Media and ethics continued

See People's media by Pratap Bhanu Mehta in Indian Express on 23 Jan, and the comment by Jayanth Varma on the previous post.


  1. The Financial Times editorial yesterday on the conviction of Martin Lukes (former chief executive of a-b global and Financial Times contributor) for insider trading is illuminating:

    "Mr Lukes has written for this newspaper since 1999. So readers might have expected the FT to support a campaign on his behalf. Not at all. We welcome the chance to show that London is serious about tackling white collar crime."

  2. I understand Martin Lukes is a fictional character conjured up by Lucy Kellaway of the FT.
