Today's most lame-ass piece of journalism
The Toronto Star, beaten by the Sun and the Quebec press on the Homolka baby story, turns to dial-a-quote lawyer Tim Danson and Liberal provincial attorney general Michael Bryant. They raise the complete non-issue of Homolka returning to Ontario, something she apparently says she doesn't want to do. I believe her on this, since in Montreal, unlike in Ontario, she can live anonymously. Next, the Star team scalps a Quebec tabloid story for the actual details of the Homolka baby story, lards the mess up with some background, and slaps three bylines on the story.
