A way too easy news quiz

Can you guess which of these fairly important stories is NOT linked on news aggregator this morning?

A) Harper fails to win over Canadians, CPC and Libs tied in polls

B) Canadians oppose Afghanistan mission extension

C) Conservatives use access laws to hide wrongdoing

D) All of the above

The prize for guessing correctly is nothing, because it’s really way too easy. Isn’t it amazing what a few sponsorship dollars will buy these days? Money well spent. We Libs really do need to improve our fundraising.

You can, however, read all about a horde of Viking treasure.

I just had this image in my head of some communications guy in the PMO asking the Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show where he should send the press releases.

"Borque, borque, borque."

Being new to blogging/keeping an online diary since early 2006 I am wondering if anyone knows how Borque came on the scene as a Con or a Lib aggregator or both? Not just what they claimed to be but what people believed they were. Sometimes it seems to me (listening to blogger conversations) like Borque was once more Liberalish and they have changed and kinda ticked everyone. I could be totally wrong on this but I don't know the story at all. Anyways I find them tiring lately and have stopped visiting.

Ha Jason!

W@M0, Pierre was a Liberal candidate many years ago, but I believe he came on the scene as a journalist without political bias. I remember he used to write a column for the Hill Times on the Web and politics.

I still don't think he has a personal political bias today. The Cons just bought sponsorship, so he tourques things their way. If the Libs had the cash to spend I'm sure he'd have been happy to tourque things our way.

My only issue was ever when such sponsorships were hidden. Since the CPC slapped their logo on his race car it's certainly not hidden anymore. I just posted the comment yesterday because I found the absence of some major news stories that reflect poorly on Harper particularly amusingly glaring.

Thanks so much for elaborating BCer. Now I can stop wondering.
