A National Post Newspaper in Actual Paper Form

On Thursday last week I picked up a National Post newspaper. Two big surprises awaited me when I took the paper to the clerk:

* The price: $2.50
* The slight paper weight, tied in with the purchase price; which prompted the following after I later unfurled the newsprint: "Two dollars and fifty cents, for this?"

I was a little surprised at the lack of anti-Trudeau print that day. That's right. Postmedia has designated the bulk of its anti-Trudeau fish & chips ink for its certified rag, the Toronto Sun.

How much does the Sun charge at the newsstand?....

(Fit to print: The above all because the newsagent didn't carry the Globe and Mail.)

I gotta admit I worry about the news industry in general. A weakened fourth estate doesn't help anyone except budding autocrats.

Tell that to the Toronto Sun's editorial board. The Ministry of Lies (carefully selected information).
