About this item
What is it really like to be a tabloid journalist? How are the headlines actually made? In each chapter of this book, the author tells how he gathered a story that made the front page, and uses his inside knowledge to explain a different aspect of tabloid journalism. For instance, how does chequebook journalism work? What is it like to "doorstep" a celebrity? What do you do when the person you're interviewing turns out to have nothing to say? How carefully is a sex scandal checked before it can be run? How do you set about looking for a story that fulfills the tabloid obsession with freaks and misfits? How does it feel to be sent half-way round the world at the drop of a hat in search of a "hard news" lead?
