Paul Dacre's scandal sheet merits a book of its own, and I hope Nick Davies does shake up Fleet Street again sometime soon with another forensic look at a deepy-flawed trade/craft/profession... What is particularly worrying is that I've worked in a churnalism newsroom and still thought of myself as a good reporter, whereas in reality I'd become nothing more than a text processor. It takes an intelligent outsider to see what has gone wrong - I use the word outsider to refer to someone not working in a churnalism newsroom rather than Fleet St. A compelling and important book and I enjoyed the entertaining lectures as well.
