From the vast political power of Rupert Murdoch's News International and the merger of television and politics in Italy, to the part that Facebook and Twitter played in the Arab revolts and the radical openness stimulated by WikiLeaks, and from the growing worldwide power of public relations and the decline of the newspaper in the West, to the booming, raucous and sometimes corrupt Indian media and the growing self-confidence of African journalism, John Lloyd examines the technological shifts, the political changes and the market transformations through which journalism is passing in the post-truth age. The Power and the Story is a fascinating global survey of a trade that has claimed the right to hold power to account and the duty to make the significant interesting - while making both the first draft of history, and a profit.
