Here’s to a more irritating 2015

Personally, I don’t know how 2015 could possibly top 2014.

In August, online readers of the Globe and Mail voted for me as the “biggest name in broadcasting,” beating out even Peter Mansbridge.

Then in December, an Ottawa newspaper called the Hill Times surveyed parliamentary staff – the assistants to MPs and senators – asking them to name the “talking head you’d most like to silence.” I won that poll too, with more than triple the votes of the second-place contender, Rex Murphy.

And just before Christmas, the Globe’s TV critic, John Doyle, chose me as the “most irritating” personality on TV.

These three honours don’t contradict each other. In fact, in journalism, how could they not go together?

    That’s weird. Waspy’s former boss was John Doyle.
    There’s probably a lot of them floating around.

        Yes, Cat- it’s true! Life is crazy, convoluted and paradoxical too, sometimes.

    Good man. Thanks Ezra for ALL you DO!

  • Maggat

    A fine man and journalist. One must admit, reading the comments in the Sun story, he can really stir up the rabid lefties.

  • Stronger Than Dirt

    Love this man’s mind and heart.

    John Doyle is a flake

  • Dana Garcia

    Being irritating in defense of liberty is no vice.

    Go get ’em, Ezra!

  • Denis George Miller

    If you are ticking off the people you are investigation/reporting on you must be doing something right that the MSM isn’t! Congratulations.

  • Bubba Brown

    “Most irritating” Give me a break that has to go to the Trudeau spawn.
    The only thing more irrating than that is the cringing sychophants that scream his name.
    Ezra is a gift to democracy in Canada. JMO
