Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thank you for sending the link. I'll pass it on to the people who take the decisions on our site....
I must say that, whatever the reservations I have about putting the blogs behind the paywall, I don't buy the argument that good quality news gathering and analysing must inevitably come at no cost on the internet. There will be fewer and fewer free sources as they go out of business. Picking up stuff from the CBS, ABC or even BBC website won't quite do it I think... To illustrate my point with an example on my patch, not one of those powerful broadcasters has a permanent reporter in Paris!
