The new tarted-up, glossy, all-colour Globe and Mail is many things, but it is not a real "news paper."
It has been "dumbed up" and robbed of much of its news content.
The result is a hybrid never before seen in North America. It is some of the old Globe of course. But is also part Maclean's magazine and The Economist. It is part National Geographic, Sporting News, Vanity Fair, and Women's Wear Daily.
