Robert Maxwell acquires the U.K.’s Daily Mirror and five other British newspapers. 

One of his new writers, Joe Haines, says he can prove the new owner is a crook and a liar. Since Maxwell promises not to interfere in reporting, Haines probably thinks he can get away with publishing his story.

Instead, Maxwell turns Haines to the “dark side.” Haines becomes a loyal supporter of Maxwell and even writes his authorized biography.
