It made all the papers when a week ago Anonymous promised to drop a bombshell on Vic Toews. The media even covered Thursday's Anonymous video claiming the Day of Reckoning was nigh.
But when Friday rolled around and Anonymous released another video claiming Toews had shady dealings with a female judge in his home province of Manitoba, even got her appointed to the high court, the MSM went suddenly mute.
So, what gives? A few possibilities come to mind. As Anonymous stated early on this has been the stuff of rumours for some time. If so, it's conceivable that our journos looked into this long ago and found it was hogwash. But, then, why didn't they come out and tell us that and expose Anonymous as a bunch of unreliable gossips?
I suppose it's conceivable this was a revelation to them and sent them scurrying to check it out before letting it slip their lips and risking the wrath of the Harpies.
Or maybe what passes for journalism in Canada today is just too easily cowed to deal with something as potentially volatile as this.
I don't know. What do you think? Has anyone heard anything?
