Do you remember the big brouhaha over Peter Mackay implying that Belinda Stronach was a dog?

How that was a leading story for a few news cycles, and how outraged the media acted over Peter implying that?

Well, if so, feast your eyes on this...





Given how recent the Mackay/Stronach 'dog' incident was, I'm actually amazed at the sheer gall of the media to have a cover story with that title. It is the heights of hypocrisy.

What do my fellow posters here think?

Is there any behavior you WON'T excuse?

I hope she sues them.

Journalists are scumbags.

Mr. Jaffer did not respond to interview requests but emailed a short statement from his company, Green Power Generation (GPG), which said, "Mr. Jaffer is a valued partner of GPG. The allegations in The Toronto Star are inaccurate and a complete mischaracterization of the contact between Mr. Jaffer, a principal of GPG, and Mr. Nazim Gillani of International Strategic Investments (ISI).

"In light of the publication GPG intends to seek legal action against The Toronto Star."

I am sure with all the mud the media has been slinging around there is a good libel suit or two to be had.
