A different view..?

IT’S already the most crowded newspaper market in the UK or Ireland (and possibly even further afield) with, what, 17 daily papers on NI’s shelves now? Seems there’s room for more though, with ex-Sunday People journalist, Ex-Mirror NI editor and ‘Stakeknife’ co-author, Greg Harkin, in charge. The new ‘compact’ (ie it’s a tabloid), Daily View, is expected to be out on April 4 – or was that just Greg’s ploy to spook the Belfast Telegraph, which is also going compact on weekdays around the same time…!

A new weekly paper based in Coleraine will be launched the same week.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
