My eyes couldn’t have gotten much wider when I saw well-known anti-Conservative Errol Mendes being interviewed on CTV’s Election 2011 today as an expert on coalition governments. (see here)
There can be no way that the people who booked Mendes didn’t know about his tin-foil hat episode when he ran to the Toronto Star saying that the Conservative Party was digging up dirt on him and his buddy, the Afghan torture-claiming Amir Attaran (see here).
Roger Smith from CTV has done the same using Attaran multiple times as an “expert” without disclosing his bias (see here).
This is not a coincidence and can only be explained as a deliberate attempt by CTV to deceive its viewers.
