Working on an article about the media war that broke out with the phone-tapping scandal in Britain –you know, the one that brought down News Of The World.
No one really questions who reads these crappy papers. (Typical front page story in NotW: “F1 boss has sick orgy with hookers.”) So I am sure there are very few who moan the loss of the ‘red tops’ as there are referred to in the industry.
I found a great project (the mock up is his on left) by Adam Westbrook, a journalism lecturer who asks “If you edited the final News Of The World, what would your front page be?”
The Time cover below, by the way, is real.
