Was going to run a full post on the impending West sackings, but I’m losing enthusiasm already. Who cares? ALL of their opinion writers are terrible. MyNing wants Paul Murray,Griffin Longley, Roz Thomas, Andrea Burns, Kate Emery sacked, and yes, they are all awful, but then you’d have to go past Stephen Scourfield and Malcolm Quekett who manages aginst all odds to to make Inside cover as interesting as Mark McGowan. Just get rid of all of them. Except, they will probably keep the opinion writers and sack the actual journos.
The only guy they should keep is that Reuter dude. He just does straight news with the sparsest copy, is always on the spot and is not always going on about how he is being discriminated against because he doesn’t want to have children. Give Reuter Inside Cover as well(Greenwood: Ironic sign seen. Reuters.) and since he’s in a different country every day, he might as well take over Scourfield’s travel section…but…no.
…I’m going to put my time instead imagining a mashup of In Cold Blood with First Blood, (First Cold Blood) in which Sylvester Stallone tries in vain to rescue the Clutters (played by Dawn French) and mumbles in a Capote style high voice when he is on death row falsely accused of their murders.
