Vancouver Sun Embarrasses Themselves

The newspaper situation in Vancouver really is pretty grim. I walked by the Vancouver Sun box on the street this morning and saw a big headline, "A Cabinet Built in the West", underneath smiling photos of a bunch of Western MP's including, if I recall correctly, Jay Hill, Jason Kenney, Diane Ablonczy and maybe more people who are, you know, *not in the cabinet*.

I guess if you decided to buy the paper you could read the smaller print which tells you that when they wrote the story, "A Cabinet Built in the West", the cabinet hadn't been formed yet. Given that many of the Westerners they pictured are not in cabinet after all, is it time for a retraction?

Maybe the next time the Sun devotes its front page not to news, but to its own (poorly informed) speculation, they could at least do us the favour of adding a question mark to the end of the headline.

  • Plus, of course, one of the members of the cabinet is/was a Liberal...

    Man, they beed to buff their crystal balls, instead.

  • The newspaper situation in the entire province of B.C. is starkly grim, I dare say. Doesn't matter what the hell Campbell, our glorious premier, or any other B.C. "Liberal" does, for instance, the newspapers are way cool with it. You might even think they were biased.

    Ehh, I could go on..
