    I found this a much better read than Killing Fairfax - possibly because it goes closer to the coalface (quoting actual journalists) rather skirting the boardrooms of the rich and famous.

It left me feeling more pessimistic than ever about the future of the major Fairfax papers. The company has suffered at the hands of too many blinkered business people who cared more about making money than producing newspapers. It's infuriating they didn't see the internet coming. I can't see enough qualified people left to operate the pumps. I read a paper the other day from a journalists' forum in the 1970s, during which one of the keynote speakers said: "A newspaper is as important to a house as the front door."

    A good history of Fairfax by Ben Hills (disclosure: he's a mate), who was recently inducted into the Melbourne Press Club Hall of Fame. Ben put a lot of work into this book and it's very readable. Recommended.
