On Clark Kent quitting the Daily Planet
Dear Clark Kent
We hear you have quit your job at the Daily Planet, so may we try to interest you in a job at Mint? Good men and women have quit for reasons similar to yours, and it is a little frightening to know that even Superman couldn’t do anything about the insidiousness that is trying to erode the foundations of journalism.
India, as you may know, is the one place in the world where newspapers still have a future. It is also a country where you will find some great newspapers and TV channels (just as you would, some others we won’t speak of). And the Mint newsroom is a fully integrated one, so we may be able to indulge your fancy for a freewheeling blog, even a video one.
Here, in the Mint newsroom, we see ourselves as ordinary people, and it will be really good to have the real Superman work with us.
