Why not mention the competition?

A great column today in the London Free Press (which I “stole” the headline from) asking the same question many have been asking about The Globe and Mail’s coverage of university presidential contracts: why didn’t they give proper credit to The Hamilton Spectator on Thursday?

To make matters worse, there was nothing original in The Globe and Mail article – it was a rehash of what had already been wrote more than a week prior to them waking up to the story.

The least The Globe and Mail could have done was given credit to the people that actually did the work in the much loathed “local media.”

The Spectator did the legwork on this story – they deserve credit for both the time and money they invested in getting these contracts.
