The Toronto Star has sold — for a secret amount of money — editorial access to their pages to the Tides Canada Foundation, the Canadian branch plant of the San Francisco-based, $150 million a year lobby firm that sponsors anti-oilsands, anti-pipelines and anti-tanker activists in Canada.
In yesterday’s newspaper, on page A4, the Star ran a glowing, slobbering interview with a global warming extremist, promoting his propaganda against oil and gas and industry and Stephen Harper.
I wrote an e-mail to the Star’s public editor, Kathy English. "Can you disclose how much money Tides has paid The Star in this deal?," I asked, among other things.
Kathy wrote back and said she passed my inquiry on to someone else at the newspaper. No-one has gotten back to me. I'll let you know if they do.
It’s the kind of thing that, say, if the National Post did, selling to an oil company, would be scandalous news, covered by every other reporter in the country as a crisis of media ethics.
But because it’s the left-wing Toronto Star, and global warming, no-one cares.
Frankly, I bet the editors at the Globe and Mail and the CBC are contacting the Tides Foundation right now, asking how they can get in on the action.
