Abstract

Reaction to Gordon Brown’s appearance at the Leveson inquiry has mainly consisted of political journalists expressing shock at his high moral tone and flawless recollection of a spotless past. But let’s leave the former Prime Minister’s reversioning of history and look at what Gordon says is his main concern, the conflation of fact and opinion. I think he’s right to spot a trend, but wrong to think it causes the bilious state of politician/journalist relations.
