Poll of news organizations

OK, this seems ridiculous: either nobody who works for CanWest reads J-Source, or if CanWest journalists do read J-Source not one of them considers their own news service tops.

That doesn’t seem believable, but see for yourself: The J-Source election poll asked, “Which major national news organization provided the best election coverage this year?” The choices were The Canadian Press, CanWest News Service, CBC, CTV, Global TV and The Globe and Mail.

As of the night of Oct. 22, with the poll one week old and still taking votes, 0 per cent of respondents had picked CanWest. Yup, that was zero.

Now that’s just sad. C’mon CanWesters. Where art thou?

UPDATE early Oct. 23: Someone has finally voted for CanWest!
