Top stories in the latest issue:

NOT SO INDEPENDENT...
The Independent rails against the "pearl-clutching over the UAE bid to buy the Telegraph", without mentioning the Gulf influence in its own back yard.

A WOMAN SCORNED
The CEO of Abu Dhabi's International Media Investments got to make his case for a Telegraph takeover in its own pages, but he didn't cover himself in glory.

FAT CAT BOUNCE
The accounts for the Mail's publisher showed that the highest-paid director made £6.2m last year – which will interest the newly redundant Mail hacks.

BATTLE OF WILL
The Washington Post's advertising department appears to care little about the political fairness and independence on which its editorial staff rely.

CLICKBAIT CORNER
The latest evidence of Reach titles' insatiable thirst for online clicks arrived with a deeply misleading headline about Esther Rantzen's euthanasia plans.

FRONTAL HEADACHE
The Sun's illustrated history of male nudity on TV neglected to mention how the paper responded to a naked sex scene in Channel 4's Queer as Folk in 1999.

NAPA VOLLEY
The Sun shrieked about underpaid staff at the likes of Greggs and Currys last week – but some of the rates News UK itself pays have not risen in 40 years.

WHAT'S UP DOC?
After the last Eye noted the surprise reappearance in the media of plagiarist Dr Raj Persaud, a clue arrives as to why he might be keen to pick up extra work.

PARTING 'SHOTT
Isabel Oakeshott's search for a "part-time personal assistant/housekeeper" ended in disaster when the woman she hired quit after just 10 days.

PAYWALL GAMES
Having introduced a partial paywall, MailOnline has decided to keep comments open to everyone – which makes discussions even worse-informed than before.
