I just can't believe this article

I can't believe this article/blog. Hasn't been any bully news lately so lets let reporters blog about them for hits

I don't see anywhere in the article where the woman had any issues whatsoever about the dog. As a matter of fact, she is an animal lover who has campaigned for the regulation of pet foods in Canada.

I see the views in the story as being strictly that of the reporter, James Cudmore. I have no idea why he chose to write such a ridiculous article but if he wanted to score some points with his readers he obviously missed the mark, judging from the majority of the comments to the article. I got quite a chuckle out of some of the comments and rated most of them up.

It never ceases to amaze me how ridiculous journalists can be

I don't get it? is it not a good article? is he not saying that even though the dog was built like a body builder but was really nice and was changing his mind about pitbull=trouble and book=cover? I must be missing something.

My take is that even thought the dog was extremely well behaved, the owner totally in control and Ms. Chow completely at ease with the dog, the guy who wrote the article still couldn't get over his bias against the dog, based solely on looks and preconception.

Off-topic (sorta') - I understand that it probably was a slow news day but why oh why didn't he just yakk about the weather instead????

Actually, she is one of the VERY few politicians I *trust*. She does what she says she's going to do. She is a passionate advocate for the poor and disenfranchised and absolutely loves animals. She and The Rockstar have a very special relationship. If I were an NDPer and in her riding I would campaign for her in a heartbeat.

No bad on you Shayk... how could you know? We tend to trust journalists a little too much ~ me too!

It's one of the more assinine non-news articles I've read. I mean, this WAS supposed to be about HER right?

I'm with you on that MMM, Olivia Chow and her husband are great advocates for the needy. I would vote for either one in a heartbeat.
