After yesterday’s Expo debate, a big reaction on the web. Roy Greenslade reports on the debate in his bog, airily dismissing arguments opposed to his as “bellyaching”. And he opts not to link to the arguments he dismisses, including mine, which demonstrates a certain lack of web etiquette imho. Press Gazette reports the debate, giving great prominence to Roy, and reporting those who agree that subs are an irritant the industry can do away with. They choose not to report the alternative point of view I put forward at the same event. It’s difficult to make this point without sounding self-important, but it’s frankly bloody annoying.
Some more constructive debate, though, on the Subbed Out site, well worth checking out.
