EASTENDLIFE – BACK TO IT’S OLD TRICKS!
A THOUGHTS OF MR BLOGGY SPECIAL:
There was recently an investigation into the life of the Tower Hamlets newsletter “Eastendlife”, and rightly so. There were questions raised about it’s funding and the way it seems to be used as an advertising platform for one individual.
It must have been a co-incidence that throughout the period of the investigation the Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman, kept a very low profile in the publication.
But – surprise surprise, now that all of the hoo-ha and investigations are over, it looks like we are back to seeing the real side of the Eastendlife. That is – it’s real purpose of advertising the Mayor himself. You can again clearly see on the 15-21 September 2014 edition, there is a photograph of Mayor Rahman on almost every page, including the front page, and where there is no photo of him, there is a story where he is featured. The only break you seem to get from him is in the advertising!
Could somebody please either get rid of this pretence of a newspaper once and for all, or change it to give residents real fair and unbiased news?
