Sidelined Guardian CEO “Keen to Explore New Opportunities”

andrew-millar

The official line is that GMG CEO Andrew Miller will be standing down as chief executive and leaving Guardian Media Group at the end of June because he could not give the board a long-term commitment:

GMG and GNM are now embarking on the next major transformation programme and the GMG Board understandably wants a chief executive who is able to see that process through over an extended period of time. Given my desire to move to new challenges, I was unable to give the GMG Board the assurances they were seeking in this regard.

Miller was responsible for the cynical tax strategies that saw hundreds of millions in revenue producing Guardian owned assets held offshore in the Caymans tax haven whilst simultaneously the Guardian campaigned against the practice in editorials. The shifty tax strategies kept the Guardian afloat and built an endowment that will allow the paper to lose money almost in perpetuity. Hypocrisy in print and pixels…

Insiders say that in reality Miller’s been being sidelined for a while. David Pemsel, his deputy, is the super smooth ex-bullshitter for “brand consultancy” St Lukes, and a former ITV marketing director, is thought to be most likely to succeed him if the board hires internally. “Imagine what Pemmo could achieve if he wasn’t weighed down by all that self-doubt” one Guardianista told Media Guido archly…

Today’s Sun Page 3

Page Threedom

threedom

A few months ago Guido had dinner with the editor of The Sun David Dinsmore and asked him about Page 3. His view was that as long as the market research said his readers wanted it, The Sun would run it. Has the research changed or has the No More Page 3 campaign’s success in gaining support from the likes of the Girl Guides risked making the brand anathema to 51% of the population? Guido suspects the reasoning – if indeed it is actually the case that Page 3 has been discontinued – is a mixture of both.

Ending Page 3 would give a victory not just to people who never buy the newspaper, it would give a victory to people who would rather Britain’s most popular paper didn’t exist. Laurie Penny, the former stripper turned left-wing feminist pundit, summarises that view succinctly:

Mind you, the quality of Laurie’s media analysis is revealed in this tweet:

She appears to think newspapers can have an odd number of pages…

UPDATE: You can see today’s actual Sun page 3 here. Note well the bottom of the page…
