“More of the same but better”: new business motto at Postmedia

Well, here we go again. Postmedia pres Paul Godfrey is moving news into the internet age, arming reporters with mincameras (hope he actually trains them in videography; the Aspers just dumped cameras on reporters’ desks and told them to go out and shoot) and multitasking them. Didn’t we hear all this in 2000? At least he didn’t use the phrase convergence, but the same bilge is there: multiple platforms, advanced deadlines. And in his pic he’s looking more like Izzy Asper than ever before.
