Moore & papers

Catching up: Michael Moore talks about the downturn of American newspapers during the Toronto film fest, but some comments mirror Canada's conglomerate media mess.

Readers come first, advertisers second, in some countries? Fancy that.


  1. I always thought people pick up a newspaper to read it and that in the process of reading it, the advertisers would get their ads noticed.
    But I have had a publisher tell me that advertisers pay my salary as I was a "writer."
    I'm confused.

  2. Moore is right.
    And it's happening here.
    Just why do we keep voting for our bosses?
