So the Globe and Mail paywall goes up Monday. Being forward thinkers, they’ve priced it at a rather ripe 20 bucks a month (!) for non print subscribers.
Non payers get a paltry 10 items a month.
Outside of that, it is a virtual Fort Knox. Impenetrable. No where, no how, no way you’re getting access to…wait a second:

‘Opening links to articles posted on Facebook, Twitter, search engines and blogs will not count toward the 10 free items a month.’

I get the sense the entire upper management got dropped on its head at an early age.

The Toronto Star, sensing an opportunity for new readers, launched a new feature with the breezily titled link, ‘Browse our new GTA murder map’.

Browse?

All in all, a less than stellar day on the media landscape.
