Check it out. It's the New©™ Globe & Mail, tarted up. The Grey Lady is now Ravishing Red.
Sadly enough for its well-read and thoughtful subscribers, the New©™ Globe & Mail has been transformed into a magloid: chock full of publireportages and infotainment.
Except for its ace card, 'Report on Business' of course. No longer a mere section, Business is now the G&M's raison d'être, the logical consequence of John Stackhouse - who once was its editor - taking control of the publication's content.
Out with Rick Salutin and Tabatha Southey. They're far too principled, rigorous and journalistic for the New©™ Globe & Mail's intended readership, the glitterati, financiers and "captains of industry" as they were called in the 19th century, aka "robber barons". Mags Wente, Irshad Manji, Rex Murphy and Christie Blatchford get the code. They've sensed blood in the water and as long as it's not their own they'll do fine.
The New©™ Globe and Mail and its editor-in-chief have their eyes on the gold ring: uniting Toronto and Calgary's moneyed elite in the universal mantra: Greed is Good!
