Salespaper, not a newspaper

Reader Larry Elford left an interesting comment when The Tyee asked How do you like the new Globe and Mail:

I call this and other "business" media in Canada a "salespaper" instead of a newspaper.

I completely agree with others who have said, "NO LONGER A REAL NEWSPAPER".

I have moved on to more objective, truth seeking, truth telling media who are not captured by those who buy full page ads. . .
Gerard, another reader, added this near-defense:
And the Globe's the only worthy target isn't it, since it's pretty much the only Canadian paper from which we expect real quality. I might have missed the odd comment, but I didn't see anyone saying that it's really slipped behind the quality of the Vancouver Sun or the Edmonton Journal.
