From Seattle writer and consultant Matt Rosenberg...: Olesker Saga No Cause For Celebration
Here, I wrote in detail about the fabulism and bias involved in Boston Globe correspondent Barbara Stewart's coverage of a controversial Canadian seal hunt.
Now for the really good news: ...
Now for the really good news: You may have heard about the stupendous blunder made by Barbara Stewart, (former) free lance writer for the Boston Globe.The Globe is owned by the New York Times, notorious for its far left view on everything.Seems that Ms. Stewart wrote a piece that appeared in the Globe.It described the seal hunt that takes place off the eastern coast of Newfoundland , in an area called "the Front".The hunt was scheduled to start April 12, Tuesday.Ms. Stewart's piece, sent to the Globe from Halifax , described the hunt in bloody detail, blood on the ice, blood in the water, etc. Hundreds of boats full of Newfi thugs, thousands of seals dying horribly ... you know the song.She described the scene as if she witnessed it herself.It was very creative and full of color.Problem was, she wasn't there, because if she had been, she would have had nothing to describe.The area was hit by high winds and an ice storm, and all boats made for whatever port they could find.The Canadian government postponed the opening of the hunt until Friday, and even then, a second storm was giving concern.
When Ms. Stewart's
lies were printed in the Boston Globe
, the Canadian government Department of Fisheries and Oceans spokesperson called the paper and informed the staff that the hunt had not opened due to the storm, and that of course, the entire piece was a lie.
