Local newspapers and council coverage… yes, it’s helpmeinvestigate day 3.5.
Sorry for the spam.
*waves it off*
It’s fine, you’re used to it by now.
Essentially, there is a very complicated system to work out the amount of coverage.
You count the pages dedicated to news.
Each lead story counts as 1 page.
A picture story is a half.
Any other story, counts as a quarter.
Add them up, add them into a spreadsheet and percentage is made.
It’s interestng stuff; a lot of different newspaper has very different ways of handling the news and the numbers aren’t as poor as I would have expected!
The invitation to join in is here, so click away if you want to help out because you’re all lovely.
