"A very interesting article. The element of trust in media parallels the trust - or lack of - in politics. As lobbying gets fiercer, neutral journalism becomes even more important. And the blurring of lines across business interests and journalism makes it all the more important for the outsider to have trustworthy sources of information."

"It is silly to blame BC Partners. Like blaming a great white for mauling a seal. Who bought the £200m of bonds so BC could pay themselves out? Unless dumb institutions learn how to deal with operators like BC this sad story will play out again and again."
