Is the workers' trust that is aiming to acquire a stake in Independent Newspapers a crazy idea or could it actually fly? As the Irish parent company, Independent News & Media, is casting around for buyers for SA's largest newspaper group, Business Report's Ann Crotty - who is one of the founding trustees of Independent Trust for Media Freedom - tells Bizcommunity how the trust is working, why it's getting a better reception in SA than in Ireland and what she believes must be done to save the resource-starved South African group.

The 155-year-old Cape Argus entered a new era when it changed its format from broadsheet to tabloid (though it's being called a 'compact' format) on Friday, 9 March 2012, and also moved into the morning market.

As an editor/copywriter, the biggest thorn in my backside is the client who emails an 80-page document with the brief, ‘Please have a look at this.' [I can visualise those of you who share my industry nodding your heads supportively.] So it's time I distinguished between these different skills and the different accompanying costs. Hopefully, this'll serve to a) enlighten the clients out there and b) help my fellow wordsmiths to clarify what clients get in return for what they pay.

The absence of women in news stories globally, in public affairs and serious magazines and media's over-sexualisation of women, and women's under-employment by media organisations all amount to a symbolic annihilation of women by media and should be stopped at all costs, delegates attending this week's 2008 Gender and Media Summit on the Gauteng East Rand were told.
