Toronto Star, Globe and Mail called before Ontario Press Council

Did you know the Toronto Star and Globe and Mail were called before the Ontario Press Council to defend themselves on multiple complaints regarding their "Rob Ford crack video" stories?

Me neither.  Strange how the news didn't cover... the news.

The hearings took place at Ryerson University on September 9, 2013 and questioned whether the newspapers engaged in "irresponsible, unethical investigative reporting."  The two complaints were deemed a representative sample of 41 complaints received by the Press Council over two articles published by the Star and Globe and Mail.

Here's the live blog of the arguments made during that day.
