How is it possible for the omission of Liberal and NDP leaders Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau in the CP story posted on the CBC titled “Canadian leaders react to Ariel Sharon’s death”? (see here)
I’ve asked CP’s bureau chief Heather Scoffield for the reason and she responded that she is checking into it.
Update: Scoffield has only so far responded that in the original story, NDP’s Paul Dewar was quoted. I repeatedly asked if Mulcair had been interviewed and also pointed out the story’s lede is “Current and former Canadian leaders are speaking out today about Ariel Sharon’s legacy” and that Dewar is not a leader.
Update: CBC has now changed the headline to “Ariel Sharon staunch defender of Israel, Stephen Harper says”
Update: Postmedia has also run its piece on Sharon’s death with no comment from either Mulcair of Trudeau (see here)
