|Greenwich Council version of the "Yawn Peterborough"|
Newspeak, 'quotes' written by the PR team, faces airbrushed from history - what it was like to edit a Townhall Pravda

Colleagues on the newspaper dubbed ‘Pravda’ by its opponents were ordered to remove my bylines from stories already on pages - and the council quote in the story that followed in the local News Shopper referred to me not as a former valued editor but as “this person”.
Anyone who wonders if the ‘Pravda’ tag is accurate will get the point.
