Guardian pundit Roy Greenslade reports in his blog on the on the Belfast Community Telegraph, a weekly free paper with a circulation of 150000.

According to Greenslade the publication is produced with just one journalist.

“We write the stories, take photos on digital cameras, sub the pages and publish online as well”, his source says.

The benefit of the system apparently is that they “have huge ownership of the paper, flexibility and no breakdown in communication with subs, photographers, etc” says the mole. “From a purely financial point of view, it must be an immensely lucrative option to management, as we are paid the same wage as a regular reporter, yet do the jobs of four people in a traditional newspaper”

And who owns the Community Telegraph?

Indpendent News and Media of course!
