Sir Paul McCartney has launched a scathing attack on the British press - insisting U.K. newspapers "lack integrity". The Beatle insists his relationship with the media has changed drastically since the beginning of his career in the 1960s, and believes U.S. journalists are more likeable than their British counterparts. In an interview with The Chicago Tribune, he says, "In the 60s, I used to have a pretty good relationship with most of the guys in the media. But I used to call them loveable rogues. I'm now not quite so sure about the word 'loveable'. "You guys don't have it as bad over there (in America). You have your trashy little celebrity magazines at the supermarket checkout, but your newspapers still have some integrity."
