Rupert Murdoch moves from humble pie to outrage, this week’s Press Gazette – Journalism Weekly

By Dominic Ponsford

David Dinsmore last week became the tenth editor of The Sun and the first, in a very long time, to give an interview to Press Gazette.

Predecessors Dominic Mohan and Rebekah Wade in particular almost never spoke publicly to the media.

In this week's Press Gazette – Journalism Weekly he tell us why he is backing Page Three and how he plans to steer Britain's best selling newspaper into the digital age.

This week we were also given an unprecedented insight into what his boss Rupert Murdoch really thinks about paying off public officials after Exaro published a full transcript of his March meeting with 20 arrested Sun journalists.

The transcript also reveals the anguish felt by journalists who are facing ruin for, as they see it, simply doing their jobs to the best of their ability.

Murdoch told them: "I will do everything in my power to give you total support, even if you are convicted". Five pages of in-depth reports.

Other highlights from this week's Press Gazette include:
