Which Magazines the Beeboids Buy

Following the news last month that the BBC buys more copies of the Guardian than any other newspaper, Guido thought he would have some more FOI fun. It turns out the BBC’s love for lefty rags doesn’t extend to the New Statesman – the Beeb bought more copies of the Speccie than the Staggers between January and July this year. An ideological shift to the right? More likely they’ve just realised there’s nothing worth reading in the Staggers any more…

Meanwhile Ian Hislop clearly hasn’t sorted out his BBC colleagues with any free copies of Private Eye, with the Beeb having to fork out for 155 in the last seven months. They aren’t buying James MacIntyre’s predictions that never come true though – Prospect fares pretty badly at a sobering seven a month. And as for Total Politics? Oh dear…

    What the four most popular mags have in common is that their TV reviewers don’t like television much.

    P.S. On the other hand, that is half of the NS’s circulation.

      It is now well over five years since I have watched live TV. If I really want to see something, I download it.

      The vast amount of time released has enabled me to increase my appetite for swimming, walking and sex. That is the way to improve circulation…

      Pssst. There’s a difference between circulation and total copies purchased in twelve months.

    No comment about the Economist? Or is just taken for granted that it’s the best news magazine in the bisness?

    No surprise that ‘The Economist’ is top of the pile. Best news magazine in the business isn’t it?

    Why are they buying any Magazines? They make enough Magazines themselves to stick on tables. As for news gathering, isn’t that what all the correspondents, repoters and editors are employed for?

    Hmmmn when you consider that the paid for circulation of the Staggers is only about 17,500 it represents quite a boost to their ‘sales’.

    Jeez Guido. You really do have to get rid of Wiki Guido cos he does write some rubbish. To be honest I’ve never seen anything from him that isn’t contradictory, boring, misleading or plain wrong.

    This time he attacks Auntie for buying the Grauniad and cos they are lefties. Now we find out they buy more of Speccie and The Economist and it’s a different story. It’s just weak, weak stuff.

    If your FOI didn’t support your initial lefty BBC line Wiki should not have bothered posting. Or he should have at least had the good grace to admit the initial position was wrong.

    I can be pretty sure when I read some weak contrived stories on here it is nearly always Wiki.

    He weakens your brand.
