A bizarre feeling of deja vu every night at the moment. Again the Times, Indy and Guardian try to tell the story of Libya without having a correspondent there while the Telegraph makes a point of ignoring the story.
Libya is the story of the moment but what is interesting is that none of the nationals have anyone in Benghazi or even Tripoli. This is because all Visa requests are being turned down so anyone trying to get there is struggling. To make things worse the Libyans are interfering with internet and television signal, so Al Jazeera is also down. So tonight’s papers all, bar the Telegraph, splash with a story about Libya written largely in London.
The Telegraph and The Times battle it out for the best defence cuts story, The Indy has the aftermath of Egypt, the Guardian has the man who trained the 7/7 bombers being released and the Mail leads with illegal immigrants claiming benefits.
The word of the night is surely ‘clings’ with the Times, the Indy and The Guardian all using it in their headline. The Telegraph and The Mail stick with their policies of ignoring Egypt, with the Telegraph going with state school pupils at top universities and The Mail declaring victory over Europe.
The Times has the failure of the Big Society, The Indy has a good investigation from Robert Fisk, The Telegraph has Eric Pickles ranting on about waste, The Daily Mail has the end of the ASBO.
The Guardian and the Indy are desperate not to put Egypt on the front page but have nothing better to replace it with, while The Times goes the other way and bumps Egypt up. The Telegraph continues to revel in its Wikileaks dump.
