The Daily Telegraph purges staff.

A black day for experienced staff at the Telegraph. Swathes of reporters sacked, Damien Thompson has ‘amicably’ split.

The Telegraph online was my most trusted source of news, the journalism put every other paper to shame. Recently I had been noticing a slight downturn in the quality of reporting but the idea that a paper would sack or force out such a large number of highly experienced staff in a single day is still a shock.

It looks like I might have turn to for my news in the near future, especially if the Telegraph makes an ill advised final lurch to the left. Its already been making moves towards the squishy, and thoroughly over subscribed, political center as it is. Sad times. Especially sad that Damien Thompson has left. The Telegraph blogs section was the only bastion of Catholicism in the secular media thanks to him.
