The Globe And Mail Becomes More Like A Blog

Rarely do I have something good to say about The Globe And Mail but surprisingly today is one of those days.

I noticed today that the G&M now provides a means to leave comments on all of it's stories. They may have been allowing this for weeks for all I know but I like how the comments are included with the main page of the article like you'd see on a blog. See here for an example.

They even provide a means to link directly to the comment. Very smart.

Of course as a media outlet they screen the messages before posting them which given legal reasons is probably a good idea. It will be interesting to see if any bias can be detected in how they screen the comments.

All-in-all a very smart move.
