Man Bites Murdoch: Four Decades In Print, Six Days In Court

Synopsis

Bruce Guthrie survived tuberculosis, Melbourne's gritty northern suburbs and a boss who twice tried to sack him in his first six months in newspapers, to become a foreign correspondent and then one of Australia's feistiest and most controversial editors. His CV boasts editorships of "The Age", "The Sunday Age" and the "Herald Sun", magazines "Who Weekly" and "The Weekend Australian", even a high level stint at America's celeb-news bible, "People". Then, just as he claimed one of the industry's most glittering prizes, he fell foul of Rupert Murdoch and his henchmen, who promptly dispensed with his services. What would any self-respecting Broadmeadows boy do in such circumstances? Sue them, of course. This is Guthrie's explosive account of almost 40 years in the news business, his brutal dismissal from Australia's biggest selling paper and the celebrated court case that exposed the inner workings of the world's biggest media company - and the treachery of its most senior executives.
