How the Tories won the general election air war

theguardian.com — There was a point in the election campaign - can you remember it? - when the Conservatives were struggling. Their solution was to come to the Guardian: offering at 5pm that Friday evening an authored piece by George Osborne.

guardian.co.uk — James Murdoch, Rupert's youngest son, was among those on the Champs Elysées on Sunday afternoon, cheering home the first British winner of the Tour de France. That was fitting, because while his successor as BSkyB's chief executive, Jeremy Darroch, was in Team Sky's backup car, caught on ITV punching the vehicle's roof in delight, it was Murdoch, a keen cyclist, who was critical to sustaining the media group's £10m-a-year sponsorship commitment.
