1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. M. M. Smith on 8 Dec. 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
This very comprehensive work leaves no stone unturned in offering a multi-layered perspective on the whys and wherefores of where the media and in particular the press, stands today. With many eminent contributors, including journalists and academics, Richard Lance Keeble and John Mair have contributed to and compiled an outstanding work not so esoteric that a lay person such as myself cannot understand it with ease.

The book is presented in five sections, the majority of articles contained therein being headed with a succinct, engaging summary allowing the reader to `dip in' to a particular area of interest. The first (A) informs the current debate addressing many of the salient issues raised during the course of the Leveson Enquiry, offering the reader insight as to how the press works and the differing tensions within giving rise to the seemingly inevitable ethical/moral dilemma journalists face today. The second section (B) focuses on the power and influence of the Murdoch family and makes for very interesting reading as one learns of the interactions between the press moguls and governments in their power struggle, seemingly the latter losing out to the former corporate giants whose undoubted influence can win or lose them general elections. Section three (C ) considers how the Leveson Enquiry throws light on the weaknesses inherent in both the media and political arenas, enabling a lack of accountability to exacerbate phone hacking as a journalistic information source. We are shown how, at its inception and beyond, it was almost covertly sanctioned in the inertia of those who chose to ignore it including those parts of the press who, possibly not surprisingly, considered it not to be newsworthy.

This book has deservedly become the standard text on leveson.deservedly. Totally comprehensive totally of the moment.mixes big names and not so big. hacks and academics.the impact is judged by the fact that according to 'sources close to him' that lord justice leveson himself has read. It as part of his homework.you cannot praise this work enough n
