Back to blogging
I have been egregiously absent from this blog over the past week or so -- a combination of being out of the country on a mini-vacation; rallying some resources/ideas for summer projects and, yes, a bit of preoccupation with some comings and goings in our little media world on Parliament Hill.
Like everyone, I'm following with interest the emerging new Sun TV channel and what it will mean for politics and journalism here. For now, it seems like some people and I admire, like and respect have received new jobs and some people I admire, like and respect have lost their jobs. In other words, it's complicated. I'm hoping that this new journalistic voice remembers that the world often works this way. And that saying outrageous things doesn't make you interesting/less boring/in touch with dinner-table conversation. It just makes you, well, outrageous.
