Of a six paragraph column (apparently) on Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale suing Rob Ford, Macleans’ Paul Wells devoted the first three paragraphs comparing this legal action to PM Stephen Harper’s 2008 lawsuit against the Liberal leader Stephane Dion (see here).
Besides the flimsy reason offered that people were “tut-tutting” both civil suits, you really have to wonder what Harper has to do with Ford, so I asked:
And beyond being thin-skinned and lashing out at those who dare challenge him, it’s also very worthy to note how Wells replied to a comment left below his column:
According to Wells, the Star keeping Dale covering City Hall is “a judgment call” – not unethical journalism.
I can only guess when book sales are lagging, an author does whatever they can to sell another six copies or so?
