Whether itâ€™s conflicting positions on environmental policy, the treatment of Taliban prisoners, or whoâ€™s going to trigger the next election, the mediaÂ are always ready to give us their opinions, even if we don’t want them.
The Canadian Liberal media doesnâ€™t tryÂ particularly hard to hide their bias.Â Whenever the Conservative government announces new policy, the media do [...]
It seems that CanWest Global, part of the Liberal’s media division, has commissioned a poll through Ipsos-Reid.Â I don’t normally read much into the results of polls, and that’s not the point of this post anyway.Â What I find interesting, although not surprising, is the how the results are presented.
