Magazine fund details announced

The federal government announced changes to how its funding for Canadian magazines is going to work out; it does make me ask, as some media commentators are also asking, if it’s ok to subsidize Canadian magazines going through the same ad crunch every else is, why not include newspapers in the same package?

Meanwhile, I’m holding off commentary on the Supreme Court case on libel and CRTC’s mulling of regulating the new media until the decisions are in. MSM is doing a good job of covering both and I have nothing to add.
