Ontario Press Council hearings: Live Blog

The Ontario Press Council will hold two separate hearings on Mon. Sep. 9 to investigate complaints that the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail reported on the Ford family in an irresponsible, unethical manner. The Globe and Mail will defend its use of anonymous sources for an investigative piece by Greg McArthur and Shannon Kari that looked into Mayor Rob Ford’s family's alleged drug dealings. The Star has been called to respond to complaints about an article the newspaper ran about a video that allegedly showed Ford smoking crack. That article was written by city hall reporter Robyn Doolittle and investigative reporter Kevin Donovan. Tamara Baluja, the associate editor of J-Source, The Canadian Journalism Project, will be live blogging starting at 10 a.m. on Mon. Sep. 9.
