It is National Hug a Newsperson Day today

April 4th is National Hug a Newsperson Day (formerly National Hug a Newsman Day).  Each year this day gives everyone the opportunity to say “thank you” and hug their local newsperson.The Merriam-Webster dictionary tells us that the word “newsman” dates back to 1596. They have been working hard for many years to bring us the news from around the world.

Here is the link to the  hug a newsperson website...

My question is... which newsperson would you hug and why?



Only real answers and not "fake" answers...

For me it would have been Peter Mansbridge...more out of respect for his work through the years...

  


The world would be so good if it weren't for some people...

I'd hug Dana Levenson, but I'm afraid she might break my ribs with her rippling 'Pythons'.

One doesn't have to agree with what a columnist writes, to find it thought-provoking.

My favourite radio segment of the week is when Conrad Black joins John Oakley to chat about the latest headlines on Fridays.  Intelligent, measured, and honest radio.  Great stuff, if you haven't heard it.

I'd hug John Kato.  No one covers bus cancellations  better than he.

P. Howell reviewed the movie "Shazam!" for yesterday's Star.   Generally positive.    Three stars.
       
J. Semley reviewed "Shazam!" for yesterday's GlobenMail.    Not-so-positive.    One + a half stars.

Which supports reading all three (four if you include the Sun) Toronto newspapers, for balanced news.
