Telegraph goes digging for dirt on rivals

Posted on Feb 27, 2015

The Telegraph has responded to claims its editorial coverage was influenced by advertisers by seeking some dirt to dish on its competitors. It appears rather than focus on its own reputation the Telegraph has taken the unusual decision to try to just drag others down too.

On Friday The Telegraph claimed the Guardian is now “facing questions” over claims it changed a story about Iraq, as a result of a stipulation from Apple that its advertising should not appear next to negative stories.

It’s difficult to imagine anybody who gets drawn into this unseemly spat, whatever the truth, emerging with much credit.
