Obscure journalist resigns from political job
There is coverage across several pages of today’s Times about the Coulson affair. These I have audited as follows:
1. Articles mentioning Rupert Murdoch 0
2. Articles mentioning Newscorp 1 (By Matthew Parris, who is not on the staff)
3. Articles mentioning Andy Hayman, former cop and Times columnist 0
4. Articles saying it will soon blow over 3 (Including the Leader)
Just goes to show, doesn’t it: would a weakened BBC and a dominant Newscorp owning all of BSkyB be a good idea?
Probably not. Let’s see what the M&MC have to say about the deal.
Update: Sky News about to break story about phone hacking on other newspapers.
Just fancy that……
