Follow the money...

Back when I was in journalism school I had a teacher whose ongoing mantra was "follow the money" and never tired of reminding us if you wanted to get to the bottom of any story involving what government and our elected officials did, the answer would always involve someone making money.

Lots of big money making these days...

Sadly too few journalist these days do their homework because if they did the headlines would be about just how much our elected officials were getting to promote laws in favor of select interests (and I'll give you a hint they are not "OUR" interests).

So it is refreshing to see this sort of article on the farmed salmon vs wild salmon issue and how it affects folk as opposed to big business. We need more reporting like this!
