Mr. David Bowie, rock star, makes Ottawa Citizen, newspaper, eat shit sandwich

    That’s the media for you. It’s all about the headline and the race to the bottom. Never about lifting anyone up. ‘If it bleeds, it leads’.

    And will the Citizen fire whoever made up the original story? They should, since that reporter was just making things up. If they did it once, they’ve probably done it before, and will do it again.

    Ground control to Ottawa…

    Guess the fact checkers were the first to go in their plan to cut costs.

    On page 2, no less. I opened it up (yes, I still get print) and I read the headline to my wife – the lawyer. We both agreed, that’s something, right there, and some serious brand management by Mr. Bowie. Good on him for cuffing the Citizen upside the head.

    Meanwhile, The Daughter, 9, glances at the photo and asks “what happened to the red hair and lightning bolt on his face? Why does he look so old?” The Son, 6, quips, “I guess he’s not Ziggy Stardust today…”

    *so proud*…

    and Good for David Bowie, as he had already been screwed once by that record company, glad to see he can still swing. The reporter was ridcilous, perhaps an email to Bowies people would have been better before he shot his mouth/fingers off.
