The newspaper works, which is the propaganda organisation for the newspaper industry in Australia have put out a short powerpoint presentation about newspapers. It is available here.
I particularly like the comment that a smash hit on Youtube of 6.6 million hits would simply be Tuesday for a newspaper.
With all this doom and gloom about the media, many lose sight that newspapers are a terrific product. Everyday the consumer needs a new version, they take up little space, and you only pay for what you sell after you have been paid.
Have a look and see what you think.
