Fascinating and eye-opening,
This review is from: Dial M for Murdoch: News Corporation and The Corruption of Britain (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I agree with the favourable reviews here - this is a readable and extremely well-informed account of the practices at News Corporation unearthed before and during the Leveson Enquiry. Even allowing for Tom Watson's far-from-impartial stance on the matter, it is a shocking catalogue of malpractice and corruption involving press, politicians, political "advisors" and their ilk and the police. Watson and Hickman actually manage to preserve a reasonably matter-of-fact tone much of the time and their evidence and research is unarguable.
If you have any interest in the matter, or in press and political ethics in general this will interest you, and I recommend it as a fascinating and eye-opening read.
