The History of the Times: The Murdoch years, 1981-2002
This is the frank and absorbing history of the power struggles, triumphs, and gaffes that shaped Murdoch's Times in the closing decades of the 20th century. Behind the venerable façade the paper presented to the outside world, Graham Stewart reveals an institution as divided, uncertain, and varied as the news events it covered. It is the story of the editors who—with differing degrees of success—sought to steer the paper with wit, intelligence, integrity and, sometimes, intimidation. It is also the tale of the journalists who have reported, analyzed and interpreted the news to a reading public as often outraged as it was approving.
