I don’t ever like her stuff – she always needs an editor, her stuff could always be tighter, and she is always predictable in her conservative politics – but quite a few folks have brought her latest effort to my attention.
I’m biased, of course: I know all of the people in the complaint against Rob Ford, and I like them a lot. Clay is one of my lawyers and an old friend. Without getting into a lot of boring detail, I know quite a bit about the case.
That said, even if I didn’t know and like everyone involved in Magder v. Ford, I’d consider Blatchford’s use of flying quotes, her insinuations, and her swipes at Paul Magder’s wife, pretty despicable. Fern wasn’t part of the action, at all. Dragging her into this imagined Vast Left Wing Conspiracy – and her employment, and every petition she’s ever signed – is also despicable.
But like I say, not really surprising. It’s what she does.
