Steve Dyson 'ticks off' Johnston Press

Steve Dyson in his blog reviewing regional newspapers, hosted by HoldtheFrontPage, takes a look at the Burnley Express today and crticises the paper's publisher, Johnston Press.
Dyson writes: "What struck me about all inside editorial pages was poor design. Content, of course, is king, but the dominance of its crown can be hindered by what to me seemed slapdash, template-driven lay-outs.
"Whether this is down to stressed subbing hubs in Preston, the early days of Atex or both, it would be wrong not to tick Express owners Johnston Press off for allowing cost-savings to result in sub-standard looking pages."
