Between 1983 and 1985 Fleet Street's most breathtaking 'exclusives' included the assassination of Andropov by Brezhnev's son, the caning of Prince Andrew in a notorious nightclub, Mrs. Cecil Parkinson's drowning - and the discovery of the Hitler Diaries.
Not all of these stories were downright lies - but all are instances of the astonishing ability of our national press to disregard, distort and sensationalise the truth. As Henry Porter, himself a Sunday Times columnist, reveals in this fascinating, important and ultimately worrying book, newspaper-men will stop at nothing in their unscrupulous pursuit of a 'scoop'.
