    The worst part of the story was the first line that deliberately spins the story with the hint of scandal. This is compounded by no attempt to put the rates in context — something the Globe should know since they regularly pay much higher rates for lawyers, consultants, etc.

    As you say, $1,400 per day is far below what Manley’s regular rates are likely to be (for which $1,400 would get at most 2 hours work). It isn’t even particularly high for federal government contracts that regularly pay rates in this range.

    I try to avoid getting into media bashing (too often, people simply attack stories they disagree with), but in this case it is deserved… and worse, it is an attack through innuendo rather than having any substance.
