PRIVATE BIN: ACP throws tantrum over Runway shutdown rumour

ACP Media has lashed out at speculation it’s about to can all of its websites.

Fashion blogger Isaac Likes, quoting an anonymous source within the company, is reporting plans to scrap Runway Reporter, the online home of magazine Fashion Quarterly, with the loss of eight jobs.

The source is reported to have said that ACP’s other websites such as Cleo, Metro and Taste are also being cut.

However, ACP chief executive Paul Dykzeul has described the report as “defamatory and incorrect”.

He also promised a further announcement on the issue tomorrow.

It will be intriguing to see if the “defamatory and incorrect” report turns out to be true, or whether ACP is trying to scare people away from reporting about its difficulties.

ACP is of course desperate for people not to know its in the doldrums, like all other over-priced product companies at this time.

ACP staff - get out now, you can still get a payout.

ACP management - you follow a Yank model, don't you ? Look, we can all immediately tell when your lying. A simple "Not True" would be the end of the discussion. But by saying "Defamatory and Incorrect" immediately sets the klaxons blazing - it means that the statement was most likely 100% on target, and now your going to have to cover your backsides because you <i>know</i> it was correct, and the fallout starts now.

Keep on reporting on this one, its going to be fun to see the end result.
