Two more councils dump propaganda sheets

Posted on August 16th, 2009 by Bernie Russell
Council propaganda sheets: all over now?
Two more councils have shut down their ‘newspapers’ in what we must hope is the beginning of a national trend.
These so-called newspapers are little more than glorified pr sheets. While they clam to give local people essential information, most of them have more spin than Shane Warne. And, even worse, they suck in advertising from hard-pressed local media.
Let’s hope other councils follow suit.
