This book is easy to read and provides an interesting, albeit disappointing, overview on how the news industry works and what influences its content. I found the information to be put across in a logical and easy to understand manner, but some of the examples he used, while fascinating, were in my view unnecessarily long. More than a few times I found myself skipping over pages to get to the next section.
Don't let the title put you off, the whole "An Award-winning Reporter Exposes Falsehood, Distortion and Propaganda in the Global Media" sounds very Michael Moore, but it's not. It is a very 'hands-on' from someone who has a lot of experience in and around a news desk and isn't attempting to play the shock jock of research. by Ben
