The numbers are striking enough. Circulation down from 428,000 at its peak to a current 28,000. No wonder that the broadsheet version of the Independent is being withdrawn. Figures at other newspapers tell much the same story.

Newspapers Might Be Dying but It Doesn't Have to Be Quick

Alan Grant | Posted 14.02.2017 | UK
Alan Grant

As much some who live in the post-Leveson era are unkind to the newspapers and pour scorn upon them for bias, sensationalism and selective reporting - they are still worth defending. There is something relaxing about a newspaper in the way that it requires our undivided attention to use properly because when devouring news online we can become distracted by texts, tweets, pop-ups and other modern day nuisances.

Congratulations to the Media and Politicians for Helping Demonise Muslims!

Ajmal Masroor

The consequence of this portrayal was written on the wall in bold and brightly coloured letters: Muslims will become victims of terrible crimes motivated by racism and Islamophobia if this media onslaught continues. The media did not pay heed to those warnings, and that has happened, exactly as it was predicted.

Phone Hacking Investigation - £50million Spent for What?

Neil Wallis | Posted 11.12.2016 | UK
Neil Wallis

Almost £50million of taxpayers money, hundreds of police tied up for years, many journalists' lives and careers ruined... all for one (and a bit) guilty verdicts. Let's get one thing clear - phone-hacking was utterly wrong, morally appalling, and the criminals who did it deserved to be properly punished.

Why Do the Media Ignore Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse?

Tom Leavesley | Posted 26.11.2016 | UK
Tom Leavesley

We need more male survivors of childhood sexual abuse to come forward and we need the media to report their stories. Boys and young men need role models too, so it is time to ask the question, why do the media ignore male survivors?

Marie Carter

The evolution of mobile tech and faster connections (viable 4G in many areas) alongside greater digital 'savviness' are all creating a new publishing revolution. As devices get smarter and mobile connectivity starts to match Wi-Fi speed, digital magazines and newspapers can really take flight.

Why Facebook Users May Prefer to Hate Than Like

Grant Feller | Posted 20.09.2016 | UK Tech
Grant Feller

Hate, dislike, sadness, vociferous difference of opinion - these are the ties that bind. And within a media environment in which people don't actually meet or talk to each other in person, where anonymity, or at least a physical distance, is a powerful tool, they may well become surprisingly robust ties.

11 Simple Tips for Jeremy Corbyn to Endear Himself to the Right Wing Press

Louise Ridley | Posted 14.09.2016 | UK
Louise Ridley

He may be "a threat to our national security" but it turns out he has some other seriously negative qualities. By looking in the newspapers I've learned that not only is he a vegetarian (like Gandhi, but, unfortunately, also like Hitler) he also sometimes forgets to wear suits, he likes to sing, he wears a hat and shorts with high socks.

I woke the following morning to find the story had been covered by the Metro, the Mirror and, most terrifyingly, the Daily Mail. Initially, I found it hilarious, before realising that I would soon become the target of the brutal and relentless weirdos who leave comments on the site.

Are the Royals Right to Ask the Paparazzi to Leave Their Children Alone?

It's argued that people whose career depends on being in the public eye have no right to object to photos taken of them without permission. In other words, the entitled are not entitled to complain. But this Faustian pact argument has numerous problems.

If Labour Attacked the Tories Like They Attack Corbyn, They'd Be in Office Now: Instead, They're in Turmoil..

I always believed that Labour had lost it's fight because it had lost sight of it's purpose. I was wrong. The party machines remains acutely aware of that purposes, it just chooses to ignore it. The three mainstream candidates have united to show only too clearly that their fight is still within them, it is still bristling.

Somebody should also remind Newsquest that newspapers have not been money making machines on the whole for years and that they simply buy the owner power both socially and politically and if the management board are in this for the profit then they are the ones that should be dismissed for being in the wrong industry.
