The online editor for the Ottawa Citizen, Andrew Potter has a new feature called “Parliament goes rogue” which curiously has him playing BlackBerry with the CBC’s Scott Reid and Kady O’Malley (see here).
So, why is a Postmedia editor using his competition instead of in-house journos? Was there no one available or willing to work with him?
I wonder what those Postmedia employees who had their jobs cut recently think about Potter employing these two?
I’ll go out on a limb and guess that they wouldn’t find Scott Reid’s reply to me amusing though:
It certainly wouldn’t be what the Sun’s Brian Lilley was talking about with the cosy little relationship that has the Ottawa Press Gallery being bought-off by the CBC when he slapped-down Potter before right? (see here)
