Here’s how you measure in journalism if you got the story correct.
After 40 years and working at seven major media outlets, you get to know these things a bit.
If a journalist writes a story and the offended are offended by questionable facts, the offended are on the phone to the journalist or his or her editor in a split second.
Well guess what? The City of Ottawa has had since about halfway through Thursday afternoon to question the facts of the city’s advertising blacklisting of The Bulldog.
Not a peep.
The strategy is that if you don’t complain about the story (because it’s right), you hope the story goes away.
The story is right. The Bulldog is being blacklisted.
Blacklisting potential advertisers is not in the mandate of the City of Ottawa and is terribly unfair.
You’d hate to see this story hang on so long that it becomes an election issue next year.
