Press Gang: How Newspapers Make Profits from Propaganda

Front Cover
Macmillan, 2003 - British newspapers - 787 pages
Tracing the changing face of British Newspapers, Roy Greenslade shows how the way we live has been shaped by what we read. With the insight one would expect from the Media commentator for the Guardian, the newspaper world is brought to life, from its dominance as a news force in the 40s to the salacious world of the gutter press in the 1980s. While analysing such dominant media figures as Rupert Murdoch, Robert Maxwell and Kevin Mackenzie, Profits from Propaganda also examines the trends, the biases and the impact of the Press as we know it today.
