It’s not what you say but how you say it

Let’s engage in a “compare and contrast” exercise.

Compare and contrast the following coverage of yesterday’s announcement of transit security funding:

Ottawa doles out anti-terror funds” (CanWest’s site)
Ottawa pledges security cash, again and again” (Globe and Mail, A6)

Now one issue does not a bias reveal but it sure is interesting, isn’t it?

Oh, and for those who don’t know, I’ve stepped down from my post at Maisonneuve’s MediaScout, largely because I want to recommit myself to this site and the Society itself.  In the short term, that hopefully means more updates.  In the medium to long term, I hope that means much, much more.
