Postmedia let down readers by dictating election endorsements: Honderich

John Honderich writes:
"Never before in a federal election, in my memory, have newspaper endorsements become so controversial.
"Topping the list unquestionably was Postmedia CEO Paul Godfrey’s dramatic order to all 16 major Postmedia papers across Canada to support Stephen Harper.
"Each paper was allowed to write its own editorial, but the conclusion was preordained.
“'Since God made babies, I think (endorsement editorials) were always made that way,' longtime Conservative Godfrey explained later, reacting to the uproar. 'If anyone thinks otherwise, I think they were dreaming in Technicolor.'”
