On Monday, in the middle of our vacation idyll, we made our way to the local coffee shop for a rural capuccino and the papers. Picking up the shop’s copy of the Vancouver Sun I came across this paragraph in a story about the Sun’s new on-line pay model:
“A growing number of major newspapers around the world, including the New York Times and London’s Times and Guardian, have adopted pay models for digital content. Today, The Sun follows suit.”
I looked up, smiled and read it out aloud to my companions. Instant laughter. Guffaws even.
And tomorrow? Will the Western Shopper join this elite?
PS: if you haven’t read Tsakumis’ latest BC Rail scoop, please do so. Our unelected Premier (along with most of the msm) says it’s not news, so of course it is.
