MSM Pundits Need A Vacation Too

Greg Weston spouts this pearl of conventional wisdom today:
Jack Layton and the New Democrats seem to be drifting aimlessly, opposed to everything and champions of nothing, gaining votes nowhere they roam.
Do the pundits in Ottawa even pay attention to party positions on issues anymore? It doesn't seem like it. The NDP has spent the last several months trying to champion the environment, for example (there are other issues they are pushing too, but the environment is the most high profile) and yet the pundits in Ottawa still cling to the "official" stories they tell each other, all day long. It isn't just the politicians who need to re-evaluate their attitudes during the summer. The pundits need to think more carefully about their orthodoxies at the cottage this summer, too.
