Stephen Glover: What Mail Online could teach its rivals

Media Studies: Online newspapers which don't charge can be profitable, and their success need not be at the expense of print

Stephen Glover: Cut the World Service and it's Britain we harm

Media Studies: Is the government machine too rigid for anyone to admit that a sillydecision was made during last autumn's spending review?

Stephen Glover: When is an advertorial not an advertorial?

Media Studies: Times may be hard, but editors must fight to preserve the distinction between editorial and advertising

Stephen Glover: Economies are a reality even the BBC must face

Media Studies: The economies the BBC is belatedly having to contemplate were accepted long ago by other media organisations

Stephen Glover: A good newspaper but not a good business

Media Studies: The Times is really back to where it was before it started the price war in 1993

Stephen Glover: Patten and Cameron may be on collision course

Media Studies: In other circumstances I might admire someone with an aversion to TV, but it doesn't seem an ideal qualification in a chairman-designate

Stephen Glover: Jeremy Hunt is the fall guy in this deal

Media Studies: The interesting question is whether the decision to let Mr Murdoch have his way will affect the Prime Minister's relations with the rest of the Press

Stephen Glover: Annual profits of £878m – and now they're all his

Where Rupert Murdoch is concerned, it is hard to have a rational debate. There are many in politics and the media who have made up their minds that he is a force for evil. They will quickly conclude that the deal on BSkyB unveiled yesterday will significantly increase his media power and the sway he has over British politics.

Stephen Glover: Assange may yet come to hurt The Guardian

Media Studies: The Guardian may not regret getting into bed with this seemingly awful man, but it certainly has no intention of being caught lingering there

Stephen Glover: Why Labour is still reaching out to Rupert Mudoch

Media Studies: Ed Miliband's new director of communications has spent much of his working life in one guise or another at the Murdoch-owned Times

Stephen Glover: 'The Sun' can't conceal this scandal forever

Media Studies: Until recently, the Daily Mail also made little of the phone-hacking scandal

Stephen Glover: Does Cameron dare to disappoint Murdoch?

Media Studies: Either accepting or rejecting the bid would have uncomfortable consequences for Mr Cameron

Stephen Glover: If Murdoch's so bad, what about Desmond?

Someone calling himself Henry Porter posted a comment below my column last week. It obviously wasn't Henry himself. He would never write in such a coarse way, and would be the last person in the world to accuse me of being "a bit dim" for holding the views I do about Rupert Murdoch, as this rough impostor did. I have written before about the need for vigilance so far as newspaper websites are concerned, and this case only proves my point.

Stephen Glover: Attack Google too, if you value privacy

Media Studies: Google may provide an invaluable service but it actually produces nothing much of value
