Gomery Blog Wars 
Oh boy! I saw the tidbit on Norman's site this morning about the Post's summary of the 'The Gomery blog wars'. I was anxious to see if this blog made the paper and perhaps Warren's actions from months ago would finally be made available to the general public.
The ongoing Gomery inquiry into Adscam is months from completion. But it has
already produced what may be the most memorable battle in the history of the
Canadianblogosphere. What follows is a thumbnail chronology.
Any mention of Warren's attempt to use blogs to smear Justice Gomery and his daughter? Surely the implication that Ogilvy-Renault was chosen because Gomery's daughter is at the firm would be mentioned.


Norman even included the infamous e-mail in his Daily Press Review but, of course, since Warren didn't respond to that publicly - he doesn't want anyone to know about it - The National Post skipped right over it.

The guy is doing this in the background while appearing before the commission, being interviewed on CBC, writing columns for the Post, being talked about like genius by Jane Taber in the Globe and Mail, and being treated like a credible source for information or criticism.

And nobody in the media cares that he wanted bloggers to imply that Gomery chose Ogilvy-Renault for familial gain?

Maybe the new visitors coming here from domains like gc.ca or cbc.ca haven't seen the e-mails - here they are again:

Someone - other than Warren - please tell me whether or not this is relevant? I mean - I feel like this horse has been lying on the ground for some time and I'm still beating it.
