To cover or not to cover the far right: experts weigh in

  To cover or not to cover the far right: experts weigh in How to address the far right is a quandary for media organizations seeking to cover issues in a neutral way. Radio-Canada is reportedly working on an internal guide for reporters to use, while the Fédération Professionnelle des Journalistes du Québec is working with the Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence (CPRLV) to prepare a seminar on covering the far right at its annual conference in November.

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard couldn't hide his frustration on Thursday about the seemingly unfavourable media coverage surrounding his cabinet shuffle.

Couillard wasn't having it as he was asked by reporters about why only one member of his previous cabinet was left off the new team announced Wednesday.

Rita de Santis was dropped from cabinet as Couillard added six new faces while tinkering with the responsibilities of nine other ministers.

He defended the choice, pushing the combination of youth and experience in the face of numerous worldwide challenges.

Quebec Liberals shaken after Monday's byelection 'slap in the face'

  Quebec Liberals shaken after Monday's byelection 'slap in the face' Bruised by their stunning byelection loss, Quebec's Liberals said Tuesday the message from voters is coming in loud and clear. Now they need to find ways to reconnect. But some shaken Quebec City MNAs have pointed to the government’s own idea of holding hearings into systemic racism in Quebec as a source of some of the discontent expressed Monday in the Louis-Hébert byelection debacle.Some Liberals now are wondering what the government has got itself into by opening up the identity issue for debate.

But the majority of the senior cabinet ministers — education, justice, health, and finance among them — all kept their posts.

Couillard lashed out at reporters asking him about the makeup of his cabinet, suggesting the media were out for blood.

"What is it you want, you folks in the media?," he said. "You're looking for a pound of flesh? A little blood on the table? Is that what you're interested in? You want human drama. Is that what excites you a bit? You want (to write) nice articles on that?"

"I prefer to talk about people's competency... If it's a demotion contest, I'm not playing this game. I'm playing at construction."

The opposition has claimed that Couillard's Liberals are worn out a year away from the provincial election next October.

The Parti Quebecois has said nothing changed with the shuffle, given that 92 per cent of the government's budget remains in the hands of the same ministers.

Far too soon to waste time predicting the next PM: Watt .
There are still two years to go until the next federal election, but last week media outlets and polling firms began releasing polls and prognosticating about who the next prime minister of Canada will be.Horse race journalism is once again the order of the day, even though the horse race is meaningless this far out from an election.Needless to say, a lot can and will change in two years — especially in politics. “Political pundit” might as well be a euphemism for fortune teller.That said, it seems that while horse race journalism may sell, it also may play a negative role in our politics for a number of reasons.
