THE Donegal Post – part of the Letterkenny-based River Media newspaper group – has been withdrawn from an industry watchdog which monitors the circulation figures of newspapers.The paper, which circulates in parts of the south of the county, is published on Wednesdays.River Media have not made any comment on the move which comes after rapidly deteriorating sales at the struggling title. It means the company cannot provide potential advertisers with an independently audited circulation figure provided by ABC – the Audit Bureau of Circulation.Latest ABC figures showed the Donegal Democrat Thursday edition figures down 6.6% year-on-year while the Tuesday Democrat/Peoples Press was down -4.5%.The Derry People/Donegal News Friday edition was down 0-2% year-on-year. The Monday paper has added an extra 150 copies in the same period.The Derry Journal Friday edition was down -1.9% on the year while the Tuesday edition was down -3.8%. The Derry-based titles are amongst the best performing in Ireland. River Media does have its Inish Times publication audited. It was down -2.4%. The company does not audit the freesheet Letterkenny Post.endsRIVER MEDIA TITLE WITHDRAWS FROM INDEPENDENT AUDIT was last modified: March 29th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Derry PeopleDonegal DemocratDonegal NewsDonegal PostInish TimesLetterkenny PostRiver Media

The Aligarh Muslim University Students’ Union has welcomed the decision of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) to file a review petition challenging the Supreme Court’s Ayodhya verdict. A statement issued by AMUSU president Salman Imtiaz said the verdict “appeared one-sided in the conclusion.”“We consider the building of the temple over the land of the mosque as a humiliation, injustice, and subjugation of Muslim minorities. It appears a step towards the creation of Hindu domination in India wherein Muslims will be rendered to second-grade citizens,” Mr Imtiaz said.He further said the AMUSU was committed to the cause of Babri Masjid, and it would never allow India to lose its constitutional core. “We are happy with many details in the judgment that have strengthened the constitutional framework of the nation, and outrightly rejected Hindu chauvinism,” the statement said.
Pandemonium continued in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday after Opposition cornered the UPA government over the Commonwealth Games scam. The Lok Sabha was adjourned till 5 pm after uproar over BJP leader Yashwant Sinha’s remarks about Sports Minister Ajay Maken .Sinha said that the government must explain who appointed Kalmadi as CWG Organising Committee chief and said that the government must fix responsibilities. Sinha’s comments followed reports that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh overruled the PMO’s recommendation to appoint former Sports Minister Sunil Dutt as the OC chief. Reports said the prime minister had picked Kalmadi ahead of the former sports minister. Earlier, the Opposition shouted down Maken over his statement blaming the NDA government for Kalmadi’s appointment. Maken threw his headphone on the floor during the heated discussion in the House.
