Hi all...I'm slowly on the mend. Still not 100% but feeling a little better each day.
I mentioned that I was going to read Bruce Guthrie's book, Man Bites Murdoch...
I'm no book reviewer but I will say it was an extremely entertaining read.
Bruce grew up in the housing commission homes of Broadmeadows in Melbourne and eventually went on to work for Time Inc.....editing the Herald Sun, Age newspaper and Who Weekly, the Australian equivalent of People magazine
He details his life with the various employers and his falling out with News Limited and the hatred directed towards him by former Victorian premier, Jeff Kennett. That little episode is extremely interesting.
If you get a chance, have a look at this very entertaining account of Bruce's professional life in the newspaper game
I really enjoyed it.
