Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's a thing that they seem absolutely shocked when I point it out to them that if you're punting the government line then you're not holding them to account.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

It's worth considering that parts of the Press (e.g. Paul Dacre, Mr Murdock) are actually incredibly powerful figures in our politics. Really, holding them to account is crucial. So, it's not just a question of punting the government line - are you punting the Dacre line or the Murdoch line, without questioning it?
