Meanwhile, today’s Sydney Morning Herald carried a full page open letter to readers from Fairfax metro CEO Jack Matthews for the third day in a row. In the letter, Matthews said: “We’ve been humbled this week by your tens of thousands (literally) of messages of support for our independence and the role we play in your lives. Every time you buy a paper, visit our sites, use our apps or place an ad you help us deliver the important stuff that no-one else does.”
