At the start of the week our man in Poland sent me a link to the Croatian outlet who interviewed Nikica Jelavic. I mentioned the player in an article yesterday and recalled his earlier comments, which I referenced as background information. This ‘news’ was subsequently carried by today’s radio and print outlets in Scotland.
It’s maybe a low blow to bring out the ‘Lazy journalism’ point on the day Scotland’s formerly-largest newspaper shed journalists, although the point is perfectly illustrated, but lazy journalism always found its place in the past. The real problem has little to do with the standard of journalism on offer, it’s about business models in the old media. News doesn’t pay unless you can tax consumers or bundle it with paid-for football channels, which is not a good thing.
