The AFR–size does matter

I see David Llewellyn-Smith over at the “Houses and Holes” blog is having a good spray about the quality of AFR journalism.  On a related topic, some years ago I attempted to find another country whose major financial newspaper appeared in tabloid format.  WSJ? No.  FT? No.  Nikkei? No.  Luxemburger Wort? No.  The wonderful Svenska Dagbladet? No!

Is this still the case?  Have those wacky Luxemburgers gone tabloid on us?

There’s clearly more to tabloid journalism than the shape of the paper, and I for one felt that the mighty organ that is the AFR took a turn for the worse as soon as it changed from a broadsheet orientation.
