Quite clearly the 'What's On' section of the Costa Blanca News thinks the Costa Blanca starts at Alicante and finishes at Peniscola, near Barcelona.

Today's supplement, The Post is typical. Of seven featured events not a single one is south of Alicante. I checked through a few back issues of the CBN. The Costa Update section is 2/3rds north of Alicante; Altea, Javea, Moraira, Jalon, Denia, Alfa etc. Santa Pola to Cartegena barely gets a look in.

There is definate favouritism. Some entertainers have their information automatically included whilst others are repeatedly ignored. Some have their gigs repeated in several issues, word for word. Again, really good entertainers from and around Torrevieja are cold-shouldered. Quality entertainment and entertainers are not exclusively north of Alicante. The best are here.

The CBN is not cheap; you could buy a paperback for its cover price. Why then are Torrevieja's talented entertainers being excluded from the What's On and Costa Update sections? Why are we southern section readers and advertisers subsidising readers, advertisers, venues, gigs, and entertainers up the coast from Alicante? Thank goodness for the more representative online forums; long may they prosper.
