I must admit, my mind is going numb with all the new developments of late.
So an ex KGB Officer is interested in buying a newspaper in London, the Evening Standard - an afternoon and evening tabloid aimed at commuters, thats
currently making losses of £10 million a year.
My retorical question here is, WHY?? lol
There is much speculation as to Mr Lebedev's motives for wanting to buy the Standard. But perhaps there is some comfort in his comments after he
bought shares in Novaya Gazeta. "We don't plan to influence editorial policy but to boost objectivity," he said.
