Newspaper circulation figures for November 2009 showed a decline for all the quality newspapers but the sharpest decline for my paper of choice for 35 years, The Guardian.
As I want people at the Guardian to know why I quit and why I suspect thousands each month are dumping them I had to post this comment on the story:
The Guardian may have declined sharply because of its decision to cease distributing bulks as you say, but my decision to cancel my regular order was based on my reluctance to pay a pound a day for what has become the propaganda sheet of The Politically Correct Thought Police. I’m old Liberal not New Labour and I will make up my own mind on the issues. When a paper starts mixing opinion with news reporting it cannot claim objectivity.
Perhaps the managers of Guardian Media Group need to spend some time reading the Baghavad Gita. “Abandon objectivity and you become addicted, become addicted and you lose your essential intelligence.”
I suspect many other ex Guardian Readers have come to similar decisions for the same reasons.
ALWAYS THINK FOR YOURSELVES.
