A brief diatribe against Postmedia editorial policy

So, I open up the business section of today’s (Wed. July 21) Regina Leader Post, and what do I see: a reprint from Saturday July 17’s National Post. Not only is it dated, it also sucks up a whole page of newsprint that could have better been spent on local business news (and local business is booming, thank you.) Not only do I reject old news, I challenge Postmedia’s business strategy: surely they want people to buy their local daily as well as the national one, but why bother buying the national when you’re just going to get reprints from the national anyway, not just in business but in sports, news and commentary? Do these guys have a strategy, or are they just trying to save money by recycling old news?
