The News Machine : The Untold Story, Paperback Book

The News Machine : The Untold Story Paperback


What started in 2002 as a seemingly harmless story about illegal phone hacking blew up into a national storm when it was alleged that missing teenager Millie Dowler's phone had been hacked by private investigators working for News International.

It led to a public inquiry and brought down the once unassailable News of the World, Rebekah Brooks, David Cameron's Press Secretary Andy Coulson.

Through his involvement with the news story since the beginning, James Hanning got to know Glenn Mulcaire when his conviction of phone hacking in 2007 led to the resignation of Andy Coulson.

Together they will be telling the story from the inside, the human cost, the larger-than-life egos in the news machine.

The text is solely written by James Hanning, with Glenn Mulcaire providing the background information and his personal view (he has received no financial reward for this).
