M.E.N newspaper – a new low


We’re not one for conspiracy theories when it comes to the media.

In general, writers do tend to let their own club-leanings set the theme…

The Manchester Evening News, however, has always divided opinion as to where it supposedly stands in the pro-blue/red debate.

And it certainly won’t do much to enhance its reputation (or readership) if the headline in Friday’s ‘The Diary’ is anything to go by – let’s put it this way – even the sports desk would have said ‘no thanks’ to this one!

United show City who’s in the big league for visitors

The intro starts: City might be getting the better of United on the pitch at the moment – but at the Manchester Tourism Awards on Wednesday night the Reds and Blues proved to be in a different league.

Both clubs actually won awards for their stadium packages but the MEN thought it was still a good laugh (and worthy of a double page spread) that City won the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year – awarded for attractions with fewer than 50,000 visitors a year – beating the likes of Dunham’s Red House Farm (who do a mean hot chocolate by the way)

And United landing the Large Visitor Attraction of the Year – open to those with more than 50,000 visitors a year – and up against the Manchester Museum and the National Football Museum.

We look forward to the M.E.N balancing the scale when City’s leisure site is pulling in six million visitors a year.
