Guardian Editor Rusbridger in Private Eye

Private Eye, No. 1153, 13 March - 16 March 2006, page 5

While other newspapers gave plenty of coverage to the latest news about Tessa Jowell and David Mills this Monday, the Grauniad buried it at the foot of page 6. But it did run a cartoon on the op-ed page portraying the culture secretary as a blameless victim.

One would expect nothing less. David Mills and Grauniad editor Alan Rusbridger are good friends, regular dinner companions and occasional golfing partners, who both have weekend cottages in the same Gloucestershire village. And Tessa Jowell's best friend, who she first met at Edinburgh University many years ago, is Lindsay Mackie - Rusbridger's wife.
