Sun wins at unintended irony
The Winnipeg Sun, for those of you who are sane enough to ignore it, has been publishing countless fear-mongering attack articles to hurt the Manitoba NDP. They've been trying to get people lose their minds over the provincial deficit and tried to infer that falling revenue due to a global demand slump somehow means that Selinger's been ruining us with reckless spending. Tom Brodbeck, in his usual hack MO, has tried to bring the worst excesses of US style Dumb on Crime politics to Winnipeg (and has succeeded in riling up at least one wannabe vigilante) when not crying wolf over the debt.
I guess being second rate or worse at fear-mongering is something the Winnipeg Sun just can't handle. If their attempts at scaring people don't work, what else are they to do? Journalism?!!
