Stephen Glover: Not the result that The Sun wanted

Media Studies: The ferocity of its attacks on Mr Brown were counter-productive

Stephen Glover: Times' losses won't be tolerated forever

Media Studies: Rupert Murdoch has heroically endured losses every year since he bought the paper in 1981

Stephen Glover: Tory papers aren't acting in unison

Until last week the so-called Tory newspapers had been as bored with the election as the voters

Stephen Glover: The future of the free press will rest on Murdoch making us pay

In a way, one can't blame Gordon Brown for saying that paywalls won't work.

Stephen Glover: Press battle lines are reset – but who gets the BBC's vote?

From the moment he was elected Tory leader in December 2005, David Cameron developed a new media strategy.

Stephen Glover: PCC did not prove Liddle got it wrong

Last week the columnist and former Today programme editor, Rod Liddle, was censured by the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) for writing a blog on The Spectator's website in which he claimed that the "overwhelming majority" of violent crime in London was carried out by young Afro-Caribbean men.

Stephen Glover: This paper now has a chance to break even

The Guardian's coverage of last week's sale of the two Independent titles to Alexander Lebedev was characteristically charitable. By that I mean characteristically uncharitable. The paper highlighted Mr Lebedev's past as a former KGB agent, and suggested that the sale of the papers for one pound to such a man was somehow a betrayal of their original values.

Stephen Glover: Giving in to online gagging campaigns is a dangerous move

Eight days ago a cavalcade of motorbikes trundled through the Wiltshire town of Wootton Bassett in aid of charity. They were raising money for Afghan Heroes, which helps service personnel in Afghanistan and bereaved families in Britain.

Stephen Glover: Did this beauty cause us to drop our standards?

The blogosphere is awash with crazy people with made-up stories. Last week, some of them mistakenly claimed that a man called David Calvert is really Jon Venables, one of the killers of James Bulger. More than 2,000 people joined a group determined to track him down. Mr Calvert was wrongly accused of being a rapist.

Stephen Glover: Cash for content: is the Guardian as pure as it claims to be?

The Guardian has been chiding other newspapers for not taking seriously its "revelations" about the News of the World and telephone hacking. Not for the first time – My God, no – the newspaper climbs on to its pedestal and looks down its nose at the rest of Fleet Street, which it judges less scrupulous, less virtuous and less committed to fearless journalism.

Stephen Glover: This time, will it be The Sun wot hung it?

David Cameron is in some difficulty. The Tories are worried about their shrinking opinion poll lead. Maybe a hung Parliament beckons. Maybe even worse. Who can say?

Stephen Glover: There’s one part of the news-stand that’s still doing serious business

The printed word is dead, we are often told. It is certainly having a hard time in national and regional newspapers, nearly all of which have been losing sales at a dramatic rate. But the printed word in magazines is in a much happier state.

Stephen Glover: This acquired taste for scooping red-tops could be a risky strategy

Over the years The Sun and its sibling, the News of the World, have published a great many sexual exposures. If there were a Palme d’Or for running such pieces, these two would vie with each other year after year, and no other newspaper would come close.

Stephen Glover: A ruling that puts claimant lawyers on the defensive

Last Friday’s ruling by Mr Justice Tugendhat which led to revelations about John Terry, the England captain, astonished lawyers and the media.

Stephen Glover: Newspapers will not be put in the dock over their Iraq war coverage

In the course of the Chilcot inquiry I have sometimes asked myself what it would be like if journalists, rather than politicians and civil servants, were under the cosh. How would we fare? I wonder whether any editor or columnist would be absolutely happy to have his record on the Iraq war examined in forensic detail.
