“Stumbling Over Truth” by Kevin Marsh (@KJMarsh)

January 3, 2014

I have a habit of reading books a long time after everyone else.

I picked up a second hand copy of Kevin Marsh‘s book about the Hutton Inquiry just before Xmas and read it quickly in a few days.

It’s a compelling read and a sobering one. It’s the best book I’ve read about journalism since “The Stalker Affair and the Press” by David Murphy (another book I picked up second hand).

The moral?

Words matter. Choose them carefully. And beware of those who use them carelessly or to mislead.
