Item Description...
Overview
For twenty-five years, Larry Garrison has been a news broker, operating within the secret side of the news, finding and releasing some of the most sensational stories of the last couple decades. Now, in this riveting account of the news behind the news, Garrison lets readers in on how such headlining stories are found, manipulated, and released to the public, blowing the whistle on the news media, and divulging what really happens when all of the major news agencies compete to report the same top stories. Garrison goes inside some of his biggest cases, providing never-before-released info on the Terri Schiavo case, Michael Jackson, TWA Flight 800, 9/11, the Oklahoma bombing, Andrew Cunanan and the murder of Versace, Jon Benet Ramsey, the Robert Blake murder case, Mary Kay Letourneau, and many, many more. Gutsy and gritty, Larry has uncovered and been exposed to facts of some of the biggest headlines of our times. And now, in The Newsbreaker, he finally tells the story behind the headlines, how news is made and reported, and why the networks wouldn't, or couldn't, give the full story on some of the most important news events of our time.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
ego trip  Feb 27, 2008
I'll save you some time. The "behind the scenes" looks end up with Garrison admitting that he does not know what really happened. What he does know is how good he is, how important he is, and how to promote himself (as he proudly proclaims over and over).

Save your time and money and read the people who took the time to find out what happened before they wrote a book about it. On the Oklahoma City bombing, read The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing. Jayna Davis worked for ten years to piece together this story. It is fact-bound and does not waste any words.

The downing of TWA 800. Garrison doesn't know what happened, but someone else does, because he took the time the dig and figure it out. Read First Strike: TWA Flight 800 and the Attack on America.

This is really an autobiography of a nobody, told in great and loving detail. It pretends to give you insight into how the news industry works behind the scenes. But most of it you know already: somebody knows somebody else who has a lot of connections. Garrison has lots and lots of connections, and he is happy to tell you about them.

I see that some of them have posted five star reviews on this page. It's nice that Garrison has friends. But I am your friend, reader, and I advise you to skip this one. It has no redeeming qualities.

 
Not quite what I expected  May 21, 2007
If you are interested in finding out who Larry Garrison is with a few good antidotes interspersed through a few chapters then this is the book you are looking for. The most compelling "behind the scenes" story was a recollection of a dinner appointment with Michael Schiavo, husband of Terri Schiavo. The photo section is full of photos of Natalee Holloway, the teen who disappeared on a trip to Aruba, but there is nothing written about the case except to remind the reader that Mr. Garrison wrote a book with Natalie's father called "Aruba". This was a very light read and seemed like it was thrown together over a short period of time. I would not recommend this book if you are really looking for a good intellectual read.
 
Not Worth the Time or Money  May 6, 2007
As a news junkie, I had hoped this book would reveal some of the stories behind the stories. Alas, it was not to be. The book is more about promotion of Larry Garrison, his career and the story of how he brokers "news". It had little information to offer about news stories he has brokered and what is provided, for the most part, is already known.

The most interesting chapter focused on Michael Schiavo and how he appeared, to Mr. Garrison, to be after money more than anything else. That may be true, and is mildly interesting, but really doesn't shed any more light on that story.

In addition to being relatively boring, the book is not all that well written. The writing is more tabloid style, although that is appropriate since the stories covered are "tabloid" type stories.

If you are interested in news and the stories behind it, look elsewhere. If you like tabloid journalism, you may like this book.
 
Truth  Sep 12, 2006
At last all my questions answered. Great and truthful read. A pleasure to read what I wanted to know. Loved it. Read it.
