Susan Delacourt busted editing her blog.

The Toronto Star's Susan Delacourt gets busted for editing her blog by deleting a snarky and totally wrong comment she had written. (Made even more "hilarious" by the fact that her snarky comment was criticizing others for their own lack of research.) 

FYI: There is no mention of the edit to be found anywhere on her blog. ( The new standard for the new Star politics section perhaps?)

Tyler Dellow has the scoop here.

And a tip of the hat to Steve in the comments at SDA.

This next election is going to be in the hands of social media.

Tweets will be flying, and crappy reporting will be exposed in an instant!

I hope BTs put their heads together to find a way to collect all the relevent info.
Like a latest tweet aggregate post that stays at the top of the BT blog roll, or something like that.

We will have Sun TV in the next election to expose the Liberal rot and the rotting media.

Susan didn't have anything to do with the editing-it was Don Burroughs.

Doesn't matter who edited the post..it was edited and it was not noted as such..the original info was just supposed to slither down the memory hole, never to be seen again.

I don't know who is worse, re; lying about their impoverished childhoods..Ignatief or Adrienne Clarkson.

I left a post on her blog about the deletion of the info..let's see if she posts it.

I say we send Pat Martin and David McGuinty after Susan. Put her on the hot seat and tell the edit was unprecedented, and ask her if she instructed the edit to be made, when the edit was made, and if she knows the name of the editor if it wasn't her and if this was normal practice as it's a hell of a way to run a business. Do ya think she'd hold up as well as Bev Oda?

I'm guessing that I'm not the only Blogging Tory to receive an angry e-mail from Delacourt.
