Dirty Politics has given more insight into the real way the National Government have manipulated the mainstream media and used far right blogs to promote a climate of fear and bullying than any other book. Hager has faced persecution since publication, the media have lost many critical voices and the National Party have only grown stronger. Why has this happened and what role does public journalism need to play in all of this?
