The subs strike back

The strike by Fairfax Media journalists didn’t take long to make itself felt on the front page of today’s Sydney Morning Herald which went to press with a howler on the front page headline.

Today’s edition of the SMH features the headline: “Household debt a threat to ecomomy”.

Sydney Morning Herald and The Age journalists went on strike on Wednesday for seven days in response to an announcement that 125 full-time jobs are facing the chopping block.

Of course, for non-striking journalists on sister title The Australian Financial Review, it might look a lot like business as usual.

Who says you don’t need subs or a well resourced editorial team?
