The big boss of our paper will be changed shortly. Mark Clifford, will go to South China Morning Post, the rival of the Standard, as the group editor-in-chief. I wonder if it is always the rule for most people working in the Standard. Standard first, and then bigger one SCMP.
Many reporters in our newspaper left for SCMP in the past day, after SCMP reporter left for news wires or PR companies. Newspaper, to me, has already been a cliche business, where it could just live with the last breath.
But newspaper is still a big part of the media which you could see the real readership. I suggested my boss to open a Chinese news website to attract mainland Chinese who live in Hong Kong that day. Then he asked how it could make money even if the site got the readership. Good questions. Online media couldn't only live supporting by the advertisement, I always believe, but then what could they depend on?
