Acid In The Punch Bowl

Guardian Site Read Mostly By Right-Wing Trolls

Recommended Posts

It's in The Mash it must be true.

THE Guardian website has a larger readership of argumentative right-wing arseholes than middle-class bedwetters, it has emerged.

The newspaper’s site now has an audience that is 81 per cent tedious right-wingers who flock there to sneer at ‘the left’ and make unfunny comments about hairy women.

The Guardian seems to have more readers than expected. Shops often run out of them whilst still having lots of the alternatives.

or maybe they've got wise and don't order many in the first place?

Back when I was in University the Uni would order a bunch of copies along with the Metro and lay them out on tables for people to take for free. I imagine its the same in a lot of places. Rarely did I see many people reading them though, most ended up in the recycling bins.

That huge popularity must be why they lost over £100m last year and will have burnt through the Scott Trust money in a decade and then disappear.

It's quite something that the Daily Mail outsells the Guardian by 10 to 1. I'm not virtue signalling; I'd rather read the former. Just goes to show where most people's thoughts lie.

178000 guardians sold / approx 30,000 newsagents = 6 copies per newsagent (not including those going to bbc, unis, direct to readers etc). This is why it is often sold out and a massive headache for their distribution.

It may have changed but it used to be that the Guardian was the only major paper that didn't operate on a sale or return basis which was why shops kept their stocks of it small. Any unsold ones cost them whereas for any other unsold papers they weren't out of pocket.

The Guardian used to be a good newspaper, but like many others reports opinions, and lifestyle articles as "news". :huh:
