Lots of excitement about Rosemary Barton's smackdown of Chris Alexander tonight. Well done Ms. Barton.
But the thing is, it isn't that hard or radical. The Dictator and his lackeys have gotten away for too long bullying the media. Journalists have a responsibility to do this sort of thing to politicians of every stripe. They may have held back for a number of reasons but the fact that Ms. Barton decideded to hold Chris Alexander to account before having a glass of wine is a good thing. Do more and more and more of this.
By all means, pester Harper along these lines too. And Trudeau. And Mulclair. Particularly Mulclair. If he is to run the country, ask the questions.Recommend this Post
