Miro is a fine writer and this book promises to be as dryly funny, fearless and erudite as his posts at Blogwrath:
This is not just about Rob Ford – this is about exposing the ability of the media to belittle and ruin a person, any person. And I am not talking about criticism of his political views. That’s nothing – it is normal to criticize politician.
The issue is about the horrific way in which a human being is treated – hounded methodically until his personality and his family are in shambles. It takes extreme strength to withstand such pressure and on the surface it looks that Ford has managed to handle the situation. However, his political career has brought him no visible benefits after the long battles with those who hate his politics, if we don’t count the satisfaction of his constituents.
(Theoretically, he would’ve been better off working in his business, but when people with his convictions can’t hold an office, we will be served only by the professional political freeloaders.)
