It cost the corporation its Chairman and Director General and seemed to many to usher in an age of self-doubt and caution. It was also the end of the most extraordinary experiment in news management Britain has ever seen ? the decade of Alastair Campbell, Tony BlairOCOs spin doctor, charged with delivering what Peter Mandelson described as New LabourOCOs mission to ?create the truthOCO.

But Lord Hutton condemned the BBC and its journalism without hearing a single word from the man who put the ?sexed upOCO dossier story on the air: Today editor Kevin Marsh. Had Hutton done so, his conclusions would surely have been very different. Now outside the BBC, Marsh can tell for the first time the inside story of Andrew GilliganOCOs notorious 6.07 broadcast on the Today programme. He explains how he was certain the story of the ?sexed upOCO dossier was true, but also how GilliganOCOs ?flawed reportingOCO fatally damaged the BBCOCOs case.

And he tells of his growing disillusionment with the British mediaOCOs aptitude and appetite for holding power to account ? or even telling the truth. Stumbling Over Truth is an important book for anyone who wants to understand the toe-to-toe confrontations between Tony BlairOCOs government and the BBC, and the fight to resist unremitting government attempts to manipulate the media.
