Is The Media In Love With Justin Trudeau?

Is The Media In Love With Justin Trudeau?, Since he announced his Liberal leadership bid, the press has showered adulation on Trudeau, writes one analyst. It's official: We're now in the midst of another Trudeaumania.

Since Justin Trudeau's leadership announcement on Tuesday, his mug has been on the front page of every major newspaper in the country with headlines such as "Justin Trudeau ready to step in his father's shoes", "Justin Trudeau brings famous family charisma to Richmond Hall" and "The Life of Justin Trudeau in Pictures."

The media adulation is all a little much for political analyst/consultant Gerry Nicholls.

Even before Tuesday, Nicholls was lamenting the mainstream media's "emotional" reporting of Trudeau. In one blog post he colourfully suggests that Trudeau and the media should just "get a room."
