McDonalds sells newspapers, hurts small business


In a rare cross promotion of my other blog, I am incensed at the push by McDonalds to sell newspapers. This move will harm Australia’s 4,600 independently owned small business newsagents. Maybe not right away but eventually. It’s a small step against the newsagent channel which the publishers created in the 1800s and which has been a standard bearer of Australian culture and community ever since.

Boycott McDonalds.
