Bravo! Bring on Sybil the Soothsayer

Not since over four decades ago in 1976 when UBS Network was discussing adding Sybil the Soothsayer to its evening news in the wonderful film Network has there been such a stunningly innovative, splendidly brilliant and strategically visionary move as Thomson’s (I leave out Reuters’ name for the sake of decency) decision to bring on a “storytelling editor”.

What a shame that nice Mister Rogers is no longer with us to take up the challenge. ■
