Toronto Star Headline Writer Needs Canadian Geography Lesson

The headline announcing the retirement of Tory MP Myron Thompson blares out the words, "Longtime Edmonton MP Thompson leaving politics"

Only problem is that Myron Thompson represents the riding of Wild Rose in the southwestern part of Alberta - it contains Banff and borders with B.C.

File this under 'MSM Oops'

UPDATE: The headline has now been changed to say 'Calgary' - ahh the power of the blog!!!!

More proof of the lazyness and incompetence of the MSM.

Power of blogs indeed! ;-)


Nice catch media watchdog. That was pretty bad.

Thanks jenny!

The internet (and arguably blogs too) is partly to blame for this sloppy behaviour.

News has gotten so "fast" that (even) MSM is making more mistakes then before, in their challenge to be a news-break leader; being first pays (online revenue through advertising).

Nevertheless, good catch!
