It would be interesting but not practical to compare The Daily Sun over the last five years. I suspect you'd find the paper over this period has shrunk considerably. The Police Blotter and Useless Facts section are only the most recent columns dropped. IMHO, The Daily Sun is not as comprehensive as it used to be. I guess when it was sold, someone has to pay off the purchase somehow and maximizing profit is critical to its survival.

I don't think that removing stuff that makes it interesting is going to sell more copies.

They know they're the only game in town. There aren't a lot of options here, short of a protest boycott and I suspect most people wouldn't care enough to participate in one. But do you agree the paper has grown thinner over time?

Thinner!! I've only been here a year, so I can't judge from what it used to be. We quit getting it because it was so thick and we are so busy we never had enough time to read it. I felt we were really wasting trees.
