The chief executive of the Guardian has quit after losing a battle with editor Katharine Viner over the future of the left-leaning title.
In a fight between the business reality outside that window and ivory tower progressivism the loser is – reality!
We could have predicted this from reading the comment pages, couldn’t we?
Ms Thomas is said to have favoured a more prudent approach after losses were stemmed by pandemic job cuts. Ms Viner is viewed as the spearhead of newsroom demands for reinvestment.
A GMG spokesman said: “Annette has renewed GMG’s strategy, working with editor-in-chief Katharine Viner, increasing investment in journalism, digital products, and other areas.”
We’re only losing £16 million a year. Spend more!
