The news media and the Ontario election today

The Globe and Mail editorial this morning does the usual, fear-mongering hatchet job on the NDP while giving the Cons a free pass for doing almost exactly the same things from the right for business. This does not help the NDP. On the other hand, also in the G and M this morning, the timing of Rob Ford’s widow’s law suit against Doug Ford claiming financial malfeasance which damaged her family’s ability to survive and asking for a remedy of 16 million or so many damage Ford. (I think the timing was calculated to do this damage.) Of course, and here is a massive generalization, how many Ford voters actually read the G and M; they probably read the Sun/ post media papers where Ford will likely be given absolution because he is their business baby-boy saviour.
