Bill Heaney: Our weekly newspapers – time someone shouted ‘stop’

READ them and weep. The circulation figures for Scotland’s weekly newspapers are so bad I almost felt I was breaching the NUJ Code of Conduct rules about intruding into private grief as I read through them.

I admire the allmediascotland coverage for having found the one positive line in them and headlining on that – ‘Glenrothes Gazette Almost Alone in Bucking Declining Sales Trend Among Scottish Regional Newspapers’. But isn’t it time someone shouted, Stop?
