Listener reaches a new low
The Listener with Princess Diana on the cover. Nothing much more needs to be said.
Pamela Stirling as editor of the Listener has been a destructive disaster. She has proudly taken the Listener downmarket, with the senseless aim of making the Listener just yet another meaningless 'lifestyle' magazine. The last vestiges of investigative journalism have been excommunicated, as quality writers like Gordon Campbell and Bruce Ansley have run out the door.
Occasionally a freelancer might get a good story in, but I suspect this is only when the lifestyle pontiff is not looking.
Rather than inflict editorial terrorism on the previous good name of the Listener, why didn't Pamela Stirling just apply for the Women's Weekly job?
