Liz Jones condemns 'absurd' freebie culture on fashion magazines

The Independent today publishes an interview with Mail writer Liz Jones, describing her as Britain’s best known confessional journalist.

Interviewer Deborah Ross speculates that Jones is paid upwards of £250,000 a year and reveals that she receives between 4,000 and 6,000 emails and letters from readers a week – which sounds like a phenomenal amount.

Jones reveals that one of the reasons she was sacked as editor of Marie Claire magazine was because she listed all the fashion freebies she’d been offered that month, “which included a week on a yacht in Capri from Todd’s, the handbag people”.

Jones tells The independent: “It’s all absurd, if a Westminster reporter took money from the Government or a football reporter took money from a club, it would be a scandal.”
