The Irish Times – Conor Pope – Oct 31

Veteran foreign correspondent and author Robert Fisk has died after suffering a suspected stroke at his Dublin home. It is understood the journalist became unwell on Friday and was admitted to St Vincent’s hospital where he died a short time later

 

Remembering Robert Fisk: A mentor

The veteran reporter taught me an important lesson: ‘Tell the story, whatever the consequences.’

There are still votes left to be counted, but The New York Times is finished counting its third-quarter numbers, and we can project a winner: The Times now, for the first time, generates more revenue from its digital subscribers than from its print subscribers. And its total count of subscriptions passed 7 million for the first time last month.

As of Sept. 30, its number of digital news subscribers was up 45.9 percent over the previous year. Even better were its “other” digital subscriptions (mostly Games and Cooking), which were up 63.6 percent. (That nomenclature is a change, by the way: What the Times has for decades called “Crosswords” is now broadened to “Games” in the company’s filings. Spelling Bee remains on the march.) Print subs, meanwhile, were down 3.9 percent.

Latin America and the Caribbean recorded 40 percent of of the total killings registered worldwide in 2019, UNESCO says.
