Tara Bradbury, a journalist with the St. John’s Telegram was the centre of an ugly backlash by online trolls after she wrote an article about FemFest, a local feminist conference on domestic violence and other issues. Her editor was horrified at the attacks being hurled Bradbury, and decided to fight back against the people he termed “Anonymous trolls and online arseholes” in his editorial.
Ah, Newfoundland. The only place in Canada where a newspaper editor would use the word “arseholes” in an editorial. :D
