I saw Martin’s Tweet as it appeared, and reTweeted it right away. You know the one—that colourful 138-character denunciation of the Harper regime’s sixth closure motion in 33 days.

Some illiterate hacks have been calling it a “tirade.” And of course it became the story. Not the fact that Parliament has basically been rendered irrelevant and the whole notion of “responsible government” effectively abolished. That’s too much of a chunk for corporate journamalists to swallow.

Of course, IOKIYAC. And calling opposition MPs traitors? Perfectly within bounds.

The corporate media don’t merely bury the lede. They kill it first.

[H/t and h/t again]
