a news service

National Post

Conrad Black’s giddy experiment in news-reporting without even the slightest pretense of objectivity and printed exclusively in red ink. The writing was better than that in the Globe & Mail, which might have had something to do with the fact that most of the Post’s writers were twenty years younger and hadn’t had their brains pickled by job security and/or the carbon monoxide being re-circulated by closed-system office air conditioners. The paper, under the bottom-lining Aspers who bought it from Black, became barely distinguishable from the Financial Post Conrad Black educed it from, except on the weekend, when it turns into the Jerusalem Post–with better writing than the Globe, and more locally-sensitive coverage.
