SALFORD STAR FUNDING APPEAL
 

Star date: 22nd June 2010  

NO EVIDENCE FOR REFUSING SALFORD STAR FUNDING

This morning, Salford Star's appeal to Salford City Council's Cabinet was deferred until July.

Salford Star had appealed against Salford City Council's ruling that the community centred magazine didn't meet its criteria for funding because it was `overtly political' and `unbalanced'. Councillors noted that in the officers' reports there was no proper evidence submitted to back this up.

Officers now have until the next Cabinet meeting to provide serious proof that the Salford Star is `overtly political' and `unbalanced'.

I agree totally. Even the famous George Monbiot highlighted the Salford Star as one of few truly independent local papers fiercely promoting Salford and standing up for people's rights - plus - and this is the biggest plus - the Star is produced by yer actual citizens of Salford. It's not produced by professional journalists who live in Cheshire. It holds the powerful to account! that's what local media should do.

And it would be a lot cheaper than a certain Orchestra that is looking really good value for money now!

I discovered Salford Star about 6 months ago. My impression is that it is a fearless publication dedicated to exposing corruption and incompetence by those who rule us. It also supports the City of Salford and it's people, giving a voice to those who otherwise would go unheard. It promotes the positive aspects of Salford too, giving much needed publicity and support to local artist(es). As for being "unbalanced", of course there is a lot of criticism of a "Labour" Council. They are the ones in power, and making all the decisions! Maybe if that same Council spent more time getting it right, there would be nothing to criticise? I truly worry about the (almost total) lack of Democracy and accountabilty in this great City of ours. SUPPORT THE SALFORD STAR!
