Fairfax Media has announced it will axe 125 editorial jobs in its metropolitan mastheads - a quarter of the editorial workforce in its metro division - as part of $30 million in cost-savings. At the same time, the company is preparing to spin off its real estate listings and publishing arm, Domain.

 

Already in recent years, Fairfax newsrooms around Australia have lost a wealth of skill and experience. For the editorial staff that remain, their workload has massively intensified, particularly as they are required to constantly write, produce and develop stories for a variety media platforms.

 

This can only lead to a decline in the quality and independent journalism for which newspapers like the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age are renowned.


Fewer jobs = fewer stories.

The wording of the letter above is just a suggestion. Feel free to add your own personal touches to the message you send to Greg Hywood. For instance:

  • Talk about how long you have been a reader and a family connection to the masthead;
  • Mention a story or photograph that had a big impact on you. It might be something that changed the way you think, or that touched your heart;
  • Refer to some of the big stories and investigations that the publication has undertaken that would not be possible with reduced staff.

It's really up to you what you say, but please avoid anything that could be considered offensive or aggressive.
