In my 20 years or so as an editor responsible for working with this newspaper’s legal counsel, I’ve heard from a few reporters who are so angry with comments made about them, they want to sue for libel or slander.
Some reporters have been called unprofessional or sleazy and at times scurrilous stories have been made up by people angry with the media coverage when they want to get back at the reporters.More »

Today’s paper is one of those that many readers will save because it reflects a moment in the world’s history.
Even though the announcement of Nelson Mandela’s death was made in the late afternoon, much of what you read in the newspaper has been prepared for weeks, months and in some cases years.
Yes, there were news articles based on the reactions and yes articles were updated to reflect the details of his death, but the paper and the online articles are really a reflection of his life and not his death.More »

Nelson Mandela was a visionary and perhaps the first true hero of the multi-racial age. He began his life in a mud-floored hut during the final months of the First World War and wound up winning global accolades and the Nobel Peace Prize for playing a pivotal role in the emancipation of more than 30 million black and coloured South Africans – and for avoiding a bloodbath in the processMore »

Last week I asked readers to be reporters for the day and offer (up to) five questions they have for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. The questions were personal, political and some I haven’t included because they really should be directed instead to the police and the courts.
Under the personal, here are a few:More »

True role models are always fascinating and often inspire us, but rarely seek attention – that’s not the reward they seek.
We need your help in tracking them down for a special series The Globe is planning with the Canadian Positive Psychology Association to shine a light on unsung heroes who make a difference.

A week from today, assuming no appeals or setbacks, readers will be able to see almost all of the 500-page document police have pulled together in their investigation into Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
It’s worth noting that many of the key allegations have come to light so far because national and Toronto media (including The Globe and Mail) hired lawyers to argue that the search warrant documents should be public.More »

Unlike errors of fact, errors of grammar are not formally corrected on either Page 2 of the newspaper or online. But they can still be cringe-inducing for the writers. In the past few weeks, I had two readers very kindly point out to me that I was wrong in a recent column on Rob Ford. I wrote: “He noted that the investigation that lead to the drug charges ...”More »

A recent Rob Carrick column about a retired father’s financial advice to his two adult daughters struck a chord with Globe and Mail readers. The Winnipeg man's 12-point smart money manifesto contained such gems as “leave your home out of your retirement income plan,” “steer clear of debt” and “plan to be in your investments for 50 years or more.”More »

An article in Thursday’s Globe raised eyebrows about whether it was a balanced depiction of a drug treatment. The first issue was the headline, which said in print: From bedridden to Ironman, via a medical miracle. Online, the initial headline said: From bedridden to Ironman: thanks to a miracle medicine. It has since been changed to remove the word “miracle” and say: one man’s journey with spinal arthritis.More »

The Globe has been publishing a great series The Wealth Paradox, which has sparked a lot of interest from readers. The series has looked at the causes of the rise of the 1 per cent, the consequences for those who are struggling and the solutions and tools for change.
I’ve heard from a few readers and also seen a few comments from those who want to know: how do you define the middle class? If you have other questions on the series, please send them to me and I will put them to Globe writers and editors.More »

A number of you have written to me to praise, question, encourage or assail The Globe’s coverage of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. The comments ranged from readers wanting more tough questions asked, to those who think the media is harassing Mr. Ford. Others echoed Mr. Ford’s political message track that he is a little guy fighting the rich elites while a few wondered why Justin Trudeau isn’t facing the same kind of scrutiny. Let’s deal with a question first:More »
