'Internet not the main problem for press, it's short-sighted management' says Peter Preston
Interesting quote from ex-Guardian editor Peter Preston in his Observer column todayabout the newspaper crisis. "The central problem isn't the internet (a dampener on profits and spreader of uncertainty, at worst; not the end of everything). The problem is newspaper ownership flawed by misplaced ambition and short-sighted management."
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
