Redirected from Daily Telegraph
The Telegraph is known for its right-wing politics. Within this classification it takes a roughly central position on the authoritarian/libertarian axis. It is less traditionalist and more libertarian than The Spectator but more traditionalist and less libertarian than The Economist. Personal links between the editorial team and the leadership of the UK Conservative Party (the Tories) vary in strength but the combination of these links with the paper's influence over Conservative activists result in the paper often being jokingly referred to as the Torygraph.
Its editors in recent years have been the renowned W.F.Deedes, Sir Max Hastings(1986 - 1995) and Charles Moore (1995 - )
The Daily Telegraph is owned by Hollinger Inc. of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the newspaper group controlled by Canadian businessman, Conrad Black. Hollinger Inc. also owns the Chicago Sun-Times, the Jerusalem Post and other right-leaning publications such as the "Spectator," a weekly magazine edited by the British Member of Parliament, Boris Johnson.
