I don't recognise the descrptions of the lobby correspondents. I took my own action against them when I banned them from 10 Downing Street but they are not mired in sleaze, bed hopping and drunkeness which Marr outlines in his book.

Crammed with info and delivered at speed in typical Marr style. Always interesting and with great insight honed over years of experience and obviously good research and knowledge of his craft.

A very interesting narrative, told in Marr's irreverent and inimitable style, that gives a potted history of how journalism came about, and his own personal career in it.

Interesting to have an inside explanation as to the games of politics that cost the workers (producers) so much to receive such poor governance.

A fascinating insight into journalism. I'm not doing Media Studies myself but this is a 'must read' for students or budding journalists.

Andrew Marr's book gives an good view of current British journalism especially related to current British politics. Very much enjoyed.

Marr has produced an entertaining book, his history of journalism looking at significant themes such as ownership, the demise of Fleet Street, the rise of pundits and the peculiarities of the TV interview. There is no index, but his comments on fellow journalists are always mild-mannered anyhow.
He does tackle criticism of journalists (too close to politicians, fictional stories and the preference of TV for pictures rather than facts) but it's not always convincing. And he fails to address the post-moderist critique that all analysis is contingent and relative.
