5.0 étoiles sur 5 Investigative journalism at its best 18 août 2014
Par Ian D. Griffin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A sprawling cast of characters fill the pages of Hack Attack: the bullying editors and hapless reporters of the Fleet Street tabloid newspapers; members of the Queen's household in Buckingham Palace; prime ministers and members of the government in Whitehall and Downing Street; petty criminals and senior policemen; wide boys and blagging operatives; movers and shakers, celebrities and philanderers; and behind it all the spectral presence of one of the world's most powerful men - media tycoon Rupert Murdoch.

Nick Davies's exhaustively researched expose - subtitled "How the truth caught up with Rupert Murdoch" - details how the press baron and key members of his staff pulled the levers of power in British politics and business during the six years from 2008 to 2014. While denying and lying, they slipped in and out the side-door of Number 10 for drinks with the prime minister, rubbing shoulders with the power elite who lived in fear of the ability of mass circulation newspapers to influence elections and destroy lives.

Davies is the reporter on the left-of-center Guardian newspaper who ran the first stories about the practice of phone hacking. His well-written report reads like a thriller. It is a compulsive page-turner. His bravery in pursuit of the truth is quite startling. One suspects that in any other country than Britain he would have been "disappeared" for dishing the dirt as he has. The scope of the cover-up he exposes makes Woodward and Bernstein, in an earlier era, seem bush league. They had Deep Throat. He has anonymous sources he code-names "Sapphire", "Ovid" and "Jingle". They had a cover-up about one crime, the Watergate break-in. He has a decade of systematic illegal activity by reporters and editors who illegally "hacked" the mobile phone voicemails of anyone and everyone who could provide source material for their stories. They hacked the Royal Family, they hacked members of the British Cabinet, sports stars and everyday citizens. Most famously, they hacked the cell phone of a murdered teenage schoolgirl. The private messages they listened to were material for news reports, most often in the now defunct News of The World, a Murdoch paper closed as a direct result of Davies's investigative journalism. Davies uncovers the secrets and lies and reveals how the police in Scotland Yard kept a lid on it for years.

Hack Attack is a must-read for anyone who lives in the UK and wants to hear how they were lied to by the establishment, or, as in my own case, resides in the USA and wonders about the corporate morality of Murdoch's henchmen on the Wall Street Journal and those who deliver "fair and balanced" reporting on Fox News.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Murdoch's Madness in Media 12 septembre 2014
Par Candace Drimmer - Publié sur Amazon.com

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Nick Davies does for Rupert Murdoch what Upton Sinclair did for the Chicago slaughterhouses in THE JUNGLE.
If you don't think it affects your media, I have two words for you.
Fox News.
Murdoch is deeply immersed in USA media too, including the always imaginary stories of The New York Post.

It reads like a mystery novel, terrifying in the reach of the fear Murdoch has engendered. Anyone who thinks US media is left wing, has never seen the ratings and addicts of the right as they suck down the swill from Fox and other Murdoch media. Sad, sick excuse for what the US should have--a free press. Best thing is the Fox news audience is dying off. Hicks living in the sticks (yes, I said that.)

Mulling over this book, it does give a news junkie a new lens through which to see UK politics (where grandsons live, so I have a vested interest). UKIP anti-EU party according to reports has gone to NYC to kiss the ring, of the Murdoch. So plan to see Tories go further in favor of dump EU. Think it's couldn't happen. Just watch.

And seeing the iconic Ben Bradlee obit, gives one pause. No editor in a Murdoch version of news will ever, reach such respect. Bradlee went for news, not monstering of the weak.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 News Corp is evil. You've been warned. 28 février 2016

In English a hack is a slang term for a journalist. This is the story of how one journalist kept investigating mobile/cell phone hacking in the Uk over a period of years and despite opposition from the British establishment and News Corp. It's a brave man who takes on the world's most powerful media mogul, Rupert Murdoch.
It all began when the royal editor of the "News of the World" a sleazy UK Sunday Tabloid newspaper was found reading the emails on the mobile phone of Prince Charles. This was declared to be a one-off event but it smelled like a cover up. Media phone hacking came to the public's attention when Milly Dowler's phone was hacked leading her parents to believe she was still alive. Nick Davies was able to investigate this over a period of years supported by the Guardian newspaper. There was eventually an inquiry lead by Lord Leveson which uncovered systematic media intrusions into the lives of celebrities and politicians. Davies exposes all of this and writes in a style that is compelling and honest. He is to be congratulated for continuing to chase the media and trying to keep them honest. Not all heroes wear body armour. Davies had determination and has managed to prove that not all members of the fourth estate are worthless scum.
Sadly nothing came of this in the end. Over time the poisonous spider that is Rebekah Wade has come back, the politicians have climbed back in bed with News Corp and British politics is as morally corrupt as ever. This book tries to expose all that and should serve as a warning to the British public.

The hack attack refers to how British newspaper reporters and their hired investigators were listening to the voice recordings of cell phone messages left for people of public interest. Essentially they were able to find and employ the security code that one uses when recalling a phone message left on one's cell phone. Then they in effect impersonate the cell phone owner to listen in. This was a common practice within the News of the World paper from 2006 onward, yet it was not publicly known. Rupert Murdoch and his son James Murdoch are the principals within the family that owned the paper as well as many other publishing and broadcasting entities both in the UK and the US. Notably Fox News and the Wall Street Journal within the US.

The book follows a chronological path as Nick Davies (of the Guardian newspaper) was able to tenaciously investigate and finally get enough solid evidence out into public view to expose the whole shoddy and illegal picture of what was going on. In parallel with his personal story there are chapters which effectively depict just how the Murdoch enterprise is able to manipulate people and policy at the highest levels. Scotland Yard and the Metropolitan police were even compromised. Paying hush money as well as outright bribery were also employed by News of the World.

Much of the hacking was done to get sexually compromising material on sports and media stars so as to sell newspapers in the tabloid sort of fashion. But a lot of hacking was also done on those in important political positions including prime ministers. Even the royal family was hacked. This practice enabled the paper to use its threat of potential disclosure to gain access and influence in support of its political objectives. Add that threat to the ongoing threat of using the extensive power of the media to influence public perceptions of prominent people and government policy.

A primary tool for political use is the "monstering" of one who will not align with the views or interests of the paper. In other words the threat to use the newspaper to publicly develop a strong negative view of someone. (It reminded me of attaching the pastor of the church in Chicago that Barack Obama attended with his public image.) Just using that tactic from time to time is enough to ensure that the threat is seen as real and hence is effective towards achieving the paper's goals.

This book is not pushing any point of view or political message. It just reveals specifics of how government can be corrupted by concentration of media power. I learned a lot from it. It's so easy for anyone to carry a viewpoint that big money corrupts politics but it's so much better to actually see how it works in practice. And the book is well written and enjoyable to read. One criticism I've heard here is that there are just so many people named and followed that the book can be difficult. There is a Who's Who listing within the opening sections of the kindle edition that I read. But the dozen or so principal players soon become familiar and I didn't find myself feeling a need to bring every name into context with prior events.

This is an important book, especially for readers outside of the UK who probably know little of the events depicted. It calls for a serious reader, but there's nothing dry about it, it is engaging.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pity about the innocents but facts never get in the way of gutter journalism 16 mai 2016
Par Dr. Dayle Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
An attempt to pin down Rupert Murdoch's News Limited and his various papers in London before the News of the world nose dived into the footpath in London.It tells some of the background as to how the press conducted itself (with much dirt, lawbreaking and too little professionalism) and how the scandals thereby exposed spread to much of those parts of the world that News Ltd's papers were published.
Regrettably the terms of reference for the subsequent UK Royal Commission, and the evidence by Murdoch, did not really get to the bottom of the scandal
