A hilarious piece in the Washington Post covers the Rob Ford scandal (the mayor of Toronto has finally admitted what everyone knew, that he was an abuser of crack cocaine). It is covered in the style of foreign affairs pieces on distant, you know, third world countries. A fantastic way of showing everyday journalism in a new light.
TORONTO – A powerful Canadian official has become entrenched in scandal after admitting to using crack cocaine, a taboo in this socially conservative society. In a country where dissent is limited by traditional mores, the transgression has sparked rare public outrage and raised concerns about the stability of the Canadian regime.
