Perhaps I’m overreacting, but I’m shattered. Livenews.com.au is dead. The product of the 2GB newsroom which has grown in to arguably the best news website in the country on a skeleton staff, had the plugged pulled this afternoon.
This will require grieving. This will require serious adjustments to my online rituals…livenews.com.au is the only Australian news website which I visit regularly, with others being the result of searching for specific stories on Google News. This is personally devastating. News.com.au could disappear tomorrow and I wouldn’t care…but for livenews.com.au to die suddenly like this…
I’m starting to hope that this week is just some awful dream and that I will wake up before it spirals further.
Farewell livenews.com.au, your faithful combination of AAP material (which you kept in context, unlike some other places) and Macquarie National News material will be sorely missed.
(Thanks to Frank for the heads up…I wouldn’t have know for another hour or so otherwise)
