"Why support your local press?" asks regional publisher.
With the Murdoch family poised to consolidate their powerful monopoly over global media, regional publisher Duncan Williams explains why he believes keeping publishing local is of benefit to all of us.
"Local publishing adds real character to your community. With UK streets fast becoming clones of each other with uniform outlets of Tescos, Starbucks, Asda, Inter-flora, etc... Do we really want all our news served up in the same identikit corporate manner? Local identity is best protected and expressed by local journalists. Regional newspapers and magazines have a real purpose to play, building better communities and assisting positive communication from the grassroots on up.
...Moral values, 'spiritual' or religious individuality and, of course, small business economies can all be well served by their own regionally focused titles."
With the powerful effect media now exerts upon our society, the control of reporting by one dominating global media provider is ultimately a regressive step . Independence, freedom of speech and even truth itself, are all best protected by independent regional publishing..."
