What started as a small bush fire News of the World royal editor Clive Goodman and his private detective friend Glenn 'Trigger' Mulcaire being detained at Her Majesty's pleasure in 2007 for hacking illegally into the phones of the royal family and others - has become a forest fire destroying countless reputations (and the NoW itself) in its wake. The few hacked by NI in 2007 became nearly 6,000 in late 2011. Hackgate has also thrown the spotlight on the somewhat excessively close ties between the press, police and political elite - and raised countless questions about media standards and regulation. As Lord Leveson continues his inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the press, The Phone Hacking Scandal: Journalism On Trial (edited by Richard Lance Keeble and John Mair) brings together an extraordinary range of academics, journalists and media activists to provide bang-up-to-date, informed and lively commentary on the controversy: Brian Cathcart on 'The Press, the Leveson Inquiry and the Hacked Off Campaign' Glenda Cooper on 'Facing up to the Ethical Issues surrounding Facebook Use' Jackie Newton and Sallyann Duncan on 'Exploring the Ethics of Death Reporting in the Social Media Age' Richard Peppiatt on 'The Story Factory: Infotainment and the Tabloid Newsroom' Alan Rusbridger on how Hackgate 'reveals failure of normal checks and balances to hold power to account' John Tulloch on 'Oiling a Very Special Relationship: Journalists, Bribery and the Detective Police' Other contributors include Chris Atkins, Steven Barnett, Patrick Barrow, Teodora Beleaga, Daniel Bennett, Damian Paul Carney, the Co-ordinating Committee for Media Reform, Tim Crook, Sean Dodson, Chris Frost, Ivor Gaber, Tony Harcup, Phil Harding, Huw L. Hopkins, Mike Jempson, Nicholas Jones, John Lloyd, Tim Luckhurst, Kevin Marsh, Ben McConville, Eamonn O'Neill, Wayne Powell, Stewart Purvis, Justin Schlosberg, Kate Smith, Judith Townend and Barry Turner.
