Trial by Media, 90 Years Ago.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 September 2018
Very interesting to me as this all happened within a mile of my home and my grandparents knew many of those mentioned in the book. Fascinating study of what appears to have been a signal failure in the whole process of English law that existed at the time. Also a remarkably familiar tale of trial-by-media. Even though it all took place almost 90 years ago there are clear parallels with numerous recent cases which show that even if the law itself has tightened up it's act in some aspects, the role of the media in such high profile cases remains much the same.
