Red Tory has the goods on shrinking readership, paper-size, and markets. I can’t say I’m surprised at this development, the National Post really doesn’t have much to offer unless you already buy into its fairly narrow neoconservative view of foreign policy fused with so-con moral panic.
Also, the last time I checked, they stopped putting in editorial cartoons. How are we to swallow all the horror and bullshit if you don’t offer up a smile or a laugh as a chaser? Conrad is a convicted criminal now, but at least he had the semblance of a vision for his flagship paper, I think the Aspers on the other hand have pretty much demonstrated their inability to comprehend the newspaper world.
