Same old, same, old

Piers Morgan's new look Press Gazette: worth the bother?
I like the way that "genre" news has been grouped together again (just like the relaunch before last) but I am not impressed by the new (old, or very old) columnists or the "let's interview Piers and Matthew's mates" Q&A.
The regular about relaunches, giving the views of the editor or designer, was a very interesting part of the old PG, but it has been swept away.
Does Max Clifford need another outlet for his self-promotion? I don't think so.
Will Sir Clement Freud say anything interesting about restaurants? Let's wait and see, shall we?
And why axe one feeble gossip column only to replace with something possibly even more feeble? And definitely more nasty, in a vicious, not amusing, way.
Lads, the old Fleet Street is dead and gone. It's time to move on.
