Demise of The Bulletin (letter)

by Nicholas Partridge

News Weekly, February 16, 2008

I shall not miss The Bulletin, though once I might have, and wrote as much tonight to The Australian (January 25, 2008).

Most of the time it had become boring, uninspired and dull - even parochial. It dripped along behind every conceivable orthodoxy.

I like to think - and hope - that News Weekly might now move into a large part of that market that The Bulletin once had.

Whilst it is probably a fact that News Weekly's Catholicity is an obstacle to widespread acceptance, I wish it were not so.

There has never been any equal to News Weekly in Australia when it comes to writing about issues at depth and originality.

If it had ever been judged fairly by the intelligentsia of Australia, these truths would have been self-evident if controversial. Nevertheless, there is now a new opportunity, and I encourage you to address it.

Nicholas Partridge,
