Apparently it’s the story every one else wanted. One magazine offered £400,000 and were knocked back.
And I believe them. The more someone refuses to talk, the more other tabloid reporters want it. It’s the basic instinct of a what Mr Murdoch would call ‘a journo.’
I realise I am out of the tabloid news loop, but I think it’s a bit of a damp squib.
I wanted a bit of classic Murdoch. The Murdoch this great quick documentary from Charlie Brooker’s 2011 TV Wipe.
I wonder what the sales figures will be. A respectable two million is certain to cheer the corridors of Wapping. Anything less will be a bitter disappointment.
And I wonder if, as the presses roll, there is any fear about whether they’ve got the Sunday market wrong. As my fella said: “Not even that little picture of Roy Keane on the front would make me buy it. Clearly for girls.
“I might buy it if it was Martin O’Neill though…”
I quite agree. A Sunderland Sun on Sunday would be great. But then we’ve already got the Sunday Sun for that.
