Product Description


The nation's fruity new sweetheart Rebekah Brooks, 43, former chief executive of News International is traduced disgracefully in a new memoir, 'Hack', by snivelling former employee Graham Johnson, 44. He writes: 'Tall and slim, an English Rose with a killer streak, deadly as nightshade. But in the flesh she was strangely sexless, her femininity scraped barren by a corporate zealotry incongruous with her alabaster skin and floral prints'
- Ephraim Hardcastle --Daily Mail

For a large chunk of his life, Graham worked as a self-confessed 'tabloid terrorist'. He worked for Rebekah Brooks during her infamous stint as the editor of the News of the World. During this time, he did a lot of very nasty things, which he has decided to write down and release in his new book --VICE Magazine

Even if you re not a tabloid reader, this peek inside The News Of The World is a timely expose of a murky business. Johnson reveals how stories were fabricated, lives were ruined and privacy invaded. But what happens when News International turns on one of its own? A compelling read --Shortlist

HASH(0x8c64ff18) out of 5 stars Topical good read 13 Jun. 2012
By Leonard Johnson - Published on
Want to know what it was like being a hack at the news of the world with Rebekah Brooke's as your boss then read this excellent topical book which quickly destroys any idea of the life of a reporter being a romantic private eye kind of career. If its in the paper it must be true in fact according to the author it's almost the opposite,for every true scoop there is an invented one all in all this is a good read particularly at the present time when some of the books characters are making the news themselves I look forward to johnsons next effort "cartel"
