There is a wonderful obituary of Ian Craig, who was a lobby journalist for the Liverpool Echo and Manchester Evening News for more than 20 years, by David McKittrick in The Independent today. Former lobby journalist Paul Linford has also paid moving tributes to Craig on The Journalism Hub and on his blog.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
