|There is a similar thread running on Ealing Today where it is reported that The Ealing Gazette now has a print run of only a couple of thousand copies.|
Many newsagents have simply removed the 'dump bins' for the paper which is kept alive by local authority and estate agent advertising.
The chap that founded Hanwell Rugby Club is now dealing with his third 'Sports Editor' in eighteen months and local reporting is seemingly confined to 'cubs' reporting whatever is spoon fed to them. A very sad decline but little to do with phone hacking just the evolution of how we get our news. A weekly 'local rag' is never going to be able to compete with the immediacy of a website.
The good journos have long since moved on from many local newspapers so don't expect any piercing print insights into Hounslow Council and the growing can of worms that is A2Dominion any time soon.
