Polly Curtis highlights the massive fail in the Guardian’s Newsdesk live blog

by | 2nd, February 2012

NEWSDESK is the Guardian’s live blog of itself.
Each day on the Newsdesk live blog, the Guardian’s national news team will bring you the news as we break it, explain how we choose what we report and why – and ask you to get involved. Send us your ideas, evidence and experiences to help shape our coverage. Get in touch below the line, tweet@RobertsDan or @PollyCurtis, or email us at newsdesklive@guardian.co.uk.
One big problem: what newspaper will revel its lead story or scoop before its been published?
Indeed, as Polly Curtis writes:

One point I wanted to clarify is that the newslist above and the stories I cover in this blog will be breaking and live news. An extended newslist, which isn’t available publicly, has all our exclusives and plans for the next day’s paper in it.

That next day’s paper is a big problem for a live internet web 2.0 kind of company, isn’t it.
Doubtless a live blog debate on the live blogs will follow…
