The Trireme -
Mail Online and The Times

A trireme

The Trireme is awarded for what one freelance called the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars".

We continue this month with our series of national newspapers and their websites paying poorly. We note the Mail Online has two months in a row paid at least one freelance £40 for a page lead. This month it's joined by The Times, reportedly paying one journalist an unimpressive £140 for a news page lead of unspecified length. Could do better!
