Dear, oh dear, oh dear

Screen cap from Saturday September 11, 5:16 p.m. ET.



Well, now.

That would be at least four days that no one's bothered to correct David Akin's paragraph confusing Joe Clark with Robert Stanfield. As even a cursory internet search reveals, it was Mr. Stanfield whose Progressive Conservatives lost the 1974 federal election to Pierre Trudeau's Liberals. Joe Clark's first federal campaign as Tory Leader was in 1979.

Yes, that would be the National Bureau Chief for Sun Media.  The point man, one would think, in ensuring the credibility of Fox Noise North's political coverage.

Yeah, well.  Who cares about facts, accuracy and history anyway?

Update: Link here. Five days.

Update: Six days. Anyone up for a pool?
