"The sight of two bald men fighting over a comb may be a good spectator sport for the financial press, but will only provide instability for the people trying to make sure there is something left worth fighting for." - Stuart Prebble, the former ITV Digital chief executive, on Greg Dyke's bid to take over ITV and oust Charles Allen

"As a parent, I don't think it should be sat next to Disney Princess. But this is a mainstream men's magazine.
