"fibs and subterfuge" Much nicer than lying and deception "Newfoundland MHAs were lining their pockets back in the late 1990s and early 2000s." lining their pockets Much nicer than stealing and cheating "Irresponsible rumour-mongers start the ball rolling" when a cowered press fail to address the story in a meaningful way. "People are naturally suspicious. In some cases, too suspicious." People are naturally trusting. In some cases, too trusting. Stay suspicious Newfoundland. Keep your eye on the ball.

Maurice is right of course. This is a very lame article - so lame and disjointed, in fact, that it doesn't merit much comment. I will say that Andrew Coyne, whose views Jackson cites, is technically a good writer but one who eagerly embraces the National Post right wing bias. Only post-Duffygate has he and colleagues like Rex Murphy allowed themselves to move a tad further away from the Harper cheering section. No doubt they sense the water is rising rapidly and, like journalistic rats everywhere, think it's a good time to abandon ship.

This article works its way around to eventually point the finger first and foremost on the "rumour-mongers (that) start the ball rolling".............. What a poor attempt at spin doctoring and deflecting criticism away from those who made the wrong choices/decisions in the first place and then tried to cover them up.
