IN BRIEF: The Times on Coulson

Obscure journalist resigns from political job

There is coverage across several pages of today’s Times about the Coulson affair. These I have audited as follows:

1. Articles mentioning Rupert Murdoch 0

2. Articles mentioning Newscorp 1 (By Matthew Parris, who is not on the staff)

3. Articles mentioning Andy Hayman, former cop and Times columnist 0

4. Articles saying it will soon blow over 3 (Including the Leader)

Just goes to show, doesn’t it: would a weakened BBC and a dominant Newscorp owning all of BSkyB be a good idea?

Probably not. Let’s see what the M&MC have to say about the deal.

Update: Sky News about to break story about phone hacking on other newspapers.

Just fancy that……
