Summary
The War on Journalism is a harrowing story of megalomaniac press barons, conspiracies, sackings, cutbacks, and self-censoring journalists, cowed by what legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called "chicken shit editors." When first Chelsea Manning and then Edward Snowden blew the whistle, they did more than reveal extraordinary secrets; they struck the first solid blows against centuries old traditions, where journalism was played by agreed rules. Governments "leaked" secret information to their favorite journalists in return for sympathetic coverage. Now racked by public distrust, the cash-starved mainstream media is struggling to survive. Newspapers which flourished for hundreds of years and TV networks that once ruled the world are in serious decline. Andrew Fowler gives the inside story on how and why the media helped write its own epitaph
