Media Guardian 100: Where's Nick Davies?

The MediaGuardian's always entertaining annual list of the 100 most powerful people in the media is out today.

But there is one glaring omission.

Why isn't the Guardian's own Nick Davies, the man whose phone hacking investigation led to the closure of the News of the World, Andy Coulson leaving Downing Street, humbled Rupert Murdoch, exposed the influence of News International on our politicians, sparked resignations at the top of the Murdoch empire and the Met Police and has prompted separate Government inquiries into the police and media behaviour, on the list... at number one?

A very good question Jon. Can't be just because he's a 'mere' reporter as Robinson and Peston are both in there.

Especially as Paul 'Guido Fawkes' Staines can get in at 47. I didn't realise making nasty / sniddy little comments and passing on right-wing 'gossip' without any regard for its validity (See current Morgan / Mensch spat) was so bloody influential.
