In my previous post, I said that Business Day “regurgitated” Anglo American’s statement on the company’s far-reaching restructuring, which included axing two senior South African executives. Turns out I was being charitable to Business Day. The story on Business Day Online was in fact the statement from Anglo American, verbatim. The “story” was still on the website at 11:30pm.
If this is the best Business Day, South Africa’s premier business daily, could do on a story of great importance for South Africa, the newspaper has to start thinking seriously about its online presence.
