The National Post was once head-and-shoulders above what other newspapers offered and sneering at others for garbage journalism used to be commonplace by their journos but they long ago lost the right to look down their noses at others.
Case in point is their top columnist, Andrew Coyne’s latest where he joins the Toronto Star (see here) in writing about anonymous-sourced and confidential medical information on Rob Ford:
Apparently all did not go quite according to plan during Rob Ford’s stint in rehab. The Toronto Star, quoting sources at the GreeneStone facility north of Toronto, reports His Worship spent most of his time there alone in his room watching TV.
Group therapy sessions were marked by physical and verbal attacks on other inmates.
And to top it off, Coyne seriously wrote this:
He may even have been on drugs the whole time. (see here)
Now keep in mind that it was Coyne who spiked the Jack Layton whorehouse story and had this to say about Sun News at the time:
“I guess all I can say is I’d rather be caught naked in a massage parlour than fully clothed working for SunNews” (see here)
Coyne’s morals and integrity are self-admittedly interchangeable and the National Post who pays him, has turned into the Star.
