This week on Paperhouse: I’ve written about the trend for journalists to come from wealthy backgrounds and how that might affect what gets written and published; a new and brilliant broadsheet and a relaunched and brilliant news magazine; the value of news and comment for papers; how I fell out of love with The Observer; what happened at Richard Desmond‘s libel trial; and the ways in which news is and is not like a bagel, and what that could mean for the introduction of paywalls.
These are the top five most-read posts from the past week:
- Making the difference in reporting
- Save the Observer, 2003 edition
- Mirror’s Edge: Seeing Is Believing
- Eady’s errors
- Stitched up
And I’ve been listening to rattle-and-moan merchants of musical collapse, Royal Trux. See you after the weekend!
