Woroni awash with cash?

creative_canberran 18 March 2013 5


Had to laugh seeing this. A story in Woroni about changes to student accommodation at ANU, but the photograph included in the story is clearly not of anything at ANU nor in Canberra. It’s a stock photo from Shutterstock (thank you TinEye), where prices for downloads start at $49 and subscriptions start at $249/mth.

Given Woroni’s new custom built offices are directly opposite the Unilodges in ANU Exchange, they must have a healthy bottom line if it’s cheaper to buy an image online than point the camera out the front door.

Woroni doesn’t even make good toilet paper!

Nothing surprises me at ANUSA anymore. I actually don’t think they have any idea how much money they have at all – especially when you consider that someone has ‘allegedly’ ripped them off to the tune of somwhere between $60-100 000, but they’re not really sure of the exact figure!

Never mind, I’ m sure it could never happen again……..

This, by then way, is the same organisation which failed to uncover Victor White’s emulation of Craig Thomson across ANU, Inter Sports and Woroni itself.

Woroni’s staff are a world unto themselves. True enough, many of the editors and sub-editors are decent people. But a cross-section of them are unaccountable, arrogant hacks who operate not based on journalistic merit but ideology, self-aggrandisement, sycophancy, nepotism and ego-driven personal politics.

Sounds like the standard of Woroni hasn’t improved much if anything since the 1980’s, which was the last time I read it.

Unless they didn’t pay … which would be theft … which would mean a lot more than $49 in payment demand

Uh, like most companies or organizations the ANU would have a subscription to a photostock service through their media and communications team. Woroni wouldn’t be paying for this…

It is however incredibly lazy to not just go outside and take a photo.
