And the winner is….Richard Cleroux..of the Why Journalism sucks butt in Canada award

Yes Free-Speechers we have a name. The author of the jealous anti -Steyn screed below is one Richard Cleroux, author and free-lance journalist, member of CAJ National Capital Freelance Panel.

As one commenter noted of Cleroux’s clueless carping:

“It is one thing to say ‘I don’t agree with what you are saying, but I will fight to defend your right to say it’ and quite another to say we will tolerate as professional journalists the most unprofessional sort of journalism just because someone wrote it.”

The first half of this (from Voltaire) should be the journalists’ motto. The second half (from the clown in question) really means “dissent will not be tolerated”, and is completely un-journalistic.

Here’s a sample of the Clerouxless one’s lefty gas-baggery, in which he flails away at Harper & BushHitler.

Update: One more reason why vast swaths of the MSM have fallen into disrepute and are no longer trustworthy.

Who wrote this? Read Steyn’s Post 1st – Intervening in the intervention

Hello all:

I would like to find out more from the CAJ executive about what we feel is at issue here, and what we plan to say before the tribunal. I am familiar with some of Steyn’s work in the past and have written about it. It was not the sort of material that I was able to defend on a professional basis. At the time I believe I referred to it as (obscenity).

It is one thing to say ‘I don’t agree with what you are saying, but I will fight to defend your right to say it’ and quite another to say we will tolerate as professional journalists the most unprofessional sort of journalism just because someone wrote it.

Now is the time to avoid the kind of disaster we brought upon ourselves in the Stevie Cameron affair.

A brief outline from the executive on what we plan to say and why would be useful to the membership.

Yours Truly

I want a name Dammmnit! And Son of a Bee if I didn’t get one;)
