COMMENT: In June 2008 ABC News produced 10.275 stories per staff member. For June 2010 they managed just 7.074. This is a reduction of over 31% in the quantity of news stories in just 2 years. In real terms this means ABC News produced 3017 less stories in June this year than would have been produced had they maintained 2008 production figures. OVER 3000 LESS! That makes over 36,000 less news stories this year!
ABC News: doing less with more thus leaving its audience more and more mis-informed as the years pass by.
We invite ABC News to comment on the figures and explain where the missing news has gone.
