Stupid Media…

leave a comment »

I have a love/hate relationship with the Globe and Mail, one of Canada’s premier national newspapers.  Today it’s all about the hate.  This morning I woke up to an article about Harper traveling to the States to conduct a series of media interviews (link).  Here’s the lovely little spin they’ve decided to put on it:

It’s part of a strategy to limit his Canadian interrogations – where the questions tilt toward the specifics of Canada’s troubled domestic economy – in favour of foreign media who can be expected to compare this country favourably to its international partners.

It’s nice how the Globe embraces reporting drawn out of thin air.  The sad thing is that millions of Canadians will wake up and most likely take this idea at face value.  They will believe they now have insight into Harpers master plan to manipulate us all.

The really sad thing is that the article contradicts itself completely.  In the direct paragraph before they write:

Mr. Harper did provide Radio-Canada with a rare interview on Thursday evening and is scheduled to give another tomorrow to CTV.

It’s just so dissapointing that this is from one of the premier news sources in Canada.  To close, I’ll offer a few oher spins on why Harper may be headed South.

  • Talk up the Canadian American trade relationship to help dissolve protectionist sentiment.
  • Try and garner American support for the initiatives Canada wants to push at the upcoming G20 summit.
  • Return the courtesy president Obama showed Canada in his latest visit.
