This book examines British national newspapers after the 1986 "Death of Fleet Street" triggered by Rupert Murdoch. Since then competition has intensified with more titles, fatter papers, more sections, and aggressive marketing. Newspaper Power is based on 200 interviews with senior newspaper people in the 1990s. The author argues that it is the newspapers (not television) which define political crises and severely wound Prime Ministers; that the broadsheets have increasingly regarded finance as the new core of serious journalism; and that the tabloids have re-defined the British monarchy as soap opera. He also analyzes the control over policy-making for the press, broadcasting, and cross-media ownership, which is exercised by the Prime Minister in consultation with the press.
