Cornwall Ontario – A loyal CFN viewer sent in a screen cap early in the morning upset and questioning whether it was racist to single out someone because of their ethnicity in reporting?
They were upset at the wording and singling out of one driver as Chinese. Not sure how media blogger Bill Kingston of Cornwall Newswatch would have that info as the police blotters supplied by law enforcement usually don’t ID speeders by name or nationality?
Maybe it simply might be weak journalism or grasp of language? Maybe it could have been worded as “Driver from China?” Or simply have published their name if it was available?
The OPP usually release a group of speeders in one shot with how fast they were going.
Of course there are some cliches about Asian drivers that have been grist for comedians for ages.
Either way the click bait headline does seem a bit odd?
