In Dirty Business, Tom Adams writes that “…city-bound journalists are largely unaware of the corrosive effects some wind developments are having for communities, neighbourhoods, even families.”
Turns out, it’s worse than that: the latest spate of emails internal to the McGuinty era provincial government indicate that provincial government and agency officials actually sought to manipulate the media via “friendly” voices, whose favour may or may not have been encouraged by government contracts.
Here from Tom Adams current blog posting, his story on Corrupt Electricity Reporting, pertaining to Tyler Hamilton who parlayed his apparent environmental and electricity system knowledge into an influential column at The Toronto Star. (Hamilton no longer writes for The Star.) http://www.tomadamsenergy.com/2013/08/28/corrupt-electricity-reporting/
