Daily newspaper


Everyone's saying

Duffy has succeeded in winning over even the most hardened of sceptics in the newspaper publishing community (they'd have preferred an old-style bruiser or, even better, no-one at all) by producing some persuasive initiatives. But times remain tough for the nationals, with circulations fragile and a new freesheet war could open up old fault lines. It may take considerable charisma on Duffy's part to hold the NMA together.
