Typical Private Eye. The Guardian's love-in with the magazine over its 5oth anniversary celebrations includes a free Eye comedy record promotion and buying 50 subscriptions to give away to readers. The Eye responds by dumping the Guardian in the Street of Shame in its 50th anniversary issue with a story about the Guardian Media Group's tax arrangements.
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.
