    The Awful Truth
    The Awful Truth
    My adventures with Australia's most notorious tabloid
    Hailed as 'a fearless exposer of folly, vice and crime' when it first hit the streets in the 1890s, Truth was later condemned by a High Court Judge as 'a wretched little paper, reeking of filth, injurious to the health of house servants and young girls'. Much later it earned the nickname 'The Old Whore of La Trobe Street'. Truth was called many things but it was never boring. Adrian Tame knows that better than anyone as he worked for Truth for more than a decade as a reporter and news editor. In the years it was owned by the Murdoch family he worked alongside young Rupert as he cut his teeth on the shock horror scandals that graced the pages of Truth when it was selling a whopping 400,000 copies a week. Funny, often outrageous and always thoroughly entertaining, The Awful Truth is a rollercoaster ride through an colourful era of newspapers and larger-than-life reporters that we will never see the like of again.
