In National Post misses mark in Erickson editorial, The Black Rod applauds the Post for 'breaking ranks' with the rest of MSM, and highlighting the story, but also criticizes the newspaper for not going far enough.
The story of the collusion between the CBC and the Liberal Party of Canada is a watershed in journalism in the country.
Never before has the great divide between the Old Media and New Media been so stark.
I noticed that too, but probably the Post had to protect itself legally, because the name of the reporter in question has never been officially released by the CBC.
But why the apparent 'code of silence' among the rest of the media?
One theory is that the CBC employs many free-lance journalists, so few are anxious to stick their necks out.
Therefore, this appears to not only be a collusion between the LPC and the CBC, but also between most of MSM.
Where is the transparency in a supposedly democratic society?
Why are so many media sources in Canada simply not doing their job?
