Product description

Review

Ironies abound in this disturbing analysis of how western governments are clamping down on media freedoms and using dragnet surveillance to amass data on every one of us. Andrew Fowler neatly summarises, "New laws are now being shaped, both in the US and elsewhere, to make illegal that which had been normal journalistic practice; to make legal the activities of intelligence agencies which had previously been outlawed" Perhaps the biggest irony is the role played by right-wing elements of the media who endorse these draconian invasions of privacy and restrictions on freedom of expression in the name of national security. Fowler convincingly argues that journalism that speaks truth to power and democracy itself could be imperilled if we allow our governments free rein to stifle signs of dissent.

The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, June 2018

5.0 out of 5 starsThe author Daniel Silva may deliver a saga of 21 books (so far) of Gabriel Allon's fictitious counter terrorism exploits mirroring current events but "Shooting The Messenger" tells it like it is as it happens in real life
