But three flaws make Flat Earth News valuable rather than definitive.
download for others
The first is that Davies uses his book to pursue a feud of relevance only to staff of his own employer, the Guardian Media Group. His attack on former Observer editor Roger Alton is implausible and mean-spirited. Alton is among the most talented, honest and successful editors of his generation.
Nothing here challenges that. Second, Davies ignores much that is brave and honest about the British press. Now, like toothless babies they suckle on the sugary teat of misinformation and poop into the diaper we used to call the six o'clock news. It is a claim too far, as Peter Hain and Derek Conway are only the most recent British public figures to discover.
When editorial resources are brought to bear on topics of clear, public significance, this country can still boast that it has a vibrant, insightful and courageous national press. It also has the BBC.
My third caveat is as much prediction as criticism. I suspect Flat Earth News will come to be seen as among the last excellent books about journalism by a member of the pre-digital generation.
