Comment is F***ed?
Trouble at t’Guardian blog mill, says Guido:
Guido hears a rumour that since Comment is Free has flopped (some geeky critical acclaim, but financial failure due to trivial advertising revenue) it is going to be “revamped”. Ben Hammersly is, Guido understands, spearheading the new not-so-secret project.
Interesting if true. It’s by far the most prominent blog launch from a UK newspaper, and if it’s struggling we’d do well to understand why.
**UPDATE: **Officially denied by Ben Hammersley. That’s good news.
