Why music journalists are a threatened species


Rest assured that the mainstream media continues to set the standard. Three days after my article on the new Britten Studio at Snape, which included a photo of the auditorium, the Guardian gave its readers "an exclusive first look", without any photos. The Guardian's scoop was supplemented by a post on Charlotte Higgins' Culture Blog which continued her tradition of getting her Snape facts wrong. In her blog post the audience capacity of the new Jerwood Kiln Studio is given as 340, which is interesting as the size of the studio 10 x 9 metres. The correct audience capacity for the Kiln Studio is 60. Are you still surprised that music journalists are a threatened species?
