HOLD THE FRONT PAGE... IT'S NOT GOING OUT WITH SOME SKANK ON IT...: Interesting piece by Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger in the MediaGuardian detailing the pangs felt by the New York Times when it put Britney on the front page; what's also curious is the insight he gives into the debate at the Guardian over whether they should have carried so much, so prominently about Kurt Cobain's suicide. His verdict is that it was right to, showing readers of the future that what was important to them was important to the Guardian, too. He hasn't stopped to consider that many of us who were wandering around blinking the Saturday morning after the body was found were already, actually, long-term Guardian readers.
