A TSF reader snapped this gathering of freebee boxes at Yonge and Finch, steps from a TTC entrance. Is this the Sun's future? Free for the taking to pump up circulation figures for the advertising dollar?
There is nothing wrong with free, but don't expect a commitment to competitive local news coverage.
This was posted on January 8th. Tellingly enough, though, on the 9th a commenter wrote that "it was still full today".
Meanwhile, 24, the Sun's free counterpart, which everyone has assumed is making money, appears to be having problems of its own (click on picture left for clarification).
