Why specifically the shut down, couldn’t a different approach have worked?

Modified on Mon, 15 Apr 2024 at 12:01 AM

We have tried to highlight the state of the crumbling journalism sector to our readers, in discussions with business leaders and in suggested policy changes to government. It didn’t work. 

We needed to do something that we have never done since we launched in 2009; something that was drastic enough to highlight the crisis to the public. Shutting down Daily Maverick is not something we ever wanted to do. Our effort today is in the hope that we will never have to do it again.
