Sadly, not really for the Star. And the Globe and Mail is not far behind with their ‘crack’, in-depth research and reporting to inform us all that Doug Ford may have sold hash as a teenager 30 yrs ago. Honestly, I couldn’t give a rats ass if any city councillor made poor decisions as a teenager – Conservative, Liberal, NDP, Green or whatever. especially if there were never any arrests or criminal records involved.
Like politics, it’s all just become trash and gotcha journalism these days with the MSM – absolutely nothing is below them, especially regarding anyone on the right. Rob Ford had it dead right calling out the “maggots”.
Real ‘scandals’ don’t seem to matter if they involve Liberals. The obsessed Media Party is much more interested in helping to remove Rob Ford from the mayor’s office for raising a few thousand dollars for sports equipment for some under-privileged kids. Forget the HALF BILLION+ that the Liberals wasted in Ontario trying save a few seats to hold their majority… not nearly as important to the MSM as flimsy accusations of grab-ass or drug use involving Rob Ford… now that’s front page news!
Desperate for attention much… This is just what one would expect from an advocacy group or an activist organization, but from the media? It’s well past the time that the lefty media in this country stop pretending to be “journalists” and admit that they are nothing less than advocacy activists for the “progressive cause”. Whatever small amount of credibility the media had left is disintegrating by the minute, they’ve completely lost it, and don’t even pretend anymore. “Maggots”… indeed.
Whatever those two Star reporters are doing would earn them a failing grade at first year Rye Journalism.
Oh, yeah, this story will be discussed in Jou Ethics, but not for the reasons those reporters believe.
Just wondering. No lefty city council oddballs are worth investigating?
you know something while she stands there begging for news on anything on Rob Ford, but never did it cross her empty head that part of her icome tax goes to pay CBC so they can live ‘high on the hog’ with her money. Why doesn’t she come down from the rafters and start investigating into CBC expenditures. Or, could it be that CBC is paying into TS so they, star reporters, are to keep their trap shut.
