OTTAWA - A poll conducted among the that-one-unbearable-person-on-facebook demographic has shown that the Conservative party is polling above 95 per cent.

"Polls of people with any basic decency show Harper coming in a distant third," said pollster Margaret Duchamp. "But that seems to be exactly why the country’s that-one-friend-on-facebook-whose-profile-picture-is-him-shooting-a-gun-or-holding-a-fish is supporting him so strongly."

Charlie Hebdo attack targeted satire, not journalism

Photo: Brigitte Djajasasmita/flickr

I'm uneasy calling the massacre in Paris an attack on journalism. Journalism is a vast flabby entity, practised by many. The slaughter at Charlie Hebdo was aimed at satire, birthed along with journalism in the enlightenment era (Swift in England, Moliere and Voltaire in France, many others). More precisely, it was aimed at political cartooning, which the French adore. Daumier was the great precursor to the martyrs -- I think that's the right word -- this week.
