New chapters for phone hacking scandal book
A second and updated version of The Phone Hacking Scandal; Journalism On Trial, edited by Richard Lance Keeble and John Mair, is to be published in the Autumn by Abramis.
It will contain new chapters by Ray Snoddy, Roy Greenslade, Sir Harold Evans and others.
The first edition was published in February 2012. It included contributions from Alan Rusbridger, Brian Cathcart, Kevin Marsh, Robert Peppiatt, Tony Harcup on the need for a "conscience clause" in work contracts to prevent journalists getting sacked for refusing to do unethical journalism and Tim Crook on why jailing journalists for hacking would serve no useful social purpose.
The updated version will be published in October.
