New Sindy: An Opportunity Missed

Whatever I was hoping for from the new look Independent on Sunday, it didn't deliver in spades.

Like its daily companion it is (at least) a beat behind every other paper in delivering the news and creating so-called supernibs of old news doesn't make them any more up to date.

Some bloggers and commentators have said it is now a magazine. By this they seem to mean it is full of fluffy features and self-indulgent columns, but that's not a magazine, that's just bad journalism whatever the platform or genre.

Had the proprietors and editor been really courageous and made it been more like The Week or Time or Picture Post (and after all the early Independent used photographs very well), adding some incisive reporting and analysis into the mix, it could have been something really new.

An opportunity missed.
