Macca hits out at British pressDecember 4th, 2007 - 6:16 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Dec 4 (ANI): Sir Paul McCartney has slammed the British press - insisting it lacks integrity.
In an interview with The Chicago Tribune, the former Beatle said his rapport with the media has changed significantly since the beginning of his career in the 1960s.
According to him, American reporters are more pleasant than their British counterparts.
“In the 60s, I used to have a pretty good relationship with most of the guys in the media. But I used to call them loveable rogues. I’m now not quite so sure about the word ‘loveable’, Contactmusic quoted McCartney, as saying.
“You guys don’t have it as bad over there (in America). You have your trashy little celebrity magazines at the supermarket checkout, but your newspapers still have some integrity,” he added. (ANI)
