A nice summing up

Of what is wrong with the Canadian media:

It would be a far cry from his treatment among Canada’s elite ensconced in Ottawa, where few would comment even on the value of his home — pegged at $1.3-million by London’s Telegraph newspaper. The pastimes of Mr. Carney’s wife Diana were equally off-limits in Canada. Maclean’s columnist Paul Wells wrote on Twitter that it took the Telegraph “about three hours” to write the story no one in the Parliamentary press gallery — including him — would write during the nearly five years Mr. Carney has been at his post as governor of the Bank of Canada. rmb exchange

I very much admire Carney and wish him all good things as he goes up to the Bigs; but the reality is that the Canadian media really do a remarkably crappy job as they defer to perceived authority.
