Berton on Black

Recommended reading today is the London Free Press commentary on Conrad Black by Paul Berton, editor in chief.

Paul had us from his first three paragraphs:

"Conrad Black's one-finger salute to the gathered media on his way into a Chicago courtroom this week pretty well sums up his attitude toward the profession.

"It has always been thus.

"Despite the fact he has employed hundreds of journalists over the years, and produced in the National Post one of the most refreshing newspapers the country has ever seen, his disdain for the profession has always been evident."

One of the true ironies of the Conrad Black saga.

  1. Conrad Black's distain for the profession is rivalled only by that of Pierre Karl Peladeau.
