Flat Earth news : an award-winning reporter exposes falsehood, distortion and propaganda in the global media by Nick Davies( Book )

26 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When award-winning journalist Nick Davies decided to break Fleet Street's unwritten rule by investigating his own colleagues, he found that the business of reporting the truth had been slowly subverted by the mass production of ignorance." "Working with a network of sources, Davies uncovered the story of the prestigious Sunday newspaper which allowed the CIA and MI6 to plant fiction in its columns; the newsroom which routinely rejects stories about black people; the respected paper that hired a professional fraudster to set up a front company to entrap senior political figures; the newspapers which support law and order while paying cash bribes to bent detectives." "Davies names names and exposes the national stories which turn out to be pseudo-events manufactured by the PR industry, and the global news stories which prove to be fiction generated by a new machinery of international propaganda. He shows the impact of this on a world where consumers believe a mass of stories which, in truth, are as false as the idea that the Earth is flat - from the millenium bug to the WMD in Iraq - tainting government policy, perverting popular belief. He presents a new model for understanding news. With the help of researchers from Cardiff University, who ran a ground-breaking analysis of our daily news, Davies found most reporters, most of the time, are not allowed to dig up stories or check their facts - a profession corrupted at the core."--Jacket

"Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? Is freedom something we are born with or something we must work to attain? Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas and information THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH is going to make you think again about what it means to be free. Drawing on the best minds in philosophy, history, psychology, physics and economics, it employs decades of evidence to interrogate what we are, where we are and where we want to be. From birth onwards our minds are a battleground of competing forces. The outcome of this battle determines the society we create.

Hack attack : how the truth caught up with Rupert Murdoch by Nick Davies( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Award-winning journalist Nick Davies spent more than six years uncovering the truth about the crimes at the News of the World. 'Hack attack' is the definitive, inside story of the whole scandal. This book tells for the first time how Davies and a network of rebel lawyers, MPs and celebrities worked tirelessly to expose the facts: how they challenged Rupert Murdoch, one of the most powerful men in the world; what News International did to protect itself; how the police and the press regulator failed to uncover the truth, and challenged those who were trying to expose it. Drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with private investigators, journalists, politicians, police officers and Murdoch executives, Hack Attack blows the lid off the world of Fleet Street, Scotland Yard and Downing Street. It discloses in detail the full extent of the bullying, cheating and law-breaking in the newsroom of the News of the World, under Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson amongst others, and reconstructs the history of failure and official secrecy inside police ranks. It goes inside the corridors of power, to reveal how Murdoch's executives and journalists pressured ministers and officials for favours for themselves and their proprietor, and uncovers the chaos inside Murdoch's empire as the scandal reached its climax and rival factions succumbed to in-fighting and panic

Hack attack : the inside story of how the truth caught up with Rupert Murdoch by Nick Davies( Recording )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hack Attack is the mesmerizing story of how Davies and a small group of lawyers and politicians took on one of the most powerful men in the world and emerged victorious. It exposes the inner workings of the ruthless machine that was the News of the World and of the private investigators who hacked phones, listened to live calls, sent Trojan horse emails, bribed the police, and committed burglaries to dig up tabloid scoops. Above all, it is a study of the private lives of the power elite. It paints an intimate portrait of the social network that gave Murdoch privileged access to government and allowed him and his lieutenants to intimidate anyone who stood up to them. Spanning the course of the investigation from Davies' contact with his first source in early 2008 to the resolution of the criminal trial in June 2014, this is the definitive record of one of the major scandals of our time, written by the journalist who was there every step of the way
