The Toronto Street News? I took a cab home after Sam's party on saturday and found a copy of the TSN on the seat. Until now I'd never really looked at it very closely, but Oh Em Gee, that is one trashy rag. I was drawn to the back cover which featured some lousy cartoons about American politics and the caption "Democratic Fraud As ZIONISTS attack our advertiser so that we cannot any longer subsidize their corporation here in future. Therefore their ad will not appear as they are afriad of further harassment and threats by Toronto ZIONISTS who attack the messenger rather than improve themselves and their nazi ways.?"
Throughout the newspaper their were numerous references to 'facists', 'nazis', and 'zionists, even 'masons'. Those are all such overused terms that get thrown about way to often by people who don't really know what the words mean. Was this written by disgruntled 15 year old boys on an internet message board?
I can't really tell where this newspaper fits on the political spectrum. Most of it seems left wing but then there is an article about Toronto police using excessive force in a raid on a 'responsible' gun owner and an editorial cartoon along the lines of "David Miller's gun policy only harms legal gun owners NOT the city's armed criminal elements"
Plus the other editorial cartoons are rather lame.
