Press Gazette To Close

Sad news from the world of magazines - the Press Gazette is to cease publishing after a troubled 43 year history. It had been rescued from administration in 2006 but when it transformed itself from a weekly newspaper to a monthly magazine last year it lost its voice. I'm terribly sorry for those who have worked so hard to keep it on the road. Their only consolation is that I don't think there is much else they could have done. The market just wasn't there. Full story HERE.

Pah.
It was an ill-written rag which would rather saw its own legs off and climb into a bath of salt than criticise the profession.
Sorry for those out of work, but tears shed over the loss of this thing - zero.

A sad loss for journalism.

Press Gazette was mainly there to advertise jobs that 1000s of wannabes would apply for but never get. Otherwise, it was shockingly dull, though I do admit to using archive issues to research an MA dissertation on the Daily Express...

“Never heard of it.”

It’s improbable anyone outside the journalistic trade would have.

If you’re a basketball player or basketball fan, I think you must have a good jordan shoes(or called air jordan shoes). The reason is known to everybody, not only beacause jordands shoes is a famous brand all over the world, but also there are many kinds cheap air jordans at the shop. At the same time, the cheap jordans are all good quality and beautiful. Mainly because cheap jordan shoes are also popular around the youngers. So, do not hesitate go to buy cheap jordans for yourself.
