Revenge of the boomer journalists

The UBC journalism school magazine does a story asking how the dominance of Baby Boomer affects Canadian journalism.

My take, based on someone else's masters students' thesis from around 1991, is that the Boomers are keeping Canada's papers from swinging to the left. Based on my anecdotal study of what the journalists who are now in their 30s usually wrote during their student press, Canada's newspapers of the future will be very politically correct.
