The Barclays and the battle for the Telegraph – podcast

Ever because it was based within the nineteenth century by a British military colonel, the Every day Telegraph has been a mainstay of the British press. Its perpetual loyalty to the Conservative celebration has earned it the nickname the ‘Torygraph’.

However its explosive reporting of the MPs’ bills scandal in 2009 threw parliament into disarray, ending quite a few political careers on each side of the home, with some MPs ending up in jail. It earlier constructed a repute for struggle reporting, having been the primary newspaper to report the outbreak of the second world struggle.

In current weeks, because the writer and media columnist Jane Martinson tells Nosheen Iqbal, the paper has been involved with issues nearer to house: the more and more bitter tussle for management of the Telegraph itself, and the monetary state of its house owners, the secretive Barclay household.

It has thrown up huge questions of who owns the media in Britain – and for what objective.
