David Frum on Canadian Media Bias

David Frum pulls no punches ($subscription required, but you can sign up for a 6-day trial):
It's hard to figure out which bias is stronger in the Canadian press: its hatred of Stockwell Day or its enthusiasm for the late Yasser Arafat. Combine the two and you get quite an explosion -- as The Canadian Press proved with an almost heroically biased hit piece on Mr. Day last week.
Not that Stockwell Day was a very good leader of the opposition, and not that
media bias is new, but Frum's criticism of the mainline media is choice.
[Thanks to Ben and Jack for the pointer.]
