Or, as it's known...

...to the rest of the population... "leadership"...ask a professional journalistAh, yes, the inevitable "seizing." You can almost picture the Prime Minister's rough dirty hands closing around some completely inoffensive treehugger's throat.

Funny how, if you're a "professional" journalist and it involves Stephen Harper... events inevitably have that sharp, merciless, bloody edge...

"Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver came out guns blazing... Mr. Harper really put the premiers on defence".
Good grief... seems those evil, controlling Conservatives are always perpetuating (if only figuratively) violence on the hapless, well-meaning Opposition...
"a storyline that sticks helped the Conservatives sink two successive Liberal leaders... Critics and stakeholders were left struggling".
Yes, my children... if only we still had the soothing touch of a wise, compassionate Laytonesque healer to soothe our fevered collective brow.

I've gotta ask... do these folks ever listen to themselves? They apparently just don't know when to turn down the volume. No wonder the print media is going down the shitter.

Bring it, you dumb bunnies. It's why, in no small part... we have a Conservative majority government.

"Building a storyline that sticks helped the Conservatives sink two successive Liberal leaders and they are using the same strategy early in 2012 on a pair of major policy debates facing Canadians.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's team has attempted to leap out in front of its opponents and shape the narrative on the hot-button issues of health-care funding and oil pipeline construction."

Thanks much for sharing your unbiased non-partisan expert opinion, Jennifer Ditchpig. If anyone knows about the noble craft of narrative building and storyline shaping, it's you and your CBC pals.

Although I don't agree with your opinions, I support your right to share them. Like many other people, I only object to being forced to pay for these opinions disguised as news.. which isn't a problem while said opinions are confined to the Red Star or Hope and Fail. And it might be a good idea to add "irony detection training" to the Globe's employee induction prodedure.

I couldn't agree with you more. It think elections over the past year or two and likely for a while yet are really about the MSM. Basically, people are voting for whomever the mainstream media denigrated the most, or at the very least, are completely ignoring the MSM's blatant attempts to sway the voter and get their own man/woman leftie candidate elected.
