Why are The Sun's sales declining far faster than those of its rivals?

Why are The Sun's sales declining far faster than those of its rivals? | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Why is The Sun losing sales faster than its traditional rival, the Daily Mirror, and its closest competitor, the Daily Mail? And why is it doing so when it is 10p cheaper than the Mirror and 20p cheaper than the Mail?
Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "The Sun has lost its confidence, which may well not be too surprising in the circumstances. The arrests of journalists for allegedly paying police and public officials for information has also undermined its traditional news-getting practices."

Why journalists should NOT declare how they vote

Why journalists should NOT declare how they vote | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Journalists, writes Antony Loewenstein, should disclose who they vote for plus any other "political affiliations" that may affect their reporting. We are subjective and need to admit that to ourselves and our readers, he argues.
Andy Bull's insight:
Excellent consideration on the question of transparency and the complexity of requiring journalists to reveal their political affiliations. This from the post: "I'm all for greater transparency but I think the Loewenstein formula to reveal supposedly hidden agendas is far too simplistic. Indeed, what strikes me forcibly is that such an approach would be counter-productive. Readers might well look first at a writer's political affiliation and decide whether or not to read the article on that basis rather than its substantive content."
