This week in the media world, we’ve seen a mix of resignations, drama hits, and indie investments. Alison Phillips, the editor of the Mirror, has stepped down amidst significant job cuts at Reach. The move has sparked discussions about the future of the paper and its digital transition. Meanwhile, ITV has scored big with its drama series “Mr. Bates vs. the Post Office,” which has not only been a ratings success but also brought attention to the plight of subpostmasters.
