Terrifying and hilarious,

This review is from: Stick It Up Your Punter!: The Uncut Story Of The Sun Newspaper (Pocket books) (Paperback)
This is a snappy but knowledgeable account of the rise of the Sun newspaper, mainly during the Kelvin McKenzie era in the eighties and nineties.
Packed with anecdote, quotation, and inside analysis (Chippindale and Horrie have both been tabloid journalists), it centres around the larger than life McKenzie and his cronies. Full of farcical tales and moments of madness, it is one of the only books about newspapers I could imagine making a great film. Be careful reading it on public transport, as it's often laugh-out-loud funny.
