Desmond: driving papers to their graves

Roy Greenslade does not pull his punches in criticism of Richard Desmond who he says should take up a job as a comedian when he has driven the Express and the Daily Star into their graves.

Even if Desmond sold the papers now, after pocketing £27.28 million in salary and pension entitlements from his business in the last financial year, it is difficult to see how anyone could pull them round. When they die I just hope no one suggests they are victims of the rise of the internet. Newspapers can still die because they are crap.
