Let me get this straight – Kinsella keeps job at Sun Media yet Goldstein loses his?

In a round of cut-backs at Sun Media (see here), I saw that a great writer and the classiest journo I’ve run across, Lorrie Goldstein, was let go.

I have had many contacts with Lorrie on-line and have found him to be incredibly fair, open-minded and willing to engage in the most respectful way so I was personally sad to see him lose his job but also because it is a loss for Canadian journalism. Then I got mad after seeing Warren Kinsella was still employed.

To which Kinsella, revelling in it, wished a few of us who were not impressed this:

@kinsellawarren: @mooseandskwerl @pottypol59 @bcbluecon I hope it gives all of you a strike.

What Kinsella meant to write was that he hoped we had a ‘stroke’ and when confronted by blogger Alberta Ardvark, quickly deleted the tweet replacing it with “palpitations”.

Classy as well as hilarious right?

    butt kicker K is the most hypocritical and disrespectful of all the classless lieberals, and Sun should be ashamed of their decision – his inflated ego and vicious ramblings may sell some newspapers, but is a huge part of the demise of those very liberals

      C’mon people. Most of us utterly loath the man but Kinsella is just a useful idiot for SUN. It forces all too soft Liberals to secretly read The SUN and they’ll always deny it of course. But data folks in marketing surely know.

    Well there’s another newspaper to cancel our subscription to……
    Is the Sun Media really just a big pretender, pretending to be the Conservative voice then gradually sneaking in the Leftoids?

    A token, a Liberal pet. That is all he is.

    It is sad to see Lorrie gone as he was a good quality journalist, something this country is in short supply of. For myself, I like having Kinsella on as he is great for comic relief and as a reminder of how fortunate we are that he is no longer close to power.

    I enjoyed Mr. Goldstein’s editorials, too bad, he is one of the better ones. Kinsella, I’ll keep my mouth shut on that one.

    “I hope it gives all of you a strike” LOL!

    Doesn’t it suck when you are trying to get a smart alek shot in and you screw up and it winds up making YOU look like the moron?

    Kinsella’s doofussy attempt to get a shot in reminds me of that scene in the Adam Sandler movie “Happy Gilmor”.

    Bad guy (threatening Sandler) – “Grrrrrrr, Listen scumbag, I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!”

    Sandler – “You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?”

    Bad guy “Uh… oh ..d-oh!” (Leaves frustrated).

    Yep, wait to go Kinsella!

    Sorry to see Lorrie go…he is one of the better journo’s.

    Kinsella seems to be getting more influence at the Sun.
    His girlfriend, looking like a stiff Stepford Wife, opines occasionally on Sun TV about what a great leader Dalton has been.
    Kinsella had my comment about Mazza quoting him as being a lion tamed by his new squeeze banned from the Sun comment section.
    Why the Sun has kept him, introduced his girlfriend as a part timer and fired Goldstein is a great question.

  10. john Says:

    Maybe Goldstien could have kept his job if he had gone Neo-Nazi hunting by wandering around men’s rooms with a digital camera. It seems to have worked for others…….. 😀

    And David Akin still has a job too, I take it. 8^(

    Kinsella’s girlfriend is Lisa Kirbie, another Liberal who writes about herself in the third person.

    I am done with the Sun….will never read it again

  14. old white guy Says:

    i see kinsella’name and photo and immediately disregard the article.

  15. Scott M Says:

    Wow I can’t believe it! Lorrie Goldstein was THE voice of reason and common sense. I enjoyed his articles and listening to him on Adler. Kinsella is a goof and token liberal **** disturber. Lorrie won’t be out of work for long.

  16. E Mac Says:

    What is Kinsella even doing working for SUN?
    Is the President loosing his marbles? Apparently so!

  17. dmorris Says:

    Sorry to see Goldstein go, but love reading the sophistry of Kinsella.

    Reading the liberal viewpoint at Sun is preferable to having to wade through liberal/Liberal BS at all the other sites, where currently they’re fixed on “isn’t Justin JUST dreamy” all the time.

    I would expect that Sun made the decision based on numbers of readers and comments, not favoritism. I could be wrong.
