It is pretty clear that Pierre Bourque's news aggregater service has been hitting the skids lately. Biased, seldom updated, it often appears as though his racing career, though itself quite lacklustre, is taking up all of Bourque's energy.
In fact, if you look at today's headlines:
DION HUNKERS DOWN
IGGY SQUAD ENGAGES COUP ATTEMPT
Stephane's great makeover ...Weston: Trap set for Libs ...Thompson: Libs close ranks around embattled leader ...StarPhoenix: Dion's tenure as leader appears short ...Gazette: Grumblers undermining Dion ...Martin: Dion left with two bad options ...McParland: Harper press schmoozer puts boot to Opposition ...Cernetig: First, he survived Martin debacle, now Marissen will survive Dion debacle ...NatPost: Quebec meltdown ...
...it looks very much like Bourque's current technique is to visit his competition, National Newswatch, and do a simple cut-and-paste job with the links to stories posted there:
Trap set for Liberals, Dion left with two bad options, Dion's tenure as Grit leader appears short, Quebec meltdown
Of course, there are only so many headlines you can choose from each morning, and I don't know how you would prove something like this, but if I were one of the Tories funding Bourque, I would be wondering exactly what my money was buying me.
