The Media Briefing: I love digital media. . . but where have all the journalists gone?
I've done a piece for the Media Briefing about how I love digital media but am concerned about the consequences of so many journalists losing their jobs - and asking how many editorial staff are digging out news and how many repackaging it?
As I was writing it, Newsquest announced six jobs were going in Swindon and Oxford, CN Group in Cumbria announced up to 29 redundancies and Trinity Mirror revealed it had made the editor's post on the Paisley Daily Express redundant.
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.
