    Trinity Mirror at the Assembly

    I attended the Culture Committee as a substitute yesterday - I'm no longer on it following the changes to Committees before Christmas - and was able to join in the questioning of Trinity Mirror.

    The BBC has a report of the session, and the Western Mail's report is here, a bit heavy on the management side I felt. The Daily Post, another Trinity Mirror paper, is more interested in what was said about it.

    Trinity Mirror CEO Sly Bailey's letter declining to come is here. The Western Mail management presentation is here and here.

    The NUJ paper written by Dr James Thomas of Cardiff University's School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies is here.

    The paper by Amicus is here.

    The Culture Committee will now go on to write a report on the issue, and there will be a transcript of the evidence. My Western Mail article from yesterday can be found here.

    Of course, as I said below and below, since the inital cuts were announced we have won a number of the things we were campaigning for.
