The Conference of Defence Organizations Institute slammed Canadian news media as superficial and dumbed-down in a recent speech at the graduating class of the Royal Military College. Not sure what this is about; MSM has been very supportive of our troops in Kandahar, and the main criticism has come from legitimate queries into policy, such as what are our war aims, are we succeeding, why are some NATO troops under fire while other of our “allies” are forbidden from action. Seems to me that the media are simply doing their job, and the Institute is looking for stenographers, not reporters.
