I've been very much looking forward to Nick Davies' book Flat Earth News. The extracts I've seen have really ripped into the behaviour of journalists and it will not make for comfortable reading. The reviews have been very positive. Here, here and here.
I cannot deny that we in the business press can get too close to the PR industry, but there is room for expression and room for lateral thinking. We are not led by the nose.
I had just bought the book in Waterstones when I bumped into my pal Walter Menzies who has a charming habit of calling me Lord Gnome from the Street of Shame.
