This is a general blog about newspaper issues that matter to press councils and others as they assess the fairness of media coverage. This is NOT, however, an official blog for a press council or any other organization.
A Parliament Hill journalist with Postmedia, I'm also a former editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard and a former reporter, editorial writer and senior editor for the Ottawa Citizen. I served as a professional member of the Ontario Press Council from 2006 to 2010, but any views I express should not be construed as those of the OPC or my employer. These postings are meant solely to share media trends and themes with those interested in press council mandates and newspaper ethics.
