So Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is bleeding money and he’s had to take a pay cut – a bloody big pay cut. So what does he do? He wants to charge for his online ‘news’, which is usually anything but news.
Not my serious Aussie media crew here; when Mudoch left here and became a Yank Fairfax won the crown. Well Fairfax were talking about charging for big ticket news, the expensive deep stuff few of us read anyway.
Fairfax has now cut right to the quick and simply stopped their daily online cryptic crossword!!! Damn their eyes! They say, if you want it daily buy the paper! Fair crack of the whip, much as I love solving a cryptic I won’t buy a fish wrapper to get to it.
Now I guess my rage is a little cryptic for North Americans who don’t value the mind teasing cryptic crossword, but it sure as hell means war here in Australia. I still think – (1 across 4 letters) It’s shitty when a high note leads modern music genre. Answer – CRAP!
