Description - Labour and the Press, 1972-2005 by Sean Tunney

Labour sought to develop policies regulating newspaper ownership and the role of journalists. It endeavoured to both correct what it perceived as press bias against the Labour Party and to address the broader issues of political and cultural diversity. Labours & the Press, 1972-2005 provides a lucid analysis of how Labours policies on the press sit within the context of the partys overall development -- from Harold Wilson, through the partys flirtation with Robert Maxwell, to the robust approach of Tony Blair. It offers a fresh insight into New Labours concern with press management and political communications. The author demonstrates how tensions of the past shed new light on Labour Party practices of the present. [Also available in hardback (ISBN 1845191382) at GBP47.50]
