Kathy Dunderdale shuts down Twitter account over porn fuss - Nfld. & Labrador - CBC News

Kathy Dunderdale shuts down Twitter account over porn fuss - Nfld. & Labrador - CBC News | Emma's CanPR Project | Scoop.it
Premier Kathy Dunderdale deleted her Twitter account shortly after a report showed she was following an X-rated account.
Emma Williams's insight:

Seriously, can the CBC lean more, "fuss" they call it.  Meanwhlie they spend less time on the article about the Premier following a porn account.  Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Seriously though, these ladies are getting it all wrong.  I would not take offense to someone liking a page on facebook if I am a politician. Comes with the job.  I"d expect it more from the other side as well.
