Manitoba Newspapers Reject Accountability

 The Manitoba Press Council has ceased operating after the last few participating newspapers withdrew their financial support.


...Bob Cox, publisher of the Free Press, said that today’s social media environment lends to different avenues for the public to complain about news media...

If the papers lie, just bitch about it on twitter, in other words.

That's so stupid. In the 10 years I have lived in Winnipeg, I've seen the Free Press become increasingly irrelevant. They might as well twitter their news coverage since it's that light and trite.
