Globe and Shitemail #nlpoli

"Orange wave credited with slimming Tory majority", the headline on the Globe story proclaims.  The lede is just as bad

An "orange wave" is being credited with toppling a cabinet minister in St. John's, as the impact of the NDP's federal breakthrough continues to ripple across the country.

We never do find out who is doing the crediting throughout Oliver Moore's  thin account of recent political events. Perhaps it was someone at the bar.  Safari journalists are evidently no better at avoiding superficial observations than the locals who were pushing the race for second place theme.
