Digging a credibility hole

Here’s a lunch-time update on yesterday’s post. Not content with just selling their front page to the highest bidder, Metro also made it a story in today’s edition.

If you can’t read the image above, allow me to pull out my favourite quote for you:

“Needless to say, both Metro and Rogers are very excited to showcase this Canadian first that exemplifies Metro’s standout advertising offerings,” said Metro Ottawa Publisher Dara Mottahed.

That’s right, friends, Metro is pleased to whore out their advertising offerings in this, the editorial section. Anyone wanna place a bet on how long it will take before a cash-strapped major daily (I’m looking at you, National Post) follows suit?
