The Tribune Co, based in Chicago, has once again proven the truism that you cannot successfully operate a newspaper for an illiterate population, although their last major redesign did give the local Sentinel a decidedly comic book appeal.
Most of Broward County's population is nearly or completely illiterate. They are currently being pacified with "shovel-ready" jobs paving over much of the area, but cannot be trusted to paint School Crossing signs on asphalt which they persistently misspell.
What's a Chicago Media Corp Syndicate to do?
Create a very exclusive readership club
with very expensive membership dues.
And, thus, Gentle Reader, The Sun Sentinel
will be erecting a pay wall on April 9th.
We are saddened, but not surprised, by this news.
Do let us know when they become a weekly.
