Another Great Moment In Political Reporting

By the Globe and Mail. There must be a referendum on electoral reform, because the establishment press is rolling out the "democracy is boring" and "the establishment parties (who by the way, are doing such a great job) are opposed to the whole idea of reform" pieces. It is content free reporting at its best. You get the sense that the reporter would rather eat poison than actually try to understand and convey to her readers the system under discussion and why people might be calling for change. Nope, it is all just too hard to understand and by God she is not going to do it. Yup, I have seen this all before, in Ontario, two years ago.
