The Globe and Post this morning publish competing investigations of the Prime Minister’s recent decision to change eyewear. Mind you, they were both beaten to this story by the Star, which looked into this subject more than two weeks ago.

Hopefully one or both of the national television networks will pick up and advance the story.
