apparently a pack of nonsense though...

This looked like a required read of a subject we were researching, but according to her testimony in the Leveson inquiry, these 'stories' are just that, just 'stories', just a pack of embellished stories that have in no way been verified or investigated. Fair enough, but anyone could create such a work of fiction, only this is not how the book is being promoted on the cover, where it is promoted, seemingly, as fact - 'Tabloid Girl, a true Story'. 'In her hilariously honest memoirs she reveals what really goes on behind the scenes at a major tabloid newspaper' ? 'A rip-roaring account of her time on Fleet Street. 4 stars' -News of the World ?
Second to the content misrepresentations, Media personalities have also been named in places through the text, thought this rather out of order given her recent admission that this book, even in the opinion of the author herself, is just vastly elaborated hearsay, covered with 'dramatisation' and 'topspin' or 'colour' as she likes to call it...but as Lord Leveson would have it, 'lies'.
