Warren Kinsella: Henry Rollins worked with Charles Manson

That headline isn’t clickbait.  It’s the truth. This revelation first came out about seven years ago, but I missed it.  In the wake of Manson’s (deserved, overdue) death, it has come out again: Henry Rollins produced an album with Charles Manson. In the punk scene, there were always some idiots around who idolized murderers.  Sid ...

Scripturient: Guillermo, monsters and me

Your Ward News, to be precise. And the Toronto Police Service, and the Crown, and the Attorney-General, HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT THAT FOUL NAZI HATE RAG. And many, many of us ARE SICK OF WAITING FOR ACTION. AND WE ARE GOING TO MAKE THIS INTO AN ELECTION ISSUE, MUNICIPALLY AND PROVINCIALLY, IF SOMETHING DOESN’T ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: when going neg goes wrong

Go neg, sure. But don’t fib. The Working Families group has a new ad out.  If you live in Ontario, you’ve likely seen it.  If you don’t, you haven’t.  But the ad is worth talking about, because of the issues it raises. Working Families describes itself as a group that was “created by members of ...

Warren Kinsella: Go neg, sure. But don’t lie.

Here’s a little snippet from next week’s column, about this ad. Because the media scrutinize attack ads like no other form of political communication – and because voters don’t want to admit they’ve been motivated by an attack – attack ads must be 100 per cent accurate.  There can’t be anything in them that is ...

Warren Kinsella: My boss on the “Paradise Papers” stuff
