The editorial today is correct. Ipswich people and subscribers to our Queensland Times are a parochial lot, so often part of our daily conversation is based on our Qt. So the question is often asked “Is that the Truth or did you read it in the Courier Mail?” That being a fact not a alternative fact the introduction of Bolts babble should be left where it belongs in the Courier Mail.
That’s why we buy the QT. Not to have to read the fake news produced by News.
Lesson one in any business is if it’s not broken don’t fix it and if the QT wants to keep its customer base may I suggest look local if you need more content because that’s what keeps us punters supporting our local rag.
