honestly, now

I don’t have much to add beyond what “Hoye mentioned”:http://neon.polkaroo.net/~mhoye/blarg/archives/001736.html, but yes, “this”:http://www.canada.com/ottawa/ottawacitizen/news/story.html?id=f3d6dba0-21ac-4d23-a182-39c5fd8efe26 is pretty disturbing. I’m guessing that Canada’s position on next year’s “press freedom ranking”:http://www.rsf.fr/article.php3?id_article=8247 won’t be quite so high. Not that the Citizen’s/Southam’s “press-freedom record”:http://www.globaljournalist.org/archive/Magazine/FPhero-20023q.html is all that fantastic itself, but I guess this is worse.

    I belong to the hyphenation camp (ie press-freedom record) but I also respect the convictions of those who would omit it (ie press freedom ranking) — but you must choose!

    Actually, I prefer to hyphenate as well, but the document I was linking to has the unhyphenated version in its title, so I figured that I’d play along.

    That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
