Freedom of the press and freedom of speech are such fundamental cornerstones in the foundations of democracy that it becomes an affront and outrage to the principles by which we live and are Governed when the Fourth Estate abuses its protections and priviledged position in undermining the very Democracy that vests so much trust and empowerment in it Nick Davies account of the systemic abuse by the Murdock Tabloid press of that trust as revealed by the hacking scandals is not so much a tale of biting the hand that feeds as one of visciously savaging and maiming itDavies book is fundamentally about power and the casual arrogant abuse of power it is also about truth or the lack it For in a democratic political system abuse of power corruption cannot live in the open they need to be covered by a web of deceipt lies and secrecy The book depressingly shatters ones confidence not only in the Journalistic profession but also in the Police regulators and ultimately in the highest institutions of Government who not only Toadyed up to and schmoozed with seedy muck rakers but actually recruited one of their ringleaders and brought a criminal into the heart of Downing streetMore shocking than the phone hacking itself are the passages detailing the influemce of Murdock and his Lieutenants on political decision making and policy arising from the Politicans fear of bullying or monstering at the hands of Murdock henchmenDaives meticulously and painstakingly outlines his own trail in uncovering the scandal every second chapter chronociles his steps progress and setbacks in his investigation while the alternate chapters construct a fly on the wall narrative of what was going on pieced together from interviews with Journalists investigators politicans police officers and testimony from the Leveson enuiryWhilst Daives is undoubtably fearless brave determined and crusading he does adopt a moral high ground position which is somewhat dismissive of those he considers beneath him intellectually one suspects there is a mild case of if not uite vindictiveness then certainly minor score settling and belittling He also loses the run of himself somewhat in exaggerating the influence of the Murdock press over such monumentous events as the decision not to join the Euro to go to war in Ira as well as fiscal policy under the Labour Governments A rant against neoliberalism is also completely out of place in the final chapterDespite these minor flaws the Central achievement of this book is that by exposing the truth about power and how absue of power corrupts the truth it restores faith in the ability of Journalism to be a force for good for truth and for justice to prevail in the democratic system that guarantees Journalism its freedoms Daives expose is evidence that honest open journalism can act as a powerful antedote in overcoming and exposing its own darker side
