@Andrew_Zammit Maybe they will. They’ve been hiring some good people, like @marnicordell as the new news editor the other day.

via TweetDeck in reply to Andrew_Zammit

Absolutely none of this is to detract from the fine work some Fairfax journalists are doing. I’m talking about the factory, not the staff.

via TweetDeck

@myriamrobin That I didn’t know. I really should explore Politico further.

Why would I read about a train crash in Boston at the Sydney Morning Herald, focusing on the death of a Aussie backpacker, not rail safety?

via TweetDeck

Why would I read a dumbed-down version of a story by a general reporter two days late when I can get the global specialist on day one?

via TweetDeck

Personally, I think the idea of the Great Big News Masthead that’s everything to everyone will fade away.

via TweetDeck

Maybe I should point to Politico as an example. Doesn’t it have more journalists in the White House than anyone else right now?

When MH17 was shot down over Ukraine, six journos were first in. One was from Buzzfeed.

But Buzzfeed is growing, and does solid hard news. Like this feature, “60 Words And A War Without End”. buzzfeed.com/gregorydjohnse…

via TweetDeck

No “perhaps” about it. I think it’s about time people stopped all the focus on sinking ships. twitter.com/therevmountain…

via TweetDeck

What you say is true. I’m talking about Fairfax today. But newspapers in general are Industrial Age factories. twitter.com/MelbourneBitte…

via TweetDeck

Indeed, there are good journalists. But why do they imagine that a sinking steamship can be rebuilt as an airliner? twitter.com/therevmountain…

via TweetDeck

There’s many newly-constructed media factories growing nicely. Most will fail, of course, but on the scale of decades some with thrive.

via TweetDeck

Meh. Depends how you count Fairfax, as a set of factories or essentially one. Pluralise the words if you like. twitter.com/MelbourneBitte…

via TweetDeck

The great age of newspapers has lasted, what? Say 150 years. Don’t obsess over its end. Newspapers were a creature of the Industrial Age.

via TweetDeck

The SS Fairfax was holed long ago, and is slowly sinking. It’s just a matter of how many lifeboat of redundancy remain before there’s none.

via TweetDeck

My sympathies to people losing their jobs, but to conflate the collapse of one dying media factory with the death of journalism is bollocks.

via TweetDeck

Clearly @edyong209 is part of the cover-up, @expectproblems.
