If you listen very closely you can hear the sound of Reuters breathing its last breath of life as a news agency.
As an organisation, it may still survive but it is no longer performing the function it has spent the previous 166 years doing.

Oh, hang on…
This is a classic “revealed versus expressed preferences” example.

Lastly, in Reuters’ own words;
