rick bell rocks.

Rick Bell rocks today.

I tried to read it, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Unfortunately we'll just have to disagree. Rick Bell NEVER rocks.

He may come across as anti-Klein in that or various other articles, but honestly, he's a populist rag reporter, and he'll say whatever he thinks the Tim Hortons crowd wants him to say. Sometimes that means a "stand-up for the little guy" socialist rant, and sometimes that means a "hollier-than-thou" pontification from the fiscal right. There's no consistancy in any of his antagonisms.

I won't get intro the details, but once he actually misquoted ME in the Sun. What did he say, you ask? That's not nearly as relavent as the fact that he had anything to say about what I was saying. Get a life Rick Bell!

lol. you're funny, Sen. Considering his peers at the Calgary Sun include the likes of Paul Jackson, Licia Corbella, Link Byfeild, and Ezra Levant, I think he's doing quite well.

I liked the article, but the Sun chain of newspapers only ranks a little below the National Inquirer and the Examiner. Like the Edmonton Sun, the Calgary Sun is no doubt a rag.

I have to agree, especially after living in Calgary for 9 years.

Rick Bell sucks and he is a phony. He sometimes talks a good talk, but doesn't actually care about what he writes about, or the "little guy" he exploits to make a good column. He's just doing his job.

I forgot to mention that I'm probably more biased than the average Albertan ;-)
