Bad news for those thinking about subscribing to The Australian, according to these remarks it published today:
…just $1200 a person. When you think about it, this is probably the equivalent of a two to four-year subscription to a pay-walled media site. In fact, it would get you 2.9 years’ worth of The Australian’s complete news package.
$1200 for 2.9 years of The Australian. BARGAIN.
Elsewhere in the same article, the amusing conflation of “editorial independence” with “owners telling editors what to print”.
I’m so glad a journalist at Rupert’s Folly had the freedom to write something like that.
