You know what's so neat about the Internets? They have a long memory. Like from back here, when I introduced you to the Blogging Tories' Brian Lemon and his ambitious plan to start cataloguing all that evil, left-wing bias in the Canadian media.
As Brian put it:
It is important that when someone is presented to the public as a person worthy of comment on a particular topic, that if there is a perceived bias or conflict of interest, that this be revealed.
Fuckin A', dude, I am so down with that. So ... it's been over two months, Brian ... how are things going? Oooooooh ... not so well. Who exactly has fallen afoul of Brian's determined search for the truth? Well, there's this guy:
David Herle - Liberal Communications Advisor
Was communications director for Liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin and was CEO of Earnscliffe which has come under scrutiny for the firm's relationship to the former Prime Minister.
Damn! What nerve! What chutzpah! What overwhelming duplicitude! My God ... if only Brian had presented any examples of his media bias, it would have been a slam-dunk case. And what about this sleazy weasel?
Robin Sears - NDP Communications Advisor
National director of the New Democratic Party (1974-81)
From 1981-85, he was Deputy Secretary General of the Socialist International
From 1985-90, served as Chief of Staff to Ontario NDP party leader Bob Rae
Likely the most likeable and moderate of all the Duff Newman commentators, Joy was a minister in Dosanjh's NDP government in British Columbia.
And then -- brace yourself -- there's this wretch:

whose appalling disregard for fairness and balance is so egregious that it cannot be exposed to the light of day for fearing of harming the children.
Yes, I can see the debate resolution now: "Resolved: That the Canadian mainstream media has a flagrant and pernicious liberal bias."
Yes, I think Brian's ready to tackle that one. I'd pay to see that. Really. I would.
