While I only ever buy The Age or The Australian, if I can find a copy of the Herald Sun lying around, I am happy to flick through it. The letters page is always a good way to inform yourself of what misguided Abbott supporters are thinking about. Truly great coffee shop reading.
The Herald Sun is part of the now very discredited Murdoch's empire, along with Sydney's Daily Telegraph and innumerable other Australian newspapers.
The Herald Sun is the News International's experimental Australian newspaper to see how online newspapers can make money, apart from intrusive advertising. So, the Herald Sun introduced digital passes to its electric newspaper. To read most stories you are required to sign up for a digital pass, which is free, for the time being but later there will be a charge. Like I don't pay for the Herald Sun, nor will I be paying to read the electric version.
I used to check the electric Herald Sun daily to skim the headlines as there might have been something I wanted to read, but now, I have pretty well stopped going to the website at all. Besides, this seem to work well enough. Copy and paste the story headline into Google and the whole story is there.
