Hey, Jane Taber!


Today's 'halfway to the real story' bit from Ms. Taber's latest gossip column in the Globe and (nolonger)Empire Mail (behind the subscription wailing wall):

"On the way home (from Vimy) certain reporters were asked if they would like to have an off-the-record chat with the PM at the front of the plane. Several agreed and met with him but did not report the conversations because of the cone-of-PM-silence clause."

Which is all fine and good in a wink, wink, nudge, nudge kind of way.

But if Ms. Taber was really interested in giving us the real story she would tell us who was asked and who did NOT accept.

Because it is the latter members of the National Press Corps, the ones who refuse to trade in their integrity to ensure themselves of a continued crack at the Evils of Access, that I really want to read.
