Not really a shocking expose, and it's from a left-of-centre news source, but still...

Yeah, not very shocking or surprising..no matter what side of the political spectrum. The independent is owned by a rich Russian now, from what I have understood...he is not a big centre/leftist either. One could even argue, are any of the major UK papers aligned to one side anymore?

Erm, yeah. Mail/Times/Telegraph/Sun/Express - right wing, Guardian/Mirror/Indy - left wing. I haven't seen much change in the editorial stance of the Indy, and I'm a regular reader.
