pounds 350,000 deal exposes the murky world of chequebook journalism

JAMES HEWITT, a former lover of Diana, Princess of Wales, was said by friends yesterday to be still hopeful of finding a newspaper to serialise his memoirs after the collapse of a pounds 600,000 deal with the Mail on Sunday.

Any old Sunday?

The highly successful `Mail on Sunday' has been relaunched. It's certainly new, but is it improved?

Letter: Is the hunt antique pageantry or sentimental sadism?

A FOX dies instantly when it is caught by a pack of hounds, claims Roger Scruton. On the following day the Daily Mail printed an account of a cat that had been savaged to death by a pack of hounds. It certainly did not die instantly. It must be a very clever hound that can tell a cat from a fox.

Media: Analysis: `Mail' shrugs off Diana effect

LAST YEAR, everyone from radio stations to retailers blamed the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, for a downturn in business. Now, for perhaps the first time in its relationship with the late Princess, the newspaper industry can claim the same thing. September 1997 will for ever be Diana month, and September 1998's sales figures look terrible when compared with last year.

Dacre makes move at Mail

THE HOUSE of Rothermere yesterday moved into a new era with the replacement of Mail on Sunday editor Jonathan Holborow with Peter Wright, the deputy editor of the Daily Mail.

Obituary: Viscount Rothermere

VERE HARMSWORTH, the third Viscount Rothermere, was an exception to any number of rules, most notably that newspaper dynasties seldom survive the second generation. Associated Newspapers, and its flagship the Daily Mail, were founded a century ago by his great-uncle, Lord Northcliffe, and still remain in the family. Under Rothermere, the Mail and its Sunday sister have come to dominate the lucrative middle segment of the newspaper market.

Rothermere, the last press baron, is dead

LORD ROTHERMERE, chairman of Associated Newspapers and scion of the last great press dynasty, died of a heart attack in London late on Monday at the age of 73, just three months after the death of Sir David English, editor-in-chief of Associated's Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Evening Standard.
