All the News That's Fit to Print

Some fodder for the post I'm eventually going to write about whether we're better off with or without the print media - a little seetype from Garth ' No Greater Fool' Turner,
"A year ago, as I related in my recent book, the real estate editor of a major newspaper who gave “Greater Fool” a full-page review (critical, but interesting) told me months later that was the kiss of death. After advertisers complained, he ended up on the overnight layout desk. The new real estate editor writes about funky paint colours and throw cushions.

But the sponsors left anyway. They smelled the smoke."
