MEDIA: PROFILE; Guardian of journalistic integrity: Alan Rusbridger, Editor, the Guardian
In PR terms the Neil Hamilton cash-for-questions scandal could not have
come at a worse time for the Conservative Party. They entered their
conference week surrounded by the stinging criticism of even normally
loyal papers such as the Sun and the Times but it was the Guardian and
its editor Alan Rusbridger who really struck the killer blow when they
went to war with Hamilton after he pulled out of his libel action.
