The size of church bells," responds RTÉ's Rick O'Shea. Especially when there's the Telegraph owners' £250m HSBC loan raising fresh questionsDean Baquet announces that the New York Times will retire its "system of pitching stories for the print Page 1." Also at the NY Times, Margaret Sullivan says James Risen's "epic rant" on Twitter will get no argument here.
