Guardian Kick Back at Telegraph Crisis Story

The Telegraph has this afternoon published a story claiming that GNM is ‘close to axing the print editions of the Guardian and Observer’.  It is a rehash of a blog written on a small advertising website.

I can confirm this is completely untrue.

The newspaper makes up two thirds of our revenue and remains core to our strategy.  The figures for going digital only and abandoning print simply don’t add up.

As David pointed out in his email this morning, Guardian content is accessed by 5.8m across print, web and mobile in GB every week – more than any other national quality title, including the Telegraph.

This is something that we should all be incredibly proud of.

    “The newspaper makes up two thirds of our revenue” – True but it is also responsible for >90% of the operating losses.

    He has 650 journalists and yet the editor has still managed to more than halve its circulation (drop of 51%) since he took over.

    As far as I am aware, he is the most unsuccessful editor in the history of UK national press.

    Can anyone name any other editor of a national newspaper that has spent so much, yet seemingly achieved so little?

    it’s the editorial bill that cripples them

    I presume “650” includes anyone who ever contributes anything to the Grauniad, I can’t imagine them having 650 full-time or even part-time “journalists”.

    Re 90percent of losses being due to the print side of the business – that probably includes the journalist salaries which would still be payable under a web only operation?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
