National Post: Voice of the Overdog?
I am not usually a fan of Linda McQuaig, but this piece got me thinking. Was there ever any group or class of people the Post has supported who were not rich, powerful and culturally dominant? The National Post, in its good days, was a fun read, very unpredictable, sometimes infuriating, but with some challenging articles. Its causes, however, were those of its owner, not of its readers. Now, both the owner and the readers are gone, and, if the paper is to survive, it needs to be managed professionally, develop some courage, and become much hungrier for news.
