sun-gf

After some 150 columns and articles co-conspirators will have noticed that there was no Guido Sun on Sunday column this week. After 3 years our tabloid toil has come to to an end…

We enjoyed the challenge of writing a very different product for a mass market tabloid audience, though we won’t miss the deadline stress of sweating over our column all day Friday. The discipline of having to write tight, straight-to-the-point copy is tough. It is a cliche that it would be easy for The Sun’s journalists to produce The Times, whereas the writers of the “Thunderers” would find it much harder to successfully do “Sun Says”. That is Guido’s view having written both…

Order-Order.com is expanding in terms of both output and staff numbers, as ever our efforts are focused on breaking more news on the site first. We also have a few surprises in store for readers. Our winning formula of Westminster tittle-tattle, gossip and hard news still means that: You’re either in front of Guido, or behind…

Alas SunNation, We Knew It Well

sunnation

Farewell SunNation, the Sun’s outside-the-paywall experiment with a blog format has now gone with the raison d’être of the paywall. This again brings into focus the future of tabloids now it has been established that in the age of social media paywalls for popular papers are counter-productive. As far as Guido knows no mass market tabloid in the world has successfully made the transition to a digital model.

Digital first sceptics point out that for all the traffic success of Mail Online and The Guardian, they don’t really make much profit. In the case of the digital Guardian they make no profit. That is because undifferentiated general traffic does not command a high premium from advertisers. Also free online versions inevitably cannibalise the print readers…

Digital first optimists argue that there is no choice other than to deliver content where people increasingly want it, to their phones and tablets. And deliver it fast and first if you want to succeed. 

How will we make any money ask the digital sceptics? If paid subscriptions don’t work for tabloids in the digital era will it be Buzzfeed style advertorial? Video ads? Product placement? The digital first optimists point out that tabloid print sales are collapsing and soon they won’t make money either…

TABLOIDS

The Mirror is contemplating a cut-price, slimmed down version of the paper along the lines of the i, The Independent’s successful cut-down version. The more successful print innovator is actually the London Evening Standard, London’s now free high-quality evening paper is brimming with advertising. Could a tabloid thrive on advertising revenue alone? Metro and City AM show that advertising-only supported papers can be viable. It is possible that a national could go free, double or triple circulation, and suck up more than enough advertising to make up for the lost cover-price revenue. Guido noticed that last weekend the Sun on Sunday was distributed free in some places in Ireland…

Indy Buries Front Page Cock-Up Confession

Gotcha!” exclaimed Tuesday’s Indy splash, exclusively revealing that the Sun had been “told” to put an “apology” for a story about Jeremy Corbyn on its front page. The top scoop revealed how “The Sun was ordered to publish a front page correction“. Just one problem: ironically, this holier than thou story on press ethics was itself inaccurate. IPSO did not order the Sun to put an apology or correction on page one. Today’s Indy admits they got it wrong:

The Sun newspaper has asked us to point out that it was not instructed to “apologise” for its front-page story on Jeremy Corbyn by the Press watchdog Ipso, as we claimed on our own front page yesterday. In fact, the Committee of Ipso ‘required that a reference to the adjudication to be published on the front page, directing readers to the full adjudication.

So, did the Indy make a reference to their incorrect front page headline on today’s page one? Alas not, the only mention of it is on page two. See if you can spot it:

Of course, they declined to join IPSO so they are under no obligation to carry a reference on the front. Please, give us more of your lectures on press ethics…

Met Breached Sun Journalists’ Human Rights

A Sun spokesperson said:

“We are pleased that the specialist Tribunal has today ruled that the Police’s actions in secretly accessing the telephone data of The Sun and three of its journalists was in breach of our rights to protect our confidential sources. Today’s outcome vindicates our concerns that our rights to protect confidential sources on matters of significant public interest – such as “Plebgate” – are at risk unless the law is now changed to protect all journalists from unfair and unnecessary Police intrusion.”

Final proof RIPA needs serious reform…
