good argument by Vincent in todays Irish Times for a new "peoples" sunday funded by 50,000 citizens and a democratically elected gender balanced board - an FC Barca in the media. Vincent has form in establishing and running papers/magazines that have stimulated debate and promoted new writers and journalists and carried out good investigative work - Magill being the prime example. while sympathetic to the idea the history of the people investing in papers and getting no return is perhaps best illustrated by the irish press given Vincents suggestion, the question is, would you invest given the falling circulation figures and questionable future for newspapers in general.
