    Its still amazing to me that Star can be delivered to your doorstep daily for about .60 a day including 4 Sundays. It really is a good deal.
    From an aesthetic point of view The Star really has their act together with the 4 color look.
    I guess my love of The Star is more of an addiction than reading compelling content. Don’t know why but somehow scanning The Star daily gets me centered.
    I think Jack touched on the Obits a couple of weeks ago….I just never envision myself going online to see who passed away….so they have that going for them.
    One thing that puzzles me is why they set up INK as a separate entity…fluffy as it is, I still feel all those resources should be in the main edition.

    At the Star, errors are corrected only if everyone in the process is diligent about doing so. The number of corrections has often been cited on evaluations as rationale for a salary raise or lack thereof…inconsistently, of course, depending on the person. Sometimes 2 corrections a year is deemed acceptable and viewed as a fine record of accuracy, and sometimes 2 corrections a year is viewed as a sign that the writer/editor is barely competent and an embarrassment to journalism. Because reporters and editors can be punished for corrections, all those involved have motivation not to turn themselves in, or if a reader complains directly to a reporter or editor, to let that complaint die there. Only the most egregious and obvious errors, or those pursued by readers/sources with clout or persistence, lead to published corrections….Of course, I could be wrong.

    hearne…stick to stories about drugs/hot black strippers/pu$$y/and rants about old rock n rollers. The star deal is getting real boring.

    bscholz – They have to separate Ink from the Star due to conflicts of interest. Ink is subsidized by advertisers who get preferential treatment in the paper; for obvious reasons the Star (as de facto “newspaper of record”) can’t do this.

    That, and Ink is a not-so-subtle attempt to kill the Pitch.

    You can sign up for breaking news emails which, while not as fast as tv/radio/internet, are not all that bad.
