The Conservatives bribe newspapers for favourable coverage

New testimony from the Prime Minister’s former chief aide shows how the free press has been bought by the Government. “Newspapers negotiated direct bungs to themselves with Boris Johnson” says Dominic Cummings. These bribes were dressed up as a “special subsidy” arrangement for the mainstream press that began in April 2020 and was called ‘All In, All Together’.

Budgeted at £35 million for the first three months it still appears to be operating two years later.
