This is an outstanding, must-read article by Peter Oborne, the former political commentator at the Telegraph. Check it out!

Let me quote an overview:
The coverage of HSBC in Britain’s Daily Telegraph is a fraud on its readers. If major newspapers allow corporations to influence their content for fear of losing advertising revenue, democracy itself is in peril.
With the UK deeply divided and public services cut to danger level, including defense and healthcare, it is deeply worrying to read of a major newspaper where the owners dictate editorial policy, with whitewash.
Following Peter Oborne’s article, I’m debating whether to cancel my digital subscription to the Telegraph.
