Kelner Up and Out at Indy

Simon Kelner has been promoted out of editing the Indy. He will take the title of Editor-in-Chief, but have no day-to-day control over the paper. Chris Blackhurst, currently the business editor of the Standard, will take over after thirteen years of Kelner.

Given the appointment was made by Evgeny Lebedev, the Indy and Standard’s Russian billionaire owner’s son, isn’t it time for the Indy to scrap the “Free from Proprietorial Influence” nonsense from their front-page?
