Apparently, I’m not alone in finding the offerings of the local press less than interesting. Johnston Press has made major losses and they claim that the local pruning measures are a necessity as a result of their present financial situation. Are we sacrificing Isle of Man staff to support the company as a whole? Is the Isle of Man branch in an equally poor position?
Does it matter? The fact is that readers don’t seem to be happy with what’s on offer. Why don’t JP heed the advice? Real news – cut the colour supplement stuff. Does the local press excel on any level? No problem. There are alternative news sources. 🙂
