This from the Sixth Estate:

Over the past 24 hours, bloggers have noticed what I can’t describe as anything but the scariest thing I have ever seen in Canada. Free media organizations are pulling stories critical of Harper off of their websites — not only that, but replacing them with banal stories about mildly related issues.

Click here to link to the story and all the weird links to the banal and mildly related intrigue. If there’s no technical explanation, then it’s very creepy.

One thought on “Curious”

  1. Mainstream media was really manufacturing momentum for Harper in Week 1: CTV Newsnet ran that wink, wink, nudge, nudge, let’s all get a little smug together “loser goon NDP candidate drops out in Ontario to help Liberal coalition memeber” story even tho the NDP is renominating. But, if you listened to some of the partial-neanderthals on talk radio, even they admitted the Harper team was really annoyingly-to-them MIA in Week 1. Just another case of mainstream being outta it, “thinking” – “okay, now it’s time, for the good of the country, to just help this guy get a majority…” while Ignatieff totally surges in popularity, creating a new storyline in which maybe Canadians WANT a new government. Maybe, just maybe, it’s not a Harper majority but a Harper retirement that Canada wants and now, okay, are comfortable that there’s a competent statesman to replace him. We’ll see if media picks up on that.
