Cruickshank, Wente and Beers discuss media’s coverage of police funeral

Last Friday’s episode of CBC’s Q with Jiam Ghomeshi featured a media panel with Toronto Star publisher John Cruickshank, Globe and Mail columnist Margaret Wente and editor David Beers, who discussed the media coverage of Sgt. Ryan Russell’s police funeral.

Cruickshank defends the Star‘s coverage, Wente thinks most coverage was over the top and Beers thinks journalists missed the bigger picture. (Jump to 33 min. for the start of the debate. We’re flattered that Ghomeshi quotes our article about the media coverage.)
