Is this Business Day’s best?

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.

In the meantime, competitors such as Fin24.com and Bloomberg News have killed the story. There will be nothing left for Business Day’s print edition tomorrow.

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.
