There are many ways to merge these two sentences. In light of this I will give you a few variations. Also good writing is usually succinct. So, I applaud your desire to take out unneeded words. 

This is very close to the original:

In John Pilger's "Hold the Front Page" he recounts his career as a journalist; his purpose is to relate his experiences  to show how the media in this current society has changed.

Here is another version:

John Pilger's work, "Hold the Front Page" not only seeks to recount his career as a journalist, but also to show how the media has changed.
