The Press Gazette is reporting that Rosa Prince, a political journalist at The Mirror for the last ten years, is to replace Brendan Carlin as a political reporter for The Telegraph. Brendan Carlin is leaving for the Mail on Sunday.
The Telegraph’s recently-appointed political editor Andrew Porter said: "I am delighted Rosa is joining The Daily Telegraph’s political team. She has an excellent track record and will add a new dimension to the team." ‘What new dimension?’ will be a question on the minds of many Tories who have worried about The Telegraph’s friendliness towards Labour in recent times. ConservativeHome has been worried about The Telegraph’s editorial direction for some time (see here, here and here). Earlier this week Guido also voiced his concerns at goings-on at what he dubbed ‘The Daily Labourgraph‘.
