The decline of Fairfax

The decline of Fairfax Dear Editor,

There are enough books around that have charted the disastrous management decisions over the years of this once great organisation. The current Bay Posts attempt to be a 'feel good' web site with lots of groupie photos just adds another disaster to the list! How long it will last is anyone's guess but I, for one, would like my money back. The Beagle is a welcome alternative. But who is going to check and question the media releases? One in your current edition about the CT scanner at Moruya should be asking "will it be the right size , or is it one for small people that the larger sized Australian can barely fit into" . The "Positive signs for Eurobodalla’s economy" media release from Council is the typically useless bit of misleading information from the ESC saying that 228 dwellings have been approved in 2016. Conveniently forgetting to say that 407 were approved in 00/01 and 445 in 02/03 and 236 in 05/06. Feed them crap just seems to continue on and on.
