Another buro bites the dust
Thursday 12 December 2019
I heard some disturbing news from the Colombo Reuters bureau the other day. Apparently the text part of the business is being wound up and only remaining is visuals/video production from end-December.
How unfortunate for a bureau that for many decades was staffed by such excellent newsmen like Clarence Fernando and Dalton De Silva with its copy being among the best of the best.
I wonder whether this is part of a worldwide exercise of cutting staff and resources in countries that don’t make a lucrative financial contribution.
