Stefano Hatfield in the Guardian: "Newspapers are crazy, newspapers spend so much money chasing a market that is not really interested in them, young people, instead of nurturing the audience they’ve got, that is, 50 somethings. I think they are just beginning to wake up to that, just beginning to change.”
Grey Cardigan @thegreycardigan on Twitter: "Is this really the front page of a national newspaper?"
Sean O’Neill, crime and security editor of The Times [£], : "Welcome to post-Leveson Britain — whose leaders march in Paris for free speech and declare 'Je suis Charlie' while at home they undermine the same principle. The buzzwords of our 'information age' are transparency, scrutiny, big data and 24-hour live feeds. The reality is that we face a blizzard of 'content' which is blinding us to the fact that we are being led by the nose into a sinister period of state secrecy, control and censorship."
The Daily Mail in a leader on Edward Snowden: The Mail is passionate in its defence of free speech, but this right has to be balanced against public safety and we remain convinced these leaks have seriously weakened Britain’s ability to protect its citizens. Snowden has made us all less safe and the Guardian, in its self-righteousness, has been his willing accomplice."
Roy Greenslade on his Media Guardian blog: "The supposed virtue of a journalism of the people by the people for the people is nothing more than a way of publishers maximising profit. Media companies are using the technology as a way of reducing labour costs rather than as a way of democratising, and thereby enhancing, editorial content."
Guardian readers' editor Chris Elliott on protests over the paper commissioning a piece by Kelvin MacKenzie on immigration: "My journalistic instincts tell me it is wrong to ban MacKenzie, not least because readers wouldn’t have read his admission that the Sun maligned minorities. But what I realised on re-reading the emails is that this may appear an indulgent, abstract view of the world to those whose lives were shattered by the deaths at Hillsborough and who have lived with it every day since. We acknowledge that."
