What the Telegraph has to say about Guido

The Daily Telegraph has published an article on the subject of Mr Paul Staines, aka Guido Fawkes.

As you will find after you have read it, the Telegraph has betrayed its core readership. It has taken to towing the Labour Governments line.

When Guido went to the Telegraph with his scoop on Damein McBride, what di they paper do. It didn't publish the story. It went straight to Downing Street and grassed him up!
Not just did they break reporter - source confidentiality but they actaul went to the government a wrote a story the government fed to them.

This is not the first such incident where the Telegraph has towed the Labour line instead of their own.
Surely there must be some right thinking people in that paper still?
