Gloria Watch IV

Well, I've been watching Gloria Galloway's stuff from the Globe & Mail over the last year and a half now. She's running about 70%/30%... 70% negative about the Federal Tories, and about 30% being either neutral or positive.

So, rather than just complaining once again about the kind of article she writes, I'm going to start keeping score... this post is about the fourth recorded instance I can find in my blog about Gloria's writting. Keep your eyes peeled for future "Gloria Watch" posts, and maybe we'll finally start to convince the nay-sayers. (that being those who don't believe that bias in the MSM exists)

Here's today's contribution... globeandmail.com: Long-time Tory angrily quits party over trusts. You be the judge.

And now, for your ongoing viewing pleasure, here is the "Official Gloria Galloway vs. Federal Tory Scoreboard"!

The GG Scoreboard:
Negative - 5
Positive/Netural - 2

(current scores are based on my recollection of her past stories, and a quick review/averaging this morning of her articles posted online at the Globe & Mail)

    I find the cries of bias in the MSM to be extremely tired.

    First of all, most people -- especially those who bother to pick up a paper in the first place -- are not morons. For instances of bias, they'll pick it out.

    Secondly, the left, right, and centre are all well represented in the Canadian MSM. Even in media sources where there's a predominant left or right slant, you've typically got representatives from the opposing camps.

    Gloria Galloway is but one columnist in one paper. Even if she did spout nothing but "Harper eats kittens" stories", this would still mean nothing.
