According to Paul Berton’s latest advertorial, “We’re redesigning the print version of The London Free Press…with a focus on local news.” *cough*

Judging by the datestamp (“Posted: 2008-04-05 15:33:42”) it seems that he was about 4.5 days late in posting it.

The real truth is that the LFP out-of-town corporate owner did a hatchet job on staff in order to increase profitability and the paper is incapable of delivering more than a small fraction of the local coverage that it once could.

Citizen journalists to the rescue! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Based on my post, somebody over on the Toronto Sun Family thinks that I’m a cynic. If only they took the time to read some of the other posts around here, they’d realize how right they are. ๐Ÿ˜›
