Guest editors

The Independent newspaper has developed a habit of handing control to guest editors recently, with both Bono and Georgio Armani both playing editor for the day. This is an extreme promotional measure for a newspaper, and has been criticised by some. Today, the media section of the paper seeks to place its generosity with its editorship in some sort of context, with a run-down of magazines that have used guest editors for an issue.
