According to Gorkana, the London Evening Standard and the Independent, both owned by Alexander Lebedev, are sharing the services of a journalist.
It reports: "Oliver Poole is currently on a four-month contract at the London Evening Standard and The Independent carrying out special projects. Oliver is a former Foreign Correspondent for The Daily Telegraph and Author of Red Zone: Five Bloody Years in Baghdad."
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.
