I have no fucking clue what the % in those is supposed to mean though.

With such decline you can see why they try so desperately to polarize opinion.


#1458

which restricts their reader base even more.

honestly, good riddance. this is what happens when you throw facts out the window and report sensationalism and whatever your editor/owner wants completely unchecked.

City AM is a dreadful paper, not surprised to see them last.

I’m happy to see readership of the tabloids going down but I’m not sure if the alternative is better. People just read a lot of shit online now
