From the close of polling on Thursday night, the tv news programmes have been competing to provide the best coverage. Neil Midgley of the Telegraph and Emily Bell of the Guardian look back at Thursday night and Friday morning, particularly the BBC's boat party on the Thames. Which broacaster won?

The Sun's Trevor Kavanagh looks back at his attacks on Nick Clegg before the coalition. Does he stand by what he wrote?

David Elstein looks at the the way the coalition will affect the media. Are the Conservative and Liberal Democrat policies too far apart?
