Dose Debuts


Couldn't let the day pass without extending a big "welcome to the oversaturated TO media scene" to CanWest pub Dose. You've got me why they decided to launch yet another free daily in the city. Must be their idea of compensating for the fact readership in their sister pub, the National Post, dropped 12% last year.

Haven't all these new publishers heard of something called the Internet? It spares trees. Plus, it's where the readership is at. Perhaps it's a case of having too much money they don't know what to do with? But wait, they have a web site. And get this, they offer free blog space. No one does that, right? (Apologies to Blogger, MSN spaces, Xanga et al)
