Peter Oborne - A Gentleman & A Scholar
« on: February 17, 2015, 09:20:07 PM »
Ok so Peter Oborne occasionally presents Week in Westminster on Radio 4 and that's about it as far as links to a radio forum may go.  However, his just-published-today article over on the Open Democracy website in which he explains his reasons for resigning his post at the Telegraph is a must-read for anyone.  He describes breaking down of the wall between the advertising and editorial departments and in particular the coverage of the on-going HSBC story which he cites as a fraud on the Telegraph readers.  A must read... so what are you waiting for...
