You’d think by now that the media would reign themselves in a bit after some revelations came out about the private dick whose 2nd hand information from a con-man/extortionist came to light Thursday (see here), but you’d be wrong.
Jennifer Ditchburn of the Canadian Press tops the list of gotcha/yellow journalism that has spewed from the Canadian media on the Guergis/Jaffer saga with a piece titled “Guergis had a history in the clubs with the hometown playboy”.
Yup, you read right…Ditchburn digs into Guergis’ days of growing up in her hometown to produce a story on an old boyfriend. Ditchburn drags this guy into the public spotlight trying to show a pattern of partying and drug use in Guergis’ past.
The Canadian Press should be ashamed to be associated with this type of TMZ-style reporting. (see here)
