Not many Victorians buy The Age. But soon they’ll all be funding it:
Monday will see the launch of a new section in The Age: Creative Media, we think. The section, the brainchild of editor Andrew Jaspan, has been on and off so many times we wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t come out. But the idea is to cover media, advertising and the arts and to promote Melbourne as a centre of creativity. It grew out of a dinner last year held by the Committee for Melbourne, and is supported by advertising from the Victorian Government.
Various ethical issues are raised by this. Let’s see The Age’s Media Blog fearlessly address them.
