HTFP headline ‘nearly made me choke on my coffee’ says blogger
The regional press receives too-cursory a glance from doom-mongering, London-centric media experts. We therefore let experienced former editor Steve Dyson loose to critique regional or local newspapers from across the UK in a column that ran from 2010 to 2020.
He tasted splashes, assessed courts and council reporting and measured story counts, as well as starting debates on major issues facing the sector. His unique, detailed analysis of the ink on paper and websites that so many British adults still read became one of the most popular columns here on HoldtheFrontPage for more than ten years.
