google and Facebook are thriving by&#xa0;selling online ads—but they’re aggregators, not content&#xa0;creators. As major brands conclude that banner ads next&#xa0;to text basically don’t work, the value of digital traffic to&#xa0;content-driven sites has plummeted, while the value of&#xa0;a television audience continues to rise. Even if millions&#xa0;now watch television on their phones via their Netflix,&#xa0;Hulu, and HBO GO apps, that doesn’t change the balance&#xa0;of power. Television by any other name is the game&#xa0;everybody is trying to win—including outlets like <i>The&#xa0;Wall Street Journal&#xa0;</i>that never used to play the game at all.<br /><br />Drawing on his unparalleled sources in corner offices&#xa0;from Rockefeller Center to Beverly Hills, Wolff tells us&#xa0;what’s really going on, which emperors have no clothes,&#xa0;and which supposed geniuses are due for a major fall.&#xa0;Whether he riles you or makes you cheer, his book will&#xa0;change how you think about media, technology, and the&#xa0;way we live now.

Description :  Das geheimnisvolle Imperium des Rupert Murdoch<br /><br />Rupert Murdoch ist schon zu Lebzeiten eine Legende. Der mächtige Zeitungsverleger und international tätige Medienunternehmer erntet wie kein anderer zwiespältige Reaktionen zwischen Faszination und Angst. Die aus großer Nähe geschriebene, dennoch bestechend respektlose Biographie Michael Wolffs erlaubt es erstmals, sich ein Bild des Medienmoguls und Herrschers über die Nachrichten zu machen.<br /><br />Rupert Murdoch ist einer der mächtigsten und umstrittensten Männer der Medienwelt, Besitzer zahlloser Zeitungen, Magazine und TV-Sender in vielen Ländern der Erde, darunter auch in Deutschland. Das macht ihn quasi zum Herrn über die Nachrichten und verleiht ihm großen politischen Einfluss. Der New Yorker Journalist Michael Wolff zeichnet den eindrucksvollen Werdegang des Australiers nach, gestützt unter anderem auf einmalig ausführliche Interviews mit Rupert Murdoch selbst und mit Personen aus dessen engstem Umfeld. Im Mittelpunkt seines Porträts des konservativen Medienunternehmers und seines Clans steht die sich über Monate hinziehende Schlacht um die Übernahme des „Wall Street Journal“. Wolff zeigt Murdoch als schlauen, machtbewussten und dabei merkwürdig scheuen Menschen, als Workaholic und manischen Geschäftsmann, der sich auch in Zeiten des weltweiten Zeitungssterbens mit seinem Unternehmen behaupten will.<br /><br />• Einmaliger Blick hinter die Kulissen des weitreichenden Murdoch-Imperiums<br />• Erste umfassende Schilderung von Leben und Wirken des einflussreichsten und umstrittensten Medienunternehmers der Welt<br />• Spannende Darstellung der Medienwirtschaft, die tiefgreifenden Wandel durchmacht

Release Date :  2018-02-22
Description :  <b>Le livre explosif dont Trump a voulu interdire la publication.</b> <br />Le livre qui a mis le feu à la Maison Blanche et créé l'événement mondial paraît le 22 février aux Éditions Robert Laffont. <br /> Son auteur, le journaliste Michael Wolff, a bénéficié d'un accès exceptionnel à Donald Trump et son entourage. Il nous entraîne dans les coulisses de la Maison Blanche et multiplie les révélations. <br /> Luttes de pouvoir, passe-droits en tous genres, amateurisme, trahisons et tweets scandaleux... Tout montre que Donald Trump n'était pas préparé à être à la tête de la première puissance mondiale. En avait-il même envie ? À travers plus de 200 témoignages – famille, garde rapprochée, ministres, haute administration –, Michael Wolff relance le débat : Donald Trump est-il en capacité de gouverner ? <br /> Le livre démontre comment l'entourage familial et professionnel de Trump tente de camoufler les incompétences, gaffes et autres défaillances quotidiennes du 45e président des États-Unis. Jarvanka (l'inséparable couple que forment Ivanka Trump et Jared Kushner), Steve Bannon et les autres conseillers, déploient une énergie considérable à maintenir un semblant de normalité. Mais le masque se fissure et certains membres de l'équipe craquent : " C'est pire que ce que vous pouvez imaginer. Un idiot entouré de clowns. " <br /> Best-seller aux États-Unis dès sa sortie, n°1 des ventes Amazon, tiré dès la première semaine à un million d'exemplaires, vendu dans une vingtaine de pays, <i>Le Feu et la Fureur</i> est la chronique surréaliste et pourtant vraie d'une année de chaos au sommet du monde.

7 Fuoco e furia

Author : Michael Wolff
Genre :  Politics & Current Events  Books 
Release Date :  2018-02-13
Description :  <b>Retroscena clamorosi, segreti di famiglia e "Trump confidential" in un bestseller che ha fatto infuriare il presidente.</b> Nel novembre 2016, l'elezione di Donald Trump alla presidenza degli Stati Uniti dà il via a un vero uragano nella politica americana, il più violento dai tempi del Watergate. Per documentarne gli effetti, Michael Wolff, giornalista di Washington che già durante la campagna elettorale aveva frequentato il quartier generale di Trump, si installa sui divani della Casa Bianca e osserva da vicino, "come una mosca sul muro", le azioni e le discussioni tra lo staff e il presidente. Il suo scopo è raccogliere confidenze esplosive non solo sulle faide interne che portano al licenziamento di strateghi di primo piano come Steve Bannon, l'anima nera della campagna elettorale, ma anche sui rapporti -&#xa0;al limite dell'alto tradimento -&#xa0;tra lo staff di Trump e la Russia e sui giudizi impietosi che i più stretti collaboratori danno del loro capo. Il risultato è un libro che Trump ha tentato invano di bloccare e che è diventato un caso mondiale perché racconta da una prospettiva unica la storia appassionante di un mandato imprevedibile e&#xa0;impetuoso&#xa0;quanto il presidente stesso.
