CJN Article: Caterer Makes False Kosher Claims

It sure doesn’t read like it, but this could well be the toughest article I’ve ever written.

I am SO not an investigative journalist.

It is SO much easier to write a feature or opinion article than an actual piece of news reporting.

It amazes me that some people turn out dozens of these types of stories a week.  Okay, actually I have no clue of the pace at which a professional reporter works.

But this – the emails and phone calls from editors, fact checkers, copy editors – sure makes me grateful to mostly work at my own pokey pace from home.

In case you’re interested,

  • Here’s the original Toronto Star article about this caterer.
  • And this is a follow-up article from The Star.
