Breaking The Mirror: The Murdoch Effect
  • English

This 1997 film considers the downfall of the Daily Mirror, the newspaper Pilger worked on for 23 years: a popular, intelligent tabloid once read by a quarter of the British population and which genuinely reflected its readers' concerns. Pilger asks why the qualities seen in the paper prior to the 1970s are no longer apparent, examining the contraction of the press following the Sun's symbolic move to Wapping, coverage of the Hillsborough disaster, the fate of the Daily Mirror under Robert Maxwell, and the stranglehold of Rupert Murdoch.
