Mark is unimpressed with Don Martin’s journalistic abilities:
...his vision is rather limited. He's basically all attitude and little cattle...:
No wonder Canadians are confused and ill-informed about the situation in Afghanistan. ...in his column "Canadian troops far from alone" (Jan. 24)...[...] he gets quite a few basic facts wrong--all the more emarkable since he was in Afghanistan himself just half a year ago.
Couldn't agree more. In December Mr. Martin wrote up his assessments of the year’s best and worst politicians. My thought at the time was that in a similar list of journalists he would easily be among the worst.[The litany of Martin’s errors follows]
