Book synopsis: Hackgate is the biggest scandal to engulf the mainstream press in decades. What started as a small bush fire with News of the World royal editor and his private detective friend Glenn Mulcaire being detained at Her Majesty's pleasure in 2007 for hacking illegally into the phones of the royal family and others became a forest fire destroying countless reputations (and the NoW) in its wake. The first edition, published in February 2012, soon became the standard text on the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press.
