A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.
After Michael Jackson's memorial service on Tuesday, you could have bet your house on what picture would be gracing the front of the tabloids today. They've been waiting long enough for it - 12 years in fact.
After a series of scarves, blankets, you name it, being draped over their heads in public, Jackson's children have stepped squinting into the spotlight. (Stepped, or perhaps been pushed?)
"King of Pops" is the headline in the Daily Mirror, alongside the picture of Prince Michael, 12, Paris 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II - also known as Blanket - on stage at the service. Both the Mirror and the Sun make up for the previous lack of photos by stuffing their respective papers full of them. A taste of things to come for the Jackson kids? Unfortunately, yes.
Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph leaves little to the imagination with the photo chosen to illustrate a feature on raunchy reads for grown-up women. Wonder what search terms the picture editor used?
A young lady whose dress is in a state of some disarray reclines on the floor, surrounded by abandoned (in every sense) novels. Pages flutter. Spines are cracked. And hardback piles on top of hardback.
Gosh. Is it just Paper Monitor, or did someone turn the air conditioning off?
