“In English author Alain de Botton’s book, The News: A User’s Manual, he talks about “gaffe journalism” – the practice of zooming in on a politician’s unfortunate misstep, and squeezing its grapy substance until you produce some fine whine (correct spelling), or usable, and controversial copy.

Carolyn Parrish is the perfect target.

She’s blunt, and doesn’t do spin. Her nearly 30 years in the political spotlight has been a funfest for newspapers, magazines and TV commentators.”
