BBC Correspondent John Simpsons book – Unreliable Sources

I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment on how the 20th Century was reported – It is John Simpsons – Unreliable Sources.   – sometimes the 20th century was not exactly truthful.  A good read if you are worried about reputation managemrnt on a daily basis.

When you think about it, the UK press were doing things in the late 1800’s that Edward Bernays talks about in his book Propaganda which was published in 1928.   The Boer War is an absolute eye opener.  It is amazing what you get told growing up and then find out what really happened when you are older.  I would think that any person going into a PR or journalism career should read this book.
