Comments as critique

Someone dubbed “Neocynic” is out to embarrass the Globe and Mail for its priorities. The commenter is repeatedly posting sarcastic comments saying that 12 staffers are covering the Toronto International Film Festival — and acerbically asking how many are covering the Afghanistan war. The comments are under unrelated news stories, like this. Oddly, none of these comments come up in a search.

Said Neocynic:  “LOL! So much for being a serious newspaper of record. The editors of Teen Fan magazine must be worried. Its good to see your priorities on display for all to laugh at.”

Neocynic has a point, imo — though the Globe has done considerable credible work on Afghanistan, and more than some.
