When your wallet dictates your conscience who ya gonna call? No. unfortunately we have no Ghostbusters coming to the rescue.
The new chair of the parliamentary Culture, Media and Sport Committee is Conservative MP for Folkestone and Hythe Damian Collins:
Damian’s job will be to make sure the committee continues its crucial work of calling to account and overseeing the UK press and media in a rigorous and completely unbiased way.
I’m sure Damian will be completely unhindered in this task by the fact his publisher is Harper Collins – and this year he has received thousands of pounds in advance fees from the publisher for a mysterious new book he hasn’t yet written.
That would be the Harper Collins owned by Rupert Murdoch.
So no conflict of interest there then …
