In a unprecedented departure for a monthly magazine, Toronto Life has entered the fray of daily journalism by arming freelancer Douglas Bell with a dedicated Web digest of the Conrad Black trial, goings-on around the courthouse, and its coverage in the media. In addition to links to archived articles and trial backgrounders, the site features a live ticker of defence costs and a daily you-be-the-jury poll.
