A Long Stretch

For reasons far too complicated to go into this post is being blogged from the Exec Lounge of the Gateshead Hilton where there's a splendid view of sunshine on the Canny Toon and free newspapers.
I've just picked up one of these. 'Conrad Black faces 10 years in gaol' the headline screamed.
I picked up another. Black faces 20 years it said.
Then I noticed a copy of the FT. Conrad Black gets 35 years.
Clearly, the day just keeps getting better and better.

He screwed the journalists and others who worked for him, and he screwed the stockholders for whom he ostensibly worked. Shed no tears.

does the severity of the putative sentence correlate with whether Black used to own the paper?
