The Last Days of Newspapers
There is a story that no one in the media seems to be willing to tell. It is one in which many journalists have a vested interest: the death of newspapers, traditionally the form known to break the biggest headlines, to chase the rumours to their source, and to undertake the most in-depth reporting. A unique insider's account of the rise and slow decline of print, this insightful, passionate book investigates one of the most fundamental transitions in the Australian media today.
