By John Harrison, published 11/3/2013

In "Tabloid or compact: who cares?" John Harrison (Online Opinion, 11 March 2013) looks at the change in the size of the printed Fairfax newspapers. As he points out the more significant change is the move to online news. However, the other part of the change is in the production process, with the gradual move to one virtual newsroom producing all the papers for one publisher. With this approach, Fairfax will produce essentially one newspaper, then be customized slightly inserting some local stories for Sydney and Melbourne readers to produce the Herald and Age.
