The Star's homepage today is bemoaning the cash-grab by our jackass MPPs:

Well, guess who got screwed by whom just five days before Christmas? 85 employees of Torstar’s newspaper division, that’s who. Torstar’s largest newspaper, the Star, stuck the story way back in the business section.
This halfwit masquerading as a media critic has yet to weigh in, but don’t hold your breath. Here’s a snippy exchange from back in October, when Torstar forced out Goldbloom and Gherson. Somebody had the temerity to address Zerba the Greek without checking his testicles at the door:

I am not ''reticent.'' I am on leave. Do you work when you are on leave?
Oh, on leave. I had “mental health break” in the pool.
I would have to moderate comments and I am in no mood.
Neither I nor this blog owe you a thing, anonymous commenter.
How dare you speak to the Mikado of Riverdale! Hark, my flying monkeys: arthurdecco, sooey, Bill-Muskoka, Maz, away!
I guess the long-suffering Sharon Burnside wouldn’t have liked the more direct “fuck you, jerkface” that would be in keeping with Antonia’s, er, charm.

At least, that’s what I’m assuming happened until Her Maj deigns to explain the secret purging of comments on her site - the comments she receives, reads, considers, approves, then posts.
So. Has Zerb’s blog finally been taken out behind the woodshed and put out of my misery? If not, will the BDS-afflicted doofus ever get around to mentioning the Star’s little Christmas gift to several score employees?
