UK National Newspaper Combined Print/Web Readership

The numbers, drawn from the results of the National Readership survey and reported in Press Gazette, show that nearly 14 million people per week are now reading the Mail titles either in print or online. The real number will be even higher as the figure does not include traffic from mobile devices.

The Sun remains the most read paper in print by a distance.

    I’d have thought the most interesting figures there are the very low web reader totals for the titles that have paywalls online. Are they worth it for such a big hit to online readers? I’d think Times would have a good chance of coming out as top broadsheet on total numbers if they didn’t charge. And such feeble numbers must cause a real problem selling digital advertising.

    Presumably Guido can’t comment since he’s tied into the Sun now himself…

      I am surprised that The Sun has over half-a-million readers prepared to pay £7+ a month for the Sun+ subscription. That’s over £40 million a year that the Gruntiad or the Mail are not getting.

      6000m x £0 = £0
      500m x £7 = £3500m

      so it depends on the web advertising – and a large majority have Adblock activated

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
