The Bristol Cable – get involved!

We have a serious problem with media plurality in the UK.

* Just three companies (News UK, DMGT and Trinity Mirror) control nearly 70% of national newspaper circulation.

* Just five companies control some 70% of regional daily newspaper circulation.

* Out of 406 Local Government Areas, 100 (25%) have no daily local newspaper at all while in 143 LGAs (35% of the total) a single title has a 100% monopoly.

That’s why I’m involved with The Bristol Cable — you can get involved too!

The Bristol Cable is people’s media co-operative, created, owned and produced by people in the city. With a multimedia website and a bi-monthly free print edition, The Bristol Cable is building the tools and platform for people to engage with their communities, the city and the wider world.
