Ian Hislop
on the secret of Private Eye’s circulation success: “Trying to buck the trend and do investigative journalism, rather than say it is expensive and nobody is interested, because I think they are”.

Why The Sun’s Steve McClaren kiss-and-tell front page shows the legal balance is swinging away from privacy. According to lawyer Mark Stephens:  “These sexually incontinent footballers and their managers can’t expect to continue to have no regard to other people when they’re chasing women, or in pursuit of women, and then go in hot pursuit to the stand with a writ if they get caught out by the newspapers.”

Spoof blogger “Steve Dorkland” on why he has decided to halt his anonymous parody of the Northcliffe chief executive: “When the subject
of a parody is funnier than the parody then it’s time to quit….”

An in-depth report on the race to launch Britain’s first 20 local TV channels.

Paddy French on investigating one of the UK’s most successful investigative journalists – Mazher Mahmood: “The ‘puffing’ of Mazher Mahmood’s successes continued relentlessly throughout the reigns of Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson.”

And The Independent’s Kim Sengupta on how to stay alive in Syria – the most dangerous place in the world to be a journalist:
“The obvious thing to do was not hang to around with large numbers of rebel fighters for too long, not to stay in particular areas for too long and although the shelling and air strikes were random, there were certain times when they were less frequent than others and it was a case of using the time to maximise how much you can cover.”
