After raising plenty of eyebrows with its head office-mandated endorsement of the Harper Conservatives on Friday, the PostMedia chain of newspapers invited further ridicule with a front page paid political advertisement that was carried nationally in the Saturday edition.
The ad, which mimicked the yellow colour scheme favoured by Elections Canada, was from the Conservatives naturally, and warned about the dire consequences that awaited Canadians if they dared turf the Cons and elect a Liberal or NDP led government.
I don’t subscribe, so I’ve yet to see one. But if you click on this Huffington Post link you’ll find samples from across the country. So score another point for corporate media, I guess.
And tomorrow is FINALLY election day!
