While I’m talking about McInnes’ article, let me make one more point.  Despite the fact that he was blasting the province with both barrels for trying to dodge Translink’s real funding issues, his Canwest headline writer chose to say something very different: “Review lets Liberals dodge transit decision.”

No.  If the Liberals get to dodge the Translink finding problem it won’t be because their review let them do it.  It will be because journalists covering transit issues let them get away with the dodge.  Those journalists are smart people.  They know exactly how Shirley Bond and Colin Hansen are trying to spin the Translink issue.  Ultimately, those journalists and their editors have to choose whether or not to get spun themselves, and whether or not to pass that spin on to their readers and viewers.
