5.0 out of 5 stars How the British press failed and what to do about it. 19 Oct. 2012
By Roger Wegener - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Everyone should be interested to find out what happened to the press in Britain - and the reasons why the Leveson inquiry was necessary to get to the bottom of that. This book tells that story - every nasty and unpalatable little piece of it - including the corruption of British politics and police.

It also looks at the history of press regulation in Britain and documents the failure of the press to self regulate over many decades. Hopefully Lord Leveson will remidy that this time.

And it's not just a matter for Britain. Many western countries have similar problems - certainly we do in Australia and I would suggest so too does the US.

And while the Murdoch's dominate much of the media across those three countries - and had such a large part to play in the failure of the British press - it is not just about them. It is mostly about a sick and corrupt culture - that preys on ordinary people for profit.

I learned quite a lot from this book. You will too.
