Big Shiny Takes

We're joined by Stephen Magusiak (@magusiak) of PressProgress to talk about a real banner week for Postmedia sleaze.

First, we discuss Rex Murphy's absolute dumpster fire on how racism isn't a major issue in our fake country that was built off ethnically cleansing Indigenous people, the response from some of his own National Post colleagues and the near-complete lack of accountability for Postmedia stalwarts.

Next, we chat about People's Champ Joe Warmington's incoherent column on gang violence, which was mysteriously wiped from the internet after he (even more mysteriously) made up Drake lyrics. We suspect the Toronto Sun may have received a call from Drake's lawyer.
