Sun Goes CP Free...Or Not

I've written once or twice...well, once...about the Canoe chain's (Toronto Sun and co.) attempts to wean themselves from Canadian Press wire stories as a cost cutting measure. Well, this week they've been attempting an experiment:

A TSF tipster says Sun Media editors have been told not to use Canadian Press content from April 5 through 10, not even a file shot.

"It is a dry run for when they go AP/CP free on July 1," says the tipster.

Alas! The experiment goes poorly.

Next up: the washroom stalls at 333 King (T.O. Sun HQ) will be made coin-operated.

The boys at 333 King are loosing their parking spots. The little paper that could, can't.
