Politicians from all parties have always as a relationship with the media
Politicians from all parties have always as a relationship with the media and it is no secret that different tabloid newspapers either support Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrat. In a democracy there are no problems with that, newspaper are run by human beings and they have a right to support whichever party they believe have the best policies to manage the country effectively.
However, the dynamics change when favours are being sought in order that the party is seen by the public in a more favourable way. It taints the credibility of both the media and the politicians involved.
The Prime Minister stating that there were no covert deals with Rupert Murdoch media empire, might be the truth but the events of the last few months would tend to disagree with his statement, whether there were covert deals or not the implications of a deal and the subsequent parliamentary vote to clear Hunt make it appear to the public that there is more than meet the eye. The fact that, following the vote there will be no investigation in Hunt’s conduct does not mean that he has been exonerated because once your are tainted speculation will always be around as to your guilt or innocence, that is human nature.
