I've read your book from cover to cover. I couldn't put it down until I
finished it. Notwithstanding my general scepticism about the printed
press, it really managed to shock me. I didn't think the rot was so
widespread and deep. It was like reading that the glamorous lady living in
the nice house down the road is in reality a prostitute, and that the house
is regularly used to shoot hard core porn videos. A blurb for it should
have been: a book to understand why you don't understand. I think the book
should be turned into various video documentaries tracking the
corporatisation of Fleet Street, the rising of PR and the evolution of
state propaganda. Well done!
