Kudos to the National Post for Covering the Ezra Levant Trial

Good on Christie Blatchford and the Post for being there. 

The rest of the gutless Canadian media should really be ashamed of themselves for not covering a trial that has such direct implications on their work and for freedom of speech in general in Canada.

Really-shame on the mainstream media in Canada.

There is a disgraceful omerta on this case, with the exception of one Canadian Press article a few days ago, and a couple of pieces by Joseph Brean from the Post as well.

Mainstream journalists may hate Ezra Levant, but it is astonishing that they cannot or will not see that they have a lot of skin in the game when it comes to this trial.

The stakes are really big, I guess their parochial,  and eternal Laurentian snootiness prevents them from looking at it with any objectivity whatsoever. 

Bit of a round up here from Mark Steyn. 

More summaries here. 

More on this later.
