Cox was called out on Sunday by the Globe and Mail's Bruce Dowbiggin.
I will admit that Dowbiggin
suprised me at taking a swing at a fellow journalist, especially after his
previous piece on the MSM/Blogger issue seemed almost two months out of place.
You don't have to like Bruce Dowbiggin
, nor do you have to like Damien Cox
, but in this case the former was right in his response that Cox failed to take any responsibility for his actions, plain and simple.
Funny how Bruce Dowbiggin
takes a run at me for not consulting secondary source but never bothers to call me for comment on his
When people with no respect from anyone in the biz like Dowbiggin take cheap shots, it actually makes me feel better about entire episode.
Best part is Dowbiggin
(William Houston Jr.) is loathed by Globe colleagues for inventing ridiculous rumours others then forced to chase.
