INVESTIGATIVE reporter Nick Davies may well have broken one of the most important rules of journalism by looking at the workings of his colleagues.

In these days when the media - especially the national newspapers - has been losing the trust of the public then it is probably the right time for the profession to look at itself.

Davies is a skilled and experienced investigative journalist and here he uncovers today's tricks of the trade where, he says, the Press is the victim of the PR industry and the new machinery of international propaganda.

It is a worrying picture and Davies attempts to give a degree of understanding to the stories behind the headlines.

He looks at the pressures on the Press and the changing landscape in presenting the news.

It is, to say the least, interesting.
