A Happy Week For The Star

April 4, 2009 @ 13:32

It was another despicable showing by the Toronto Star this week as it tried to make a mountain out of virtually nothing during the G20 Summit in London.

On Thursday Steven Harper missed a group photo with the other G20 leaders and the Star was quick to position the Prime Minister as a goof ball who missed a very important photograph because he was somewhere having a piss.

In reality it meant nothing. Harper claims he was being briefed at the time and didn't concern himself with the photo opportunity because as he put it "I"ve been at enough international meetings to know that there's always another photo op."

Bingo. It was no big deal at all, but the Star reported the story using words like "red faced and ridiculed" trying to paint a picture of a Prime Minister who was out of step with the rest of the world's leaders and that his office "was at pains to explain away any embarrassment."

What a load of unfairly slanted, disgusting bullshit.

In the end the Prime Minister was correct; there was another photo op, and this time the Italian Prime Minister failed to show.

It's one thing for a news publication to attack and criticize someone for valid reasons, but the Toronto Star's constant unfounded attacks on Stephen Harper are no better than the Fox News Channel's mindless attacks on Barrack Obama.

Remember, it's the Star that in the past has printed stuff about Harper's clothes and his weight.

What a mindless little rag.

I'm so glad it wasn't Mrs. Harper who put her arm on the Queen.

THAT, would have been HEADLINE news in the Star.

Fred if a Liberal PM had made this gaffe your posting would have a different spin. Can't we have a chuckle at Stephen's expense?

I'd agree with you, but you end this blog entry with "What a mindless little rag." In essence, you just made a big deal about a trivial story which everyone will forget after a day.

Ah, whether a big town newspaper or a humble blogger, they're all the same...

And I thought it was just me,the Star's repetive whinning about Harper is just tiresome. For those who missed today's editorial here's a synopsis : nag, nag, nag, nag, Harper, nag, nag,nag, nag, Conservatives, nag, nag, nag, nag.

May well be Sanchez was just jealous how the War Criminals in the government do not call him "indispensible". That sort of rejection should certainly hurt.

Great that Lindsay Lohan is getting serious in regard to herself, she calls for rehabilitation like Mel Gibson should get a professional, with luck this woman will not get freed from rehabilitation prematurely this time as getting discharged early from UCLA was likely the main fact why the lady relapsed so very fast in the very first place, now i'm praying for you personally entirely Lindsay, seriously you'll be able to stop your destructive habits.

Lohan blames a part of her issues around the tabloids idealizing hard partying stars, declaring “I would look up to those young females … the Britneys and what ever. And I will be like, I would like to become that.” She proceeded to state that, “I see where that’s gotten me now,” she says, “and I don't want it.”

Lindsay Lohan Is going to Rehabilitation Today, She is merely carrying this out for a stunt to attempt to decrease her sentencing in Oct or even totally keep from any incarceration. This woman is so crystal clear and predictable.

Who have the bravery to tell Sanchez never to add mayo in the corned beef on rye? He is from Miami. You may sense he would know.

Was the booing of Sarah Palin on previous night's 'Dancing With the Stars' wrong? truly do not like Sarah Palin, do not pay money for her book. Just do not end up her Facebook friend. Definitely don't vote for her but you should have some manners, booing is so irritating.
