Best old media: Daily Telegraph - can be no other.

Best story: MPs' expenses.

Best journalist: Will Lewis - for keeping his nerve and buying the MPs' expenses raw data.

Prediction for 2010: A staged swap of some regional newspapers to force the Government's hand over ownership regulation ( I said the same last year - but it's got to happen soon!).
