Keeping tabs on the tabs

Tabloid Watch does a great line in disassembling sensationalist news reports. It recently came up with this league table showing how many times the TPA was quoted by national newspapers over a two-week period this summer:

Mail - 28 times
Express - 28
Telegraph - 20
Sun - 12
Star - 11
Mirror - 9
Times - 4
Independent - 3
Guardian - 1

Go check out the blog yourself - two other good entries referencing the TPA are “Express front page inspired by Littlejohn” and “PCC rejects complaint against Mail story, despite the evidence”.
