Consumerism is the new religion. Quantity is the new divinity. Advertising is its liturgy. Advertising is schooling in false desire.
– John O’Donohue
Newspapers are not free and they never have been. They can appear to be so, but someone, somewhere is covering the costs whether that is through advertising, a patron’s largesse or a license fee. Advertising is no longer subsidising the industry and so the cost must fall somewhere – why not on the people who use it?
