Cyprusscene and Cyprus Observer
A refreshing difference
By Ismail Veli
Cyprusscene.com the internet media site is only about 2 years old. During this short time Chris Elliott and Margaret Sheard have worked tirelessly to improve the depth and variety of quality articles to their fast growing readership. Their volunteer writers and great website presentation, together with their willingness to work together and share information with other news outlets is a welcome change from the often lack of co-operation amongst the local media in North Cyprus.
It’s true that every business needs to have a competitive edge in quality, content and delivery of their news articles. sadly in North Cyprus -like most things- this attitude is often taken to the extreme and the failure to win locals and outsiders can be pretty destructive.
Cyprus Observer (C.O) the English weekly newspaper, which is sold in North Cyprus, is another paper that has been successful. In-spite of internet news, many people still enjoy reading a newspaper. The C.O. however has also realised that together with online news the combination can give it a much larger audience with the ability to ensure that some of its most popular articles can be read across the globe.
It is with this in mind that Cyprusscene and C.O decided that collaborating together would be beneficial to all concerned. Cyprusscene have now been offered the opportunity to share some of their more popular articles written by a group of volunteer writers that take great pride in researching, investigating and presenting their readers with balanced articles that have helped them grow immensely in the last 2 years. No doubt readers will benefit from this cooperation.
Ultimately it’s the public that decides which media it trusts and finds the most informative. The aim of Cyprusscene and the Cyprus Observer in working together will now provide the public with what are impartial, in-depth and quality news articles to an ever increasing audience which in the 21st century is even more critical, better informed, with much demand for more balanced reports. It seems this union is destined to provide just that.
