Telegraph timeout

Well, the Telegraph has had over 48 hours to mention the comments of Steve Field, which is more time than they allowed the allegedly leftwing press to mention a letter submitted to the telegraph - a failure the telegraph's chief leader writer described as "a complete and rather shameful silence." (1)

The result? Not a peep about Mr Field from the telegraph - in spite of the paper publishing two stories on the NHS in the meantime (here and here (2)).

Ooops.
1 - "The BBC reports the news – just as long as it suits its agenda," by David Hughes. Published in the Telegraph Blog, 11th of May, 2011. (http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/davidhughes/100087445/the-bbc-reports-the-news-%E2%80%93-just-as-long-as-it-suits-its-agenda/)
2 - "David Cameron to come out fighting over NHS reform," by Patrick Hennessey. Published in the Telegraph, 13th of May, 2011. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/8514236/David-Cameron-to-come-out-fighting-over-NHS-reform.html).
