Ottawa Citizen torques headline and story making Cons look like pork-barrellers

Here’s the perfect example of another news story which is intentionally misleading but one in which the offending journo and editor can pretend that it’s fair because there is just enough of the truth in it for them to defend.

Buried 18 paragraphs in the article titled “Tory ridings get more from new federal safety program” by Glen McGregor is the fact that opposition parties received almost twice as many grant approvals than the Conservatives.

This story should have been turned on its head showing how well the opposition parties have fared compared to the ruling Conservatives but of course that wouldn’t fit the Citizen’s agenda. (see here)
