So the Globe has cleared all the politicians and all the good BC Liberals in the Basi Virk escapade… It’s no longer a real scandal just a bad incident, a small escapade.
Except the Globe and their partner CTV did it on the basis of only one side of the story. Their application only asked for the prosecution’s filings in court. Missing and still sitting on the shelf is the other side of the story. Because the defense filed documents as well, documents debunking the prosecution’s case and findings.
The question for the Globe is why? Why toss aside objective reporting and report only one side of the story? Why pay your lawyer to only apply for half the story? Why print that when your reporters know contradictory facts and fact patterns exist? Just who benefits from that kind of reporting?
This is becoming common place with the Globe/CTV partnership. Last week they did the deed for John Furlong and Vanoc, helping him beat back a negative CBC story.
God forbid the National Post becoming the go to source for “objective” reporting.
