#151 You’d Think A Serial Killer Would Be A Bigger Deal
"The amount of silence on this was bizarre."
Abby Madan
Jesse Brown
Host & Publisher

In which we discuss the media’s bizarre long-term silence on the disappearances from Toronto’s gay village, the Rogers-Vice Canada fallout, and Toronto Star’s problematic reporting on the Sherman deaths. With Justin Ling.

CORRECTION: On this episode Jesse incorrectly states that Canadian Lawyer Magazine ran a reputation-laundering profile of Michael Bryant. The profile actually ran in Precedent Magazine. We regret the error.
