UK Sun pays

Did you notice the fine print in the Page 3 Toronto Sun photo of a London Sun web page yesterday?

The line that reads Got a story? We pay $$$.

That message to UK readers stands out when Sun Media newspapers in Canada are forever asking readers to provide stories, photos and videos for free.

Filling print and online newspaper space with free content provided by "citizen" journalists is a new low and shouldn't be tolerated.

Yes, others are accepting external content donations, including TV and radio stations, but it doesn't make it right.
