Satirical Website Ridicules 'Changing of the Record'

Journalists at the Daily Record are to be 'set free' by a 'cut-and-paste era', according to a Scots satirical website, which claims to have been 'purchased' by the paper's publisher, Trinity Mirror.

Says the Scottish Crucible, quality and services are 'to be remembered' and there is to be work, for 'battery hacks' in a cowshed.

Under the heading, 'Changing the Record' and responding to real life news that some 90 editorial jobs have been earmarked for redundancy at the Daily Record and Sunday Mail newspapers, the website adds: “Staff lucky enough to keep a job will nick pictures off Facebook, badger friends on Twitter for leads and rip off weekly titles for stories about dogs in Forfar that can sing along to the River City credits.”
