According to The Australian Financial Review yesterday, Fairfax has signed a new deal with Sensis (publisher of Yellow Pages and White Pages), which will see the classifieds section of Fairfax-owned papers around the country branded as Trading Post. In return, the ads will be given a listing on Trading Post website.
Our classies (Warrnambool Standard) have been converted to Trading Post.com.au, look bloody awefull and the layout is shocking.

I enjoy reading Neil's articles and his insight in the media sector. The problem is there was virtually no one at the AFR sharing his workload and he had to write almost every article for the media section in Monday's paper. (In comparison, The Australian has half a dozen reporters for the media section) He will be a big loss to the AFR.

The mining magnate Gina Rinehart is reportedly trying to significantly increase her stake in Fairfax media.
Fairfax media reports fund managers were approached after today's close of the Australian Stock Exchange to buy a 9.9 per cent share in the company, in a deal apparently worth $192 million.

I think for the Fairfax board to even considering not printing both papers on weekdays is ridiculous and show the dire situation the company is in. If the Herald Sun in Melbourne can still sell around 500,000 copies per weekday, then why can't The Age sell around 250,000-300,000 copies per weekday? I think Fairfax still doesn't get the message that both The Age and SMH are too serious and lack gossip (of the entertainment kind) and even their exclusives don't set the agenda like their rivals (Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph) do.

Why is Fairfax keep making silly decisions like this just trying to compete with News Limited?
