Dateline: Mon 14 Jan 2008

Plenty of us are trying to figure out what went wrong at the Star Sunday to cause a repeat of stories, on-line apologies, 200 plus comments on TalkBack, etc.

As a Star subscriber notes:

"I have never, ever, in my many years of being around, working for, and

reading newspapers, in large markets and small, ever heard of a section page repeating itself from the day before."

Ye Gods. If anyone out there can fill us in on what went down, please do so.

One person said that perhaps this is a sure sign -- too much money is spent for top corporate salaries and not enough on the basic nuts and bolts of running the paper, let alone reporters. Your thoughts?
