5.0 out of 5 stars Stick it up your punter!, 14 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Stick It Up Your Punter!: The Uncut Story Of The Sun Newspaper (Pocket books) (Paperback)
A great account of the hardships, hassles and hilarity of journalism.
The authors bring us a no-holds barred inside account of the Sun newspaper and its move from the Printers' Union dominated Fleet Street to the new graphic-artist and computer driven headquarters of the Murdoch newspaper empire in Wapping.
Editors Larry Lamb and Kelvin MacKenzie each took different approaches but each was tasked with driving up circulation. And as the saying goes, nobody ever lost money by underestimating the taste of the British public.
This tabloid paper printed a lot of sleazy stories, defending itself by saying it was in the public's interest to know what their politicians and expense-paid royals were getting up to. They also ragged other celebrities in more questionable moves.
The language is often strong and some of the tragedies covered can still draw tears. Politics feature largely. As much as anything this is a look at a slice of British history as reported by, and sometimes influenced by, the newspaper.
A great read. Essential for anyone thinking of entering the field.
