Ruben Salazar Man In The Middle – DVD 070.092 RUB
Description: Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle examines the life and mysterious death of pioneering journalist Ruben Salazar. At the heart of the story is Salazars transformation from a mainstream, middle-of-the-road reporter to a supporter and primary chronicler of the radical Chicano movement of the late 1960s. The film removes Salazar from the glare of myth and martyrdom and offers a clear-eyed look at the man.
The University of Southern California & The University of Southern California Libraries offer a information website dedicated to the life and work of Reuben Salazar – the site is titled The Ruben Salazar Project and can be accessed via the following link: http://rubensalazarproject.com/
Thank You, Mr. President Helen Thomas at the White House – DVD 070.02 THA
Description: Directed by award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy, Thank You, Mr. President: Helen Thomas at the White House profiles the iconic journalist, a legend in political reporting, who has covered the White House and every president since John F. Kennedy. In this 38-minute film, Thomas, still as sharp as ever, sits down for a one-on-one interview in which she reflects on her storied career, the distinct personalities and foibles of the presidents she has covered, as well as some of the scandals that have rocked the White House over the years. Supplemented by clips of Thomas in action, plus archival photos and footage, the film offers a rare glimpse of a veteran member of the White House Press Corps, who was one of only a handful of female correspondents when she began covering the presidency in the 1960s. Idolized by many and despised by some, Thomas is without a doubt a determined and steadfast journalist, who maintains the utmost respect for the office of the presidency, while knowing it is her job to ask the tough questions.
