Free Press…

November 22nd, 2009

means having the freedom to do your job without interference, not without effort:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper urged journalists to “shine light into dark corners” of government affairs during a speech late Saturday, but wouldn’t take questions from reporters covering the event…

Freedom for Canadians goes hand-in-hand with journalistic freedom, he told the dinner guests gathered at Seneca College in Markham, home to thriving Asian communities.

Members of the ethnic press and their readers understand what it’s like in countries where “truth is only what the state says it is” and journalists are co-opted as government mouthpieces or threatened with their lives, Mr. Harper said.

So the story is, he doesn’t really believe in freedom of the press because he didn’t take questions.

But lets face it, why should anybody make their job easy? Even when possibly the biggest story in years is handed to them on a silver platter, they don’t report it.

If your not up to speed on the global warming scientists fudging the science, Small Dead Animals has been as good as anybody on this story, and the only credible media outlet in Canada covering it.

    PMSH never makes statements like that, without something in the works, coming down the pipe.
    should be an interesting next couple of weeks.
