MediaGuardianis reporting today that Rod Liddle is no longer in the running to be editor of the Independent if/when it is sold to ex-KGB man Alexander Lebedev. There seems to have been more of an outcry about the possibility of Liddle editing the paper than Lebedev owning it.
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.
