My Paper Chase

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Sir Harold Evans recounts the tale of his life as a newspaperman, from his very first job, to becoming editor of the Sunday Times and The Times of London, and then his move into book publishing, becoming president and publisher of Random House. In My Paper Chase: True Stories of Vanished Times he discusses his crusading reporting style, his belief that journalism should improve the lives of those less fortunate, and his feuds with politicians, government, the court, and Rupert Murdoch.

The cover story of the August 2001 issue of The Economist predicted the 9/11 tragedy. The story was not missed - most people are just reading the wrong publications.

Lenny, would you ask him, with both Labour and the Tories not trusted by the British public, why the Lib Dems are not seen as a viable alternative for the Premiership?
