What's good for the Goose.....

Private Eye editor Ian Hislop has accused the BBC's Andrew Marr of
hypocrisy after he admitted taking out a controversial super-injunction
while working as a journalist. Mr Marr, the corporation's former political
editor, won a High Court order in January 2008 to silence the press
following his extra-marital affair with another national newspaper reporter.

Mr Hislop, who has been fighting the so-called gagging order and
challenged the injunction only last week, condemned the suppression
of reporting as "a touch hypocritical" today. "As a leading BBC interviewer
who is asking politicians about failures in judgment, failures in their private
lives, inconsistencies, it was pretty rank of him to have an injunction while
working as an active journalist," he said.
