The Sheffield Star Newspaper (paper version)

Recommended Posts

Most of the stories are scraped Off online social media and forums.

Online site is a mess...the whole thing needs an overhaul.

There's been a massive improvement in the star under the latest editor.

 

It's not perfect but is vastly improved. It should be encouraged.

Agree the online is still poor. I was referring to paper.

Bad news fellow forum members, The Star will rise in price by 5p from Monday to 70p.

Are daily papers (either local or national) even worth half this price these days ?

 

It's not bad news for anyone with a computer - which presumably most of you have?

 

It's free online.

 

And it's such a load of rubbish unprofessional journalism anyway - why get concerned about it?

The paper is much better and improving.

Agree. The editor now is very positive and transparent imho.

St Patrick's day has been and gone and not one word or photo of the day was printed, the tent in Fargate was full to bursting, the Lord Mayor held a bit of a do for the Irish community in the Town Hall but it seems Nancy Fielder just doesn't care. Every major town and city in Britain celebrated this day and was reported in all local papers. The Star is now just a joke, it's more interested in gaining advertising revenue than reporting proper news, there are very few mature reporters as they have been replaced by kids who don't come from Sheffield and don't know anything about the city.

You think that some people having a drink in a tent is news? Really?

I didn't say it was news it's an EVENT just like Tramlines and other things that are staged throughout the year. I didn't clarify the wording as I thought it was pretty straightforward. You give the impression that you have never been to the Tent, if you had you would realise it's much more than " some people having a drink in a tent"

Fantastic marketing ploy by Guinness in hijacking St Patrick's day.

Well whenever I've walked past it (and you're right, I've never been in) it looks exactly like some people having a drink in a tent. Which isn't even an event, let alone news.

The star has improved massively recently and the new editor should be applauded and encouraged.

 

A much better read than in recent years.
