Nyhedsavisen Officially Number One
Today was a FANTASTIC day for my newspaper – Nyhedsavisen is now officially number one in readers in Denmark. Dont mix it up with being number one in profitability – but its a VERY VERY good start 4 weeks after taking over. Im still feeling trouble in my stomach when I think about the 180 people we have fired – but its time to move forward. Humble and Ambitious and Positive – and get the media buyers to use our product.

Im a socialist (believe it or not) comming from working class – using my skills to change the world a little bit. And I think the unions in Denmark are FANTASTIC – they have a BIG BIG STAKE in our economy being the best in EU – since they have been super fair in the how to hire and fire – unlike Germany and France (and unlike all the greedy CEOs who wants a billion to leave their jobs)… BUT I have to say that the process of firering journalists is stupid and very bad for the “worker” – since we have now been in a limbo for 7 days (and will stay like that for another 7) where we cant decide who should stay or who should go – thats simply not human (probobly there is a another good explanation).
Ok – I know its stupid of me to comment on this – but I had to.
