A few notable developments on the journalism front in the week just gone:
The Barclay brothers won control of the Daily Telegraph, although city analysts have their doubts about the deal. Still, they have to be better owners for the paper than Lord & Lady Black.
The BBC announced its new policy, post-Hutton, for news journalists. At the heart of it is a new journalism academy for all its 7,000 journalists. This should please me, but somehow I still feel uncomfortable about the whole affair. Sure, the standards of reporting at the Beeb, like everywhere, are a little shabby at times, but is self-flagellation to this degree necessary?
