HERE’S your round-up of coverage I’ve spotted today.

After a quiet day, unanimity breaks out with everyone going for the line about David Blunkett and transcripts of intimate voicemails.

Phonehacking Trial, Day 7

AFTER near unanimity on the best ‘lines’ from the first few days of the trial, today seemed to mark the first day when papers chose different angles.

Always interesting when the press do this on any story as it gives you a little insight into how they think editorially and what they think will push their readers’ buttons.

Many of them spend a large amount of money and time finding out exactly what their readers think, do and consume and if a paper is well-targeted you can tell a lot about its readership from the angles it takes on stories and the stories it chooses for page leads, and the others it drops completely.

Anyway, here’s the coverage from today, enjoy.

Peter Jukes has been doing a great job livetweeting the trial and is now crowdsourcing funds to help him keep at it until Christmas – a very worthy cause.

That’s it for now. As ever, if you spot something superlative, give me a shout.

Phonehacking Trial, Day 6

Week Two of the trial and stories are still coming thick and fast.

It’s still the opening of the trial, which the judge has decided can be livetweeted and @PeterJukes is doing a particularly fine, comprehensive job. The line about codewords from the film ‘Where Eagles Dare’ proved irresistible in the early copy today.

Coverage today.

Broadsword calling Danny Boy – signing off until I see some later takes this evening.

Phonehacking Trial, Day 5

EARLY take on the coverage up so far on the phonehacking trial. As usual if more emerges later I will update.

The coverage has been pretty comprehensive this week, both online, in print, livetweeting and blogging. I think some predictions that the trial might be downplayed proved to be ill-founded.

It has been interesting for me watching site stats to see which links have been most clicked, and at this time of night, The Guardian outstrips the rest quite easily, even after I started handicapping it a bit by dropping it down the list. However, later on, in the small hours of the morning, sites like The Daily Beast, The Drum and Hacked Off come back strongly with a lot of visitors heading their way from here.

Anyway, coverage is as follows:

It will be interesting to see what, if anything, the Sundays do with this given that they don’t normally go for trial coverage as it will have been gone over thoroughly in the Saturday papers. I will round them up here if they do anything significant with it.

That’s it for now, an interesting week and more to come. Have a good weekend.
