Taking a look at the Canberra Times website today, I am forced to wonder – why do they even bother having one? Two of the stories posted as “today’s top stories” are in fact continuations of another two stories listed there. There apparently hasn’t been any “General National News” since 3 July. And there’s been a total of three international stories puiblished in the last week. That’s not to mention the general poor quality of the design of the site.
Admittedly the potential audience for the website is small, and they might not want to eat into their potential hard-copy sales. But somehow other Australian newspapers manage to run decent, well-designed and informative websites. Why not the CT?
