I am pleased to see that the National Post has been purchased and that they will live to write another day. I think some of the people who write for them are boneheads, but the same can be said of any newspaper. I remember back when the Toronto Star bought a big ownership stake in the Globe and Mail, I became immediately concerned and started buying the Post instead. Look what has happened to the Globe and Mail in the last few years since Torstar bought into their management. It has been a slow but steady downward spiral, with Jane Taber at the center of the vortex.
I personally stopped buying the National Post because I don't want my money to pay two of their writers, but I do make a point to frequently direct people to articles on their website because it is my number one source for online news. I am a big fan of McParland, Ivison, Gunter, and some of their financial writers. We basically have 2 National newspapers in this country, and I shudder to think if the Post should fall, the Globe shall sell more copies. Yikes.
