The Quadrants’ description of the latest waffle seen at The Conversation, a one sided, partisan receptacle for the Green Blob media operatives thrown out from ‘their’ ABC and Fairfax journals.
Andrew Jaspan, 64, co-founder and executive director of The Conversation, was sent on forced leave last month, according to the Guardian, but not because of his site’s bizarre news treatments: […]
Two other factors were involved:
- Letters of complaint to the board from some of Jaspan’s Australian and overseas editors about Jaspan’his style and strategy – a reprise of the Age staff revolt against Jaspan in early 2008
- Top-level concern about Jaspan’s hell-for-leather expansion overseas, despite The Conversation’s shoe-string finances and dependence on taxpayers’ largesse.
As Jaspan put it with aplomb in his 2014 annual review, “Each year takes us by surprise. There’s no road map, and we are making our future as we go along.”
Haven’t believed a thing they’ve ever written, on the occasions I have unwittingly seen it. Fiction, and poor fiction is their forte. This is copying from the Bobama Democrat playbook on Alinsky.
