Dr Mumbo

Journalism’s new front line

Imagine a media world that has reached the point that when two journalists match on Tinder, they both write about the date for their individual publishers.

Dr Mumbo is both disturbed and fascinated to note that the time has arrived.

Mamamia’s Rosie Waterland, and news.com.au’s Matthew Dunn have entered that new frontier.tinder-matthew-dunn-rosie-waterland

Over at Mamamia, second billing on the site goes to “Rosie Recaps: The epic Tinder date she went on last night“.

Meanwhile, getting second billing over on the news.com.au site is “I matched with Rosie Waterland on Tinder and went on a date to see if we hit it off“.


The big news, as far as Dr Mumbo is concerned, is not so much that they made out, but that they agreed an embargo on when they would file their copy.
