"The vigour of newspapers as a medium of mass communication in the face of competition from radio, television and latterly electronic news-sheets has confounded media prophets of earlier decades. A reason for this was advanced by the Daily Telegraph in an editorial opinion published when the paper reappeared after strike which had stopped national papers for several days." (jacket)
