Top Canadian journo quits job over political interference

Hats off to Paul Watson, formerly of the Toronto Star, now unemployed!

I had thought that the upper echelons of the journalism profession had been long cleansed of anyone principled enough to walk away from a paycheque over ethical concerns. Obviously Mr. Watson just proved me wrong.

Between the Georgia Straight article and what he hints at on his blog, he's going to have an interesting story to tell. Sounds to me like the long arm of Big Steve has been helping the editorial board at the Star make its decisions about what to print.
