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.
Surprise at Guardian towers that Telegraph's untrue story about the Guardian is still on the website. Will it run in print?
