When dealing with the NDP over the inclusion of the government's former lawyer on the panel of "arbiters" the media must:
1. Treat the NDP member like the representative of the school A/V Club crashing the athletic banquet.
2. Dismiss any possible perceived conflict of interest in appointing a lawyer who until last month was working solely for the government, as impudence.
3. In short, treat the whole affair as yet another he said/he said moment, that has become the mother's milk of Canadian journalism.
It must make the PMO proud as punch to have such a well trained group of monkeys working in the Ottawa press corps.
