We need a new phrase today for when the media lose their collective minds flogging a story beyond death as Glen McGregor and Stephen Maher are doing.
If you thought their last piece (see here) was garbage, take a look at the spew that the Ottawa Citizen ran today:

My advice to this call-centre, put a very good lock on your garbage dumpster.
