Quote of the day: “If the free market is indeed the moral courtroom which its admirers claim, then what a judgement is being visited on Fleet Street. What a pack of failures the editors must be! No artistic director of a theatre could survive such a plummeting loss of income and popularity without being sacked by their board. Surely it must be, according to those iron laws of the market which newspapers have done so much to propagate, that consumers are today buying fewer newspapers because those newspapers are poor products!” (David Hare’s Mere Fact, Mere Fiction)
