Tim Ireland has more on the unfolding events in the Usamanov takeover of Arsenal Football Club. He accuses various sports journalists of taking hospitality from Usmanov (visiting him in Moscoe, all expenses paid) without mentioning the fact in the resulting articles.
If a politician did THIS, they'd get chucked out of the House of Commons. Isn't it about time that journalists conformed to the same standards of integrity which they expect politicians to? They may not be elected, but it is arguable that their influence is greater than an insignificant backbencher.
If I were an Arsenal supporter I would be very worried about what is happening to my club. Very worried indeed.
