Two big Toronto papers got some things horribly wrong. The Sun has been censured by the National NewsMedia Council for its fictitious goat-slaughtering story, and The Sun and Star both recklessly outed a sex worker for no justifiable purpose.

CORRECTION (Dec.26/2018): On this episode, Jesse says that Sue Ann Levy was previously censured by the Newsmedia Council for incorrectly attributing the term Shaheed to the Sikh religion. In fact, it was a different SUN columnist, Candice Malcolm, who was censured for that mistake. We regret the error.
