Feeling the heat from his journo peers, the Ottawa Citizen’s Glen McGregor wrote a lengthy “defence” of his embarrassingly sordid blog post detailing the private lives of some Conservative MPs.
One particularly interesting point for me was that McGregor confirmed my question about whether his editor ok’ed this TMZ-style of journalism as Melanie Coulson refused to answer me when asked and looks to have erased a Tweet on her acceptance of the word “slut”. (see here)
Update: I finally did hear back from Coulson but only to ask me to remove her photo as “property of the Ottawa Citizen”. I have asked her to get the legal department to make that a formal request from Citizen/Postmedia.
This is becoming a regular censorial occurrence from the journos at that newspaper (see here).
