Over the last year I have had the unfortunate experience of finding opinion pieces published in various mainstream news offerings such as The Globe and Mail – Open marriage: Who does it, how it works and why it doesn’t by Tralee Pearce and The Vancouver Province which ran a story last year in which a local resident stalked their neighbors and trespassed on their property to spy on their house thinking it was a swingers club.
Swinging is legal in Canada and what consenting adults do in private is their own business. I find these news outlets that have nothing better to write about other than topics for sensationalism as apposed to news articles are no better than a gossip magazine like the ones you see in the line up at a grocery store. If these “journalists” had any professional accreditation do you think they would write a piece so one sided and left leaning that you are left to wonder who paid them to write the garbage you just read. If Tralee Pearce truly wanted to write a story don’t you think she would have contacted some of us who advocate the lifestyle for our opinions? Exactly my point – it is just garbage writing to get readers to read instead of actually using the space to inform us of something.
Its a shame this is where the news of today is going, so much for good reporting.
