What is it with these absolute non stories they keep writing about. A woman buys a top that doesn't fit and compares herself to a tampon, how on earth does that make local news, its embarrassing.

Half their stories just use quotes from social media. Thats all we need, more drivel from the great unwashed of Teesside masquerading as journalism.

The Middlesbrough FC stories must be getting tough for PT, AV, EP etc [:D] assuming they have a professional conscience

Gazette isn't an investigative paper anymore, they dont have the resources. They are a skeleton crew compared to days of old. Majority of their stories will come from sites like this, Facebook groups, twitter etc, and then they will get linked stories from sister sites in trinity mirror or whatever they are now called hence we get loads of scarborough and whitby and york stuff

then there's the golden oldies where they trot out old articles (comments section give it away), or "30 photos of this old club over a 10 year period"

titles are all clickbait "with this one special trick" or other stuff to make you click them only to see the actual story is dull as anything.

the comments section is worse than youtube as well, because its faceless people behind a username. infested with right wingers, racists, sexists...worst of the worst. Yet same stories posted to FB get much more balanced comments.

“We get loads of Scarborough, Whitby and York stuff”

Yep. And Huddersfield. And Rotherham. And Portsmouth, Bristol, Stoke on Trent, Peterborough, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham. Everywhere where there is a group member local rag.

Titbits reborn.

It's a terrible paper/site these days.

That's why I read it, some of the stories are so bad, they're brilliant entertainment.

Spotting my first "Gazette Face" of the day is as welcome as the first cup of coffee of the day.
