A snippet in the media section of the Evening Standard a few weeks ago mentioned that Today (Eddie Shah's homage to USA Today) is to be revived by News International in a bid to go head-to-head with The Express. I wonder how much fury pornographer-in-chief Richard Desmond will vent if this proves to be the case.
Don't worry Richard if the newspaper business fails you can take your one-man reenactment of the Nuremberg Rally to the Edinburgh Fringe.
