One thought on “Rinehart’s pitch for Fairfax board: why it’s going wrong

    Give us a break. The Fairfax stock has tanked. They’re probably about to report giant financial debacles. The board is in disarray. They don’t know what to do (sell radio? buy web sites? cut staff? hire staff?) and have hired about a dozen bunches of consultants(!)
    Gina’s just shaking them down. And she’s clearly making headway. (And don’t you love that funny story in the Oz about how the board has a secret pact about not interfering with editorial.)
