IN its glossy colour magazine, The Sunday Times yesterday carried an eight-page feature – ‘Hold the Front Page, I want to be on it’ – which described how bright youngsters, especially graduates, will go to almost any lengths to get ‘their foot in the journalistic door’.

Interesting timing, given how the paper’s publishers last week announced it was going into consultation with a view to shedding almost all of its Scottish editorial operation.
