    I read the Toronto Sun article (link is part of blurb about Brian Burke, et al) and specifically Burke’s remarks about the media.

    Criticize Burke all you want; I’m guilty of it, too. His comments about Toronto’s media were somewhat insightful and sometimes funny. Phaneuf’s, too. Despite the criticisms both received at the hands of Toronto’s press, they both expressed great appreciation for their time in Toronto.

    The media’s job is to comfort the afflicted, and to afflict the comfortable. The funny thing is that no matter which side the media takes, they’ll always be criticized. I think that is how it should be.
