Good Lord. Talking of internal memos to staff, here is one sent out today by Roger Ailes, chief executive of Fox News. Unlike Jerry Yang’s, Mr Ailes’ memo is written with meticulous clarity, as befits one of the great media communicators (I make no judgement about the message, just how it is expressed).
His message to staff is: Quit whining and, if you don’t like working here, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Actually, there is no need to paraphrase because that is pretty much exactly what he writes.
