David Cameron met Murdoch execs five times in runup to BSkyB bid
Source: The Guardian

David Cameron met Rupert Murdoch or his UK executives five times between April and June this year, according to documents released by No 10 late on Friday evening.

The documents show that the prime minister met executives of News Corporation or its UK subsidiaries, including News International and News Group Newspapers, more times than all other media groups in the period.

James Harding, editor of the Times, met the prime minister twice for "general discussion" in April and June 2011. Dominic Mohan, the Sun editor, met Cameron in May, for the same stated reason.

The prime minister also attended the News International summer party and the separate Times CEO summit in June 2011. During this period Murdoch's News Corporation was in the final stages of bidding for BSkyB.

The Guardian seems to be even more lame than usual today.

That's public information which only the Guardian have found exciting enough to publish.
