It’s always a pleasure to find a good news story. The circulation of Australia’s most left-wing newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald, has plummeted by 12% in the past year. Its equally left-wing Melbourne stablemate, The Age, also experienced a severe fall.
The more moderate Australian newspapers such as the Telegraph are holding their ground surprisingly well, and the circulation of The Australian has actually increased marginally.
So it’s reasonable to assume that the calamitous performance of the left-wing press is at least partially a reflection of the extent to which they are out of touch with the Australian people.
