News > Comment > News

This is quite interesting. Digital Spy have posted a reaction story to Global’s takeover of GCap made up entirely of comments from their forum.

It’s something that is occasionally done as a side piece in print (think The Guardian’s views from the blog) or radio (“and we’ve been asking for your views”) but this seems like something a bit different – stories starting as “forums posters on x have reacted positively to…” aren’t all that common.

Digital Spy’s got a large following – about 3 million unique users and, according to them, the third largest entertainment news site in the UK – and their forum users are a little saner and more knowledgeable than most, but it’s still an interesting use of news values.

As an aside, as an one-time GCap employee, I’m fascinated to see where Global go. I really hope they don’t cut the number of local hours to save money.
