"This is the book we've been waiting for, the thrilling and important inside story of how a single reporter came through with the truth of the hacking scandals. He exposed shameful intrusions, the years of deceit, lies, and bullying. And he did more. He revealed a rottenness at the heart of British life in the relations of press, police, and Parliament, institutions that, taken as a whole, failed the big test. Hack Attack is an indictment of the worst of journalism, but is itself an exhilarating demonstration of how the best of journalism-hard-won, honest reporting-is the lifeblood of any democracy." Sir Harold Evans "First in the Guardian and now in this book, the reporting of Nick Davies has revealed the insidious abuse of power-and the public trust-by the Murdoch press from the top down. The British hacking scandal is the ultimate expression of Murdoch-culture run amok: corruption in the Fourth Estate as dangerous to democracy as the worst excesses of heads of state. " Carl Bernstein


The stand-out, definitive book about phone-hacking, the biggest scandal of our age, told by the man who broke the story

4.0 von 5 Sternen I haven't finished reading this yet, but I know ... 3. September 2014
Von Jane Griffiths - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I haven't finished reading this yet, but I know what happened! A lively, readable and interesting book. A bit pious in its tone. The Guardian after all is no stranger to ruining people's lives with its journalism. I hope there weren't many inaccuracies in this book. I found one, when he refers to Martin Salter, targeted (allegedly, if you believe his press releases) for "daring to oppose" the News of the World's proposed "Sarah's Law", as "MP for Reading". He wasn't. Although that is how he usually described himself. He was, from 1997-2010, Labour MP for Reading West. I should know, as from 1997-2005 I was Labour MP for Reading East. I hope Nick Davies did not just read one of Salter's press releases (he used to bombard the Guardian with them) and take it as true. Surely no Guardian journalist would ever do that?

5.0 von 5 Sternen An author with courage 26. August 2014
Von Jal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Huge read but well worth the effort. Nick Davies has written a book that needed writing. Not intended to be a thriller but 'Hack Attack' is up there with with the wickedest page-turners and the scary part for the reader is that this book is NOT FICTION. I hope the author comes Down Under to write his next book. Australia could use a journalist with the talent and dogged bravery of Nick Davies.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A brilliant insight into the murky world of power 2. Oktober 2014
Von Roy Cooper - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A brilliant insight into the murky world of power, exposing the corrupt relationship between the UK press, police and politicians who all thought they were untouchable after simply getting away with it for years ... until Nick Davies and his determined team brought their cosy world crashing down.
He never believed that phone hacking had been carried out by a 'single rogue reporter' at Murdoch's News of the World and dug deeper into the background of the sleazy tabloid whose journalists were under so much pressure to get their so-called scoops, they turned to the 'dark side', illegally using phone hacking, hiring private investigators, 'blaggers', and illegally paying/bribing police, prison staff and Royal contacts for information. As a last resort, they then used the might of Murdoch's millions to buy their way out of trouble if anyone complained.
The book charts the Guardian journalist's relentless quest for the truth and how the bully boys lined up to try and thwart him and his paper. And as Davies fought his way through the top-level cover-ups, lies, distortions and threats he got to the heart of the Murdoch empire and finally forced the establishment to act, culminating in Andy Coulson, ex-NOW Editor and David Cameron's head of communications at Number Ten, going to jail for his corrupt practices and the revelation that the paper had illegally hacked thousands of people and even the families of murder victims.
The sad aspect is that although the truth did catch up with Rupert Murdoch, his son James, Coulson, Rebekah Brookes et al., nothing much seems to have changed. The News of the World has gone, but has been replaced with the Sun on Sunday, the press still 'monsters' its victims and Murdoch's global empire is as strong as ever. In some cases, things may have got worst, as the police, using the Leveson Inquiry as an excuse, seem to be riding roughshod over press freedom in the guise of halting corruption.
George Clooney is rumoured to be making a film based on Hack Attack. Should be interesting ... and somehow I don't think the Murdoch-owned 21st Century Fox will be backing it.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The Ugly Truth behind the Murdoch Machine 24. September 2014
Von Alph Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A true and honest account of blackmail, intimidation, malice, invasion of privacy and toxic falsehood. We know it's a nasty, selfish and crooked world at times, but when those who practise such malice, bullying and corruption have such a strangle hold on our police and our politicians we should become concerned...very concerned. Guardian journalist, Nick Davies has written a gripping account of his David and Goliath struggle with Rupert Murdoch and the Fleet Street hacks. Davies claims only a pyrrhic victory but he does for a short period of time strip the veneer from the corporate monster and expose the rot and power that threatens our democracy. He's a brave man and this is an important account of corruption and abuse of power from a corporation that wields enormous influence, not only in Britain, but the USA and Australia and threatens the very principles on which our governments were established. Highly recommended.

Brilliantly told story, as unputdownable as a thriller - and a great piece of work in the service of democracy underlying it...
