Hold those tough questions

Nice to see that in this turbulent world some things never change. Like Stephen Harper's personality--that ever-toxic combination of little-boy pettiness and Maximum-Leader arrogance:

Global National's anchor Kevin Newman was so tough on Stephen Harper during his interview around the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City that he was told by Harper communications staff he would never get another interview with the PM, according to a well-placed source. True to their word, Mr. Newman was shut out, denied a year-end interview with the Prime Minister that is traditional for television anchors. (The PMO did offer Global a year-end interview but it could not be with Mr. Newman, according to the source; Global said no.)

Come on, Stephen, man up--you've still got CTV, after all, when you need your daily fix of fawning and cossetting.
