Toronto Star once again charging for something it cannot give away for free.

They are broke, and now going through the process once more of selling access to their bad journalism.

I love their pretentious sale pitch:

Real journalism is always grounded in fact. Real journalism uncovers hidden truths. Star journalism goes further for you; not only revealing issues but motivating our readers and our leaders to change things for the good of our families, our businesses and our communities. It's your fastest way to the truth and to a solution.

Journalism means we investigate. Justice demands we advocate. All of this comes at a cost.

Register now for free and get limited time, full access to thestar.com. Later, your continued access will require a paid subscription. It's a way for you to support the Star's necessary empowerment of the truth. A way for you to stand beside us as, together, we stand up for your city.

Wherever you are, whenever you need us, we're here.

If they had done real journalism, they would not have to draw attention to it like that.

They have tried this before, and then had to give it away for free, and then no one read it, anyway. The Trudeau regime wouldn't bail them out, perhaps because they also never bothered the Star's shameless pitches for free money in their papers, but it doesn't matter.

Because neither does the Star...
