Here is a radio interview on the closure of country newspaper distributions with Carolyn Doherty from the Australian Newsagents' Federation and Brad Layton the owner of a country newsagency in New South Wales.
I thought it was very good. The points were clearly made. I was disappointed that no-one from Fairfax was there to respond.
One issue that I think should be mentioned is that it is all well and good to complain, but nothing was said about what could be done to try to fix the situation. For example, why was the local newsagent not armed with special offers from News Limited that is still delivering there in an attempt to save these seventy five (75) clients that he has possibly lost?
