Life imitates art

One of the best gags from The Thick of It came from a harassed Daily Mail night editor being messed around by the source of his front page splash: "It's not like we're the Independent. We can't just stick a headline saying 'Cruelty', and then stick a picture of a dolphin or a whale underneath. That's just cheating... it's rubbish".*

This is the front page of the Indie on Saturday September 5.

*NB: That scene wasn't a strictly accurate representation of how newspapers are put together. But it damn well got to the heart of what life is like in the engine room of journalism.
