May’s homepage reviewed

Posted by Paul

A quick look at what you were clicking on last month and also what riled you.

Boris Johnson toppled Ken Livingstone to win the London mayoral election and you flocked in your thousands to read about BoJo’s triumph and Gordon Brown’s misery.

Not surprisingly, there was great interest in the first all-English Champions League final.

The eagerly-awaited Grand Theft Auto IV was released and it actually lived up to the hype. A series of fine articles from our Tech team gave it the lavish coverage it deserved.

Indy 4 also came out in May and although many loved it, there was no shortage of criticism. As well as the usual review, trailer and galleries, we took a look at director Steven Spielberg’s greatest hits.

There was no shortage of comments regarding our coverage of The Apprentice in our inbox last month, or more specifically, our decision to regularly disclose the winner on the Friday after each episode. The following was perhaps the most vitriolic. 

‘You idiots, you went and did it again! I haven’t watched The Apprentice yet after being on nightshift all week and taping it, then you tell me that Sara got fired. Thanks for spoiling it for me’, screamed one irate user.

Yes, we did it again and I’m afraid we will continue to reveal the result. Unlike most other news sites, we do not disclose the winner on Thursday, the day following the show.

However, on Friday, two days after the programme has been screened, when we are often promoting an exclusive interview with the losing contestant(s), we think it reasonable to reveal the result.

If users record the show with the intention of watching it several days later, it’s probably best they avoid all news outlets, including MSN.

For this week’s final however, we will reveal the winner on the following day simply because it is a major entertainment story and we think it is apt to have the winner’s image on the homepage, so apologies in advance for that.
