Let's monitor the stupidity, too 

So Peter Kent thinks the Toronto media are biased against the Conservatives -- The Globe and Mail: Former anchorman sees anti-Tory media bias.
Well, I wonder how he could ever have gotten this impression?
It's pretty hard to write bland stories about a federal party whose leader knows so little about Ontario that he has Niagara River flowing in the wrong direction. How could anyone write a 'balanced' story about a provincial party which describes its opponent as an "evil reptilian kitten-eater from another planet"?
If journalism schools are supposed to monitor the fairness of media coverage, maybe political science departments should be monitoring the stupidity of what the media is being asked to cover.
