The Toronto Star has been engaged in a vendetta against Rob Ford that has manifested into an obsession.
Now they accused Toronto's mayor of taking crack cocaine based on the word of Somali drug dealers and a grainy cell phone video they want to sell for $200,000.
According to Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday, Ford has categorically denied he is in the video and that the has used crack cocaine.
We do know there are other people who look like Rob Ford. Did the Star verify in any way it was actually Rob Ford in the video before going about their usual business of trying to destroy his reputation?
It's time for the Star to put up or shut up. Either buy the video and establish you're telling the truth, or send your so-called journalists to crawl back under their collective rock.
The Star has put more than $200k worth of time and energy into trying to destroy Ford. If what they are alleging is the truth, why not pony up the dough?
What are they waiting for?
