Economist cartoonist Kal has animated excerpts from the news outlets “punctilious in-house style guide”.

It features wracked sheep, racked (and wracked) brains and Dr Frankenstein and his monster.

A paper known for its online innovation, like John Hassell’s Expoding Newsroom, now sees its entire editorial board leave.

“The board (who are responsible for the comment and opinion pages) are among 151 editorial staff, about 45 per cent of the newsroom, leaving the paper,” Greenslade reports.
