Now please keep in mind that the following article in listed in the Toronto Sun under News; not Comment or opinion: Sikh MP battles 'smear campaign'. Reporter Ajit Jain tells us of the brave face that "the youngest Liberal MP" Navdeep Bains is putting on in spite of Stephen Harper's apparent bullying tactics.
This is the paragraph you need to read very carefully:
We all know how Harper got up in the House of Commons and started reading from a report in the Vancouver Sun that the Liberals were opposed to extending life of two sunset clauses in the Anti-Terrorism Act to protect Darshan Singh Saini, Bains' father-in-law, who reportedly is on the RCMP list of potential witnesses in the ongoing Air India criminal investigation.
Is that really what the article reported? Or did Kim Bolan simply list some facts, and let the reader draw his or her own conclusion?
We don't even know exactly what spin the PM was planning to put on the article anyway, because he was shouted down by an obviously well-orchestrated howling chorus of self-serving, sanctimonious Liberals. However, I don't see Reporter Jain mentioning that little tidbit.
So, if you're outraged about this, please consider voicing your opinion.

Monday Update: Rachel Giese's column (Harper's a Bad Boy) is even worse, but at least it's an opinion column. She's obviously anti-Harper and pro-Gore. Hard to take first thing in the morning.
