Our gossip columnist once spotted Alan Rusbridger reading a newspaper

Good to see the Guardian back to its old ways – a day after leading the front page with Trafigura, they run a front page story about how the media are obsessed with celebrity culture, with a nice big picture of Amy Winehouse. I’m sure they’re telling themselves it’s ironic.

The real irony comes in this part of the story, though:

One, a far-fetched account about a plan by anticapitalist protesters to dump a tonne of sugar outside the private residence of Lord Alan Sugar, the millionaire businessman and presenter of the BBC show The Apprentice, was never printed, despite calls to the Daily Mail, Mirror and Sun.

I mean, who would expect tabloids to print completely made-up stories about threats to Alan Sugar?
