Rating: 1.0/5 (1 vote cast)

The British public were told that the new information technology, heralded by The Sun’s move to Wapping, would bring a greater variety of newspapers and a more diverse media. But it produced a contracted press controlled by ever fewer proprietors. John Pilger describes the downfall of his old paper and the all-pervasive influence of Rupert Murdoch.

The Daily Mirror was the mother of all tabloids, and they were good at what they did. It was also ‘tabloids’ in the best sense of the word: they cared about their subjects and their listeners and earned their trust and affection…This film is a personal tribute, but it’s also the story of what happened to the once popular Mirror. How did it change? What happened? And how it explains the descent and cutthroat social bloodbath that has become modern media. The Murdoch Effect will shatter your conceptions of how ruthless the media has become — and how it doesn’t have to be that way.
