UK press history - James Curran

Power Without Responsibility (2003)

In this chapter, the first of Power Without Responsibility (2003), James Curran charts the history of the UK Press from explicit state control to corporate censorship, refuting those such as Francis Williams and just recently Alan Rusbridger who claim that 'advertising [has] set the British press free.'
