A little afternoon delight, and all the better because it's at the expense of the Molochians ...
At last it's been explained - why the incompetent reptiles are desperate for public help to improve a brand that stinks to high heaven in the marketplace ...
Yes there it is, still on the right, still begging and pleading, despite the pond having given all the advice to hand, and more ...
Meanwhile, Paddy Manning in Crikey confirms what everyone suspected, in Exclusive docs show News' Australian papers dragging down the empire ... (paywall affected).
Now the pond won't steal all of Manning's thunder.
You'll have to read him to read just how dire the situation for The Courier-Mail has become, while that ideological feast of racist ratbaggery and zealotry, the Daily Terror, has been a singularly weak performer.
No, let's just quote Manning on the performance of the reptiles at the lizard Oz:
Within the division, The Australian stands out as the worst performer: revenues dropped 20% from $135 million to 108 million in 2012-13, while operating income fell 41% from a loss of $19 million to a loss of $27 million. After depreciation, the masthead’s operating loss fell to $30 million.
Remember when the reptiles were berating Media Watch and strutting about cock a hoop like cockerels on heat?
Without the HUN, the pack of cards would have taken even more of a beating, but what a beating it took anyway:
News reported that earnings before interest tax depreciation and amortisation from Australian newspapers fell by US $67 million in 2013-14, or $73 million — which by Crikey’s estimate represents roughly an 80% fall on the previous year, nearly wiping out the division’s entire operating income. The division dragged heavily on the news and information segment, which reported a 16% drop in EBITDA in 2013-14.
Naturally Manning couldn't resist linking to a tweet from the epic twitterer, and the pond simply can't resist running it. What with all the bonus feedback:
It seems the reptiles have even taken to talking about green shoots on the Nullabor.
Some shoots. Haters gunna hate, and fun-lovers gunna hate the haters hating ...
There you go Molochians, you can use that feedback to fix your rag, courtesy Mr Hilliger and Mr Richards ... hope it helps you improve things ...
And now for a bonus. The pond is finding it hard to keep up with all the mis-statements, retractions and confusions surrounding jolly Joe.
This was run yesterday:
Hint to reptiles - this was available for free on the news.com.au site, and what do you know, it didn't even have a gold brick attached to it.
What you gunna do punks? Shut down news.com.au?
And sure enough a meme quickly followed.
Hint to reptiles - sorry yet?
