Same story from yesterday about Harper desperately trying to paint a "rosy picture". But the Star decides to describe him as "embattled" in the first paragraph.
I think it's great that the media tells us how we are to interpret facts in a story, rather than just telling us the facts. For one thing, I'm not smart enough to figure these things out myself, and so there's always the danger that I might interpret Canada being among the economically best placed countries in the world, as somewhat positive. I never would have realized that this was just unnecessary "rosy[ness]" - thank goodness for my media keepers helping me how to think in the correct way.
But the best part is I don't have to wade into any opinion pieces while I read the news. They're now one and the same. A one stop shop!
