Differing views from the Evening Standard media section on Patience WheatcroftÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s exit.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Last nightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s departure of Patience Wheatcroft as editor of the Sunday Telegraph came as little surprise to her staffÃ¢â‚¬, reported Roy Greenslade.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Surprise among staff at the Sunday Telegraph that editor Patience Wheatcroft has departedÃ¢â‚¬ was how media diarist Gideon Spanier put it. He said she had been Ã¢â‚¬Å“noticeably cheerfulÃ¢â‚¬ at conference on the morning of her departure.
On the subject of media columnists apparently not knowing what is going in their own paper, Axegrinder must mention Peter WilbyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s column in The Guardian this week.
In a piece about newspaper prices Ã¢â‚¬’ in the wake of The Times going up by 5p last week Ã¢â‚¬’ he neglected to mention that The Guardian had gone up by 10p.
Announcing the rise on Saturday, The Guardian said it Ã¢â‚¬Å“remains committed to investing in quality journalismÃ¢â‚¬.
