TV news people a different breed from their newspaper cousins: Mark Bonokoski

The Sun's Mark Bonokoski piggybacks on the recent Margaret Wente column that called for no journalists in the Senate and says print people are OK.

"Senators who came from the trenches of newsprint, for example, have not only proven themselves worthy, but many of them have been policy groundbreakers, great defenders of ethical comportment, and therefore should be put outside of Wente’s generalization until proof to the contrary becomes known," he writes.

The whole column

(It's not always good to generalize. Ex-CTV TV guy Jim Munson is in the Senate and has not been tainted with any scandal. His appointment was a reward for keeping Jean Chretien in the Press Gallery's good books.)
