Probably not the greatest, but Fetterman's team has done a very good job of beating on Oz without mercy. Who knows if it will translate into a win.

It's acceptable for followup coverage, when the basic questions of what/where/when/how/why have been answered and chronicled. When it's served up as filler to a breaking story (as is often the case - even at the CBC), those responsible should be horsewhipped.

Wasn't radio professional (and God Emperor to many vocal board contributors) Mike Stafford banned from SOWNY for unwarranted comments?

Not sure why some care what 'Monsieur Moore' says.....If someone isn't 'left' enough for him or not from his homeland in Quebec, he has an issue. Too bad people can't make their own minds up and not rely on what others say. That's why I have never read the Editorial Page. I am capable of forming my own opinion instead of relying on a gaggle of self-absorbed 'pundits' 

He's not a pundit. He's the host. Frau Lantsman was often the pundit with the agenda to push.

He didn't just invoke the Lord while shilling for a shady car business, he pimped out his family for it as well. His radio career was defined by punching down and making weak minds weaker. He caused real harm.

Also of note - Mr. Moore was quite frosty to her on the interview this morning. He seemed rather interested about who she is now committed to.

She got quite snotty this afternoon when the topic was sourced from a Toronto Sun article. One of the panellists suggested that the basis of the article may not be rooted in reality (a fair assertion considering the source).

She got hostile and had to have the last word.

She would be a better host if she didn't do that.

On CFRB Evan Solomon carried it with his characteristically over-the-top hyperbole, and still managed to fudge up some of the facts - stating that she was queen at 21 (she was actually 26 when she became queen).

I have to confess I have absolutely zero memory of this, but before there was CTV News Channel there was this. Anyone remember it from 1997? 

I remember it like it was yesterday. My colleagues and I gathered round a monitor and just took it in. We initially thought it was a parody, but the chuckling faded as it became apparent it was a serious thing.

I rather enjoyed Bruce's posts on the previous iteration of sowny. IIRC he left because of the Ziggy trolling.

As for Agar, well, let's just say a little teabagging goes a long way.

Are any of CFRB's stable of on-air PR professionals working crisis management for Bell on this issue? Will they declare it if they are and recuse themselves from the topic of Bell v Laflamme if it comes up?
