The Globe rethinks its creative license

Well, the Globe has been caught in their lie about what Euromoney said and what Euomoney didn’t say about Flaherty’s conduct of the past, and this time are actually doing something about. See below. Apparently the first thing that the Globe “infers” from Flaherty’s “unpopular” income trust tax is that it is “courageous”. That would be at the very bottom of my list. What about “reckless”, “deceitful”, "dishonourable", self destructive” etc etc.?

Meanwhile what gives the Globe the right to infer anything about what Euromoney said and then attribute it to Euromoney as if it was Euromoney's thought in the first place as opposed to the Globe's?

Sheesh, I don't think the Globe gets it, even now?

In naming Jim Flaherty the winner of their prize, Euromoney says his decision was unpopular; from which courageous could be inferred. However, because they did not use that word, we will clarify or correct the record.

They went from "unpopular" to "courageous" eh.

A person who does things that people do not like has made an unpopular decision---not popular; not liked or approved of by the public or by the majority.

Courageous is characterized by being valiant as in courageous soldier.

They obviously wanted to use a term that leaves a "popular" impression in people`s minds.

Way to go Globe , again making a stretch to try & self-serve on a past set of articles.

Nasty stuff.

Gee I wonder if "Creative License" could possibly be the reason why the Globe just happens to be going for a Merry Little Romp on bankruptcy trail. Looks good on them, sorry to hear about the little whiners loosing their jobs and their pensions, NOT.

It is pretty good – to goose up the terms used by euromoney – laziness also
Wait and see the correction Before saying that it has been completed
