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:
Press Association (on MSN here, also available on BT and on homepages of Newsquest, Johnston Press and Trinity Mirror)
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.
