Friday payday: The readership mystery

In the end, nobody really knows why a reader buys one newspaper over another. It’s part longstanding habit. Old loyalties, like a marriage. What they grew up with.

When we compared the two papers, the Daily Starbud actually had more news, but because fewer stories jumped from one page to another, our appearance was much cleaner. Many people then assumed there was more in the clutter. Sometimes you just can’t win.
