CityNews circulates the figures

By Kerces 19 October 2005 66

CityNews has a snark to anyone who’ll listen about how the Canberra Times circulation figures have declined once again.

Now despite what opinion you the RiotACT reader may hold of CityNews, the proprietors see it as a direct competitor to the Canberra Times (interestingly not to that other free weekly The Chronicle).

So please indulge their gloating, complete with statements such as “since the paper’s change of ownership to Rural Press more than six years ago, its circulation numbers have been moving in the opposite direction to its advertising rates”.

Interesting to note that CityNews claims its circulation figures are more than those of the Canberra Times on Monday-Friday combined.

What’s Your opinion?

Lots of documents requires librarians…

You may find that the library isn’t open for public perusal however…

If you want to understand the context of the photo, do a google image search for my name and click on the result which is that photo. As it is used on that website with my name attached to it, I have made it my official photo.

btw, I have an auntie who works in Russell…in a library or something I think…of course that could just be a cover for whatever secret activities she does. If she was a shoe saleswoman I would be worried.

Lol SGS, I tend to use absentia pictures to provide a level of anonyminity, such as my current favourite is of a 8-10 yo kid holding up a pair of craft scissors and a sign that says ‘full brazilian 5c’.

If I can’t get that up, I generally tend to use a picture of a Quokka.

So you’ve either thought of me as some smart assed kid or an extremely intelligent animal from Rottnest Island…

“Glossy Advertorial Nonsense Device” is the description I use.

Mael, If the photo isn’t of me then I’m worried.

I think that’s the direct translation.

CityNews. Isn’t that some sort of advertising junk mail ?
