Back on January 29 of this year we posted a Toronto Star photograph of a man relieving himself within a few meters of Ignatieff who was shaking hands with a constituent in the days leading up to the federal election.
Not so flattering we thought.
Well it looks like the Star is at it again. Based on Steve Russell's photograph on page 4 in today's paper, do you think the Toronto Star has made its point? I don't know that they could have come up with a less flattering picture of Michael Ignatieff on this the day after he announced his candidacy.
Fair and balanced journalism? We say not. What a ridiculous photograph. These editors seem hell bent on undermining this candidates credibility. It is precisely these types of editorial decisions that often end up forming the basis for the acrimonious relationship that exists between the Canadian media and our politicians.
Needless to say, we have had enough and we are canceling our subscription.
