The Incredible Fact-Checking Powers of Our National Media

They still haven't learned that punctuation matters. I don't know who writes your headlines, Shawn McCarthy, but I don't think they read your stories.

(For the geographically challenged out there, Saint John is in New Brunswick. St. John's is in Newfoundland and Labrador).

EDIT: Three days later and it's still up. Wow (and if you check the trackbacks, we have a secret admirer [Robert Day of 'Canadian Cynic']! How cute).

Surprise!

It looks like Canada has another round of honour killings:


A Montreal family has been charged in the deaths of their three teenage daughters and a 52-year-old caregiver, more than three weeks after police pulled four bodies from a car submerged near Kingston, Ont...
The girls' father, mother and brother all face four counts of first-degree murder each. The four bodies were discovered on June 30 in the Rideau Canal...
The family is originally from Afghanistan but moved to Canada after spending 15 years in Dubai. Police say the family's culture may have contributed to the deaths (Ya think? - Danté).
CTV states that the killings could be an "extreme case of domestic violence," but they've got it wrong. The fact that the father, mother and brother of these girls all took part in the killings shows that this was long planned - to kill four people by drowning them in a Nissan requires absolute premeditation.
