Seeing Linden MacIntyre narrating the (classic) Snow. In. Toronto. video (posted earlier by Mistletoe Pants) made me think of his wife โ€” Carol Off โ€” and her extraordinary interview with Conrad Black on Wednesday evening, wherein she gradually and painstakingly made mincemeat of him for (a) his Rob Ford sit-down chat earlier this week and its pitifully softball nature; and (b) his having allowed Rob Ford to suggest that a certain Toronto Star reporter is a pedophile.

The interview is riveting listening and reading the transcript is also a masterclass in how journalism ought to be conducted. Carol Off's questions alone are astonishingly well-crafted, almost deviously so.โ€ฆ
