It’s nor often TCN pay’s any attention to the Laptop Loyal or MSN in general but today is a day for celebration as latest figures published show a sharp decline in sales as people turn away from old media and the general rubbish served up as ‘news’.
Latest figures from December 2011 – December 2012.
- Daily Record sold an average of 250,096 copies a day compared to 274,505 in the previous December, a drop of 8.8%.
- Sunday Mail, did much worse by falling from a sale of 365,232 to 285,028, a decrease of 21.9%.
- Sunday Post, continued its long decline by falling from a sale of 301,841 down to 245,727. That’s a drop of 18.6%.
- Scottish Sun, its fall – from 302,823 copies to 276,154 – amounted to an 8.8% dip
These figures are proof of a year on year slide in sales which will hopefully see them becoming unprofitable and hopefully dead.
Although there is a decent argument that people are getting their daily fix of tabloid rubbish via the internet we at TCN still encourage Celtic fans to shun these sites as every visit generate ad revenue for them.
So think twice about where you get your news and sports info from. 🙂
