The Times’ big scoop, the George Bush interview, is dampened by the fact that the Guardian and The Indy have also seen copies of his memoirs, which are released in the US tomorrow. I would be suprised if The Times hadn’t tried to do a deal with Bush to secure that only they could see the memoirs before publication. If not they have negotiated a poor deal. The fact that the other papers have it means that online very little of The Times’ content will get out from behind the pay wall – people will just read the slightly less good version of the story on the Guardian website. The Times’ editors must be fuming that their splash has been so badly ruined.
