Gentlemen from Hooker - and many other places - are quite literally pouring these and many other poisons into your coffee and your kids' juice. They just do it in a more indirect, anonymous, and apparently socially acceptable way.

The Star's biased reporting

By Ulli Diemer

Letter to the Editor, Toronto Star:

According to the Star, residents of Al Leach's riding attending a public meeting in their own riding are "party crashers", while Tories brought in "from around the province" are there to "bolster" the event.

George Orwell would be impressed. Residents of the community are illegitimate intruders at a public meeting to discuss the future of their community. Outsiders brought in to tell them that resistance is futile are the forces of legitimacy.

Clearly the Star's journalistic standards have crashed beyond any possibility of bolstering. Sad news for those who can remember when the Star was something more than a government propaganda sheet.
