All this type of unprofessional nonsense does is fly a red flag in front of the media bull, and predictably, a story that otherwise would have ended up somewhere on the inside (not that many people really care whether the national portrait gallery is in Ottawa or Edmonton) is on the front page of the national edition of the Globe and Mail.
