On compilations

While the Star's list of Con lies and flip-flops is worth a look, its lack of clear criteria or sourcing also helps to highlight one of the areas where traditional media hasn't caught up to the type of work being done by citizen media.

Not that a media outlet couldn't keep close track if it chose to dedicate sufficient resources to doing so - with the blogosphere likely serving as one of the more important sources. But for now, anyone wanting a remotely thorough list of Harper's misdeeds in government is far better off going here than to any major media site. And the Star's brief equivalent only highlights just how far the mainstream has to go in order to catch up.
