All the news that's fit to ... hey, bright shiny thing!

Dear "Torch":

Remember that most recent piece you did on Christie Blatchford -- that fawning, obsequious paean to her journalistic skills?

"Richard Colvin's story of widespread torture and indifference is unravelling"

That according to Brian Lilley, Ottawa Bureau Chief for radio stations Newstalk 1010 in Toronto and CJAD 800 in Montreal (links in original):

Leaks abound on the issue of torture in Afghanistan. Those supporting and those opposing the claims of Richard Colvin are trying hard to make sure that Canadian journalists have access to the documents at the centre of the controversy.

The Globe and Mail columnist and Newstalk 1010 commentator Christie Blatchford has her hands on redacted copies of Richard Colvin's emails and finds his evidence wanting.

Actually, Torch boys, things have changed slightly since then. I just thought I'd point that out. Feel free to do an update, you know, whenever.

No rush.

P.S. This moist and sticky thing you Torch kids have for Blatchford? Kind of creepy. I'm just sayin'.

AFTERSNARK: You pretty much have to know what's coming next:

Which makes this still so milk-snortingly funny:

I do not watch Canadian news, it is so biased it is not credible anymore.

What I do is go to Blogging Tories to find the latest news.

I swear, that one's just never getting old.
