Dominic Ponsford's Best of 2008

Dominic Ponsford, editor of Press Gazette, picks his Best of 2008 .

Best old/trad media of the year: Mail on Sunday is my favourite newspaper of the year. Roger Alton is my old media editor of the year.

Best new media of the year: twitter, which after initially being sceptical of I have to admit is quite useful and drives a reasonable amount of traffic to our site. Though I've no doubt many would say twitter is SO 2007.

Story of the year: Max Mosley's Nazi sex orgy (that obviously didn't have any Nazi connotations at all M'Learned friends) it had everything - dominatrices, whips - everything except Nazis.

Prediction for 2009: News organisations will start working out how to make money from online.

Tomorrow: It's the man who designed The Independent and is launching a new paper in India. Don't miss Michael Crozier's Best of 2008.

Rest of the Best of.. so far: Paul Linford, Adrian Monck , Grey Cardigan , Jean Morgan, Steve Busfield, Neil Fowler, Ian Reeves.
