My local newspaper has gone down the pan. Over 100 years of quality journalism appears to have been lost, with mistake after mistake appearing among its pages, and online.
This has been a gradual decline, and is probably linked to cost-cutting. Maybe it’s time to close the doors of the establishment permanently, and just be done with the death throes we are experiencing?
I know I’m not the worlds best at writing, but what I offer up is for free. Newspapers in general, aren’t free, and as such, should have some sort of quality assurance in place as a bare minimum. Surely?
Maybe the reporters have been celebrating Christmas early, with the odd tipple of Sherry, or are simply advertising the Tour of Australia?
- The newspaper has lost this reader, and will probably lose more.
I’m no longer willing to buy the £1.40 Whitehaven News – not even for wiping my fat arse on. Besides, a roll of toilet paper costs around 50p, and is much more enjoyable. Plus, no mistakes are left behind 🤭
