Media briefs: Part of doing business … RA cuts … bleak futures …

How Fairfax benefits from prostitution, and other media tidbits of the day.

‘Part of doing business’. So says the opening of a multi, erm, platform Fairfax piece, about businesses using strippers and prostitutes to please or entice clients. Hardly an earth-shattering scoop, so why would this AFR derived article grace the front page of The Age online? Let’s just say the photo for it wasn’t of a fully-dressed businessman swiping an Amex card. Stick a twenty down the front of Greg Hywood’s pants, if you see him — he’s got an ancient media organisation to support.

Elsewhere Fairfax proves a little naif about such things — with the travel section running an agency story about the decline of the nudist movement in Germany, as measured by the fall in regular members of its nudist FKK — “Free Body Culture” — clubs.

    So The Sun uses a 4 year old boy’s pic to scream Satan on the front page to sell fish wrappers.
    Sad, but predictable.

    Then Crikey repeats…. Why?
