The Toronto Star, whose vendetta against Rob Ford began the day he declared his candidacy for mayor, has managed to put a spin on it that further undermines their crumbling credibility.

What they leave out is that with the poll finding 51% who believe it versus the 49% who do not, accounting for margins of error, there's effectively a split down the middle. The CTV story notes that, saying "Torontonians evenly split in their belief of Rob Ford crack allegations" while The Star tries to fudge their facts.
Worse for The Toronto Star, it means that the fact that half of Toronto does not believe the video exists, by extension, means that half the city believes Toronto Star journalists are liars.
The obsessive hysteria with which The Toronto Star has incessantly harangued Rob Ford is claiming victims. But those victims include The Star itself. Its own credibility annihilated, their efforts are backfiring.
