Today’s Special: Dog’s Breakfast· September 23, 2015
The so-called “Media Party”, the moniker assigned to journalists by the right wing because they think journalists all report the same stories, seems to have forgotten to read yesterday’s pack journalism memo. It’s a dog’s breakfast for news out there, folks.
Part of the reason is none of yesterday’s major news headlines really entered into the election narrative…yet. A triple homicide of three women near Ottawa, the major VW emissions scandal/recall and Clinton’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline simply didn’t register loudly with the journalists covering the election.
Violence against women would, however, be a relevant topic of discussion within the campaign narrative, as yesterday’s Up for Debate event brought the problem into sharp focus.
The most important thing to come from yesterday’s news was Trudeau declaring he will not support Harper as Prime Minister if the election results in a minority government. When asked about supporting Mulcair, he skated. Meanwhile, anyone hoping for cooperation will be pleased that Elizabeth May is suggesting she is setting her sights on the balance of power post election.
