Robocall super-sleuth reporter kicked out of Manning conference

Matthew Rowe of iPolitics has a very interesting bit of gossip posted about how “witnesses” report that Postmedia’s Stephen Maher was removed from the Manning Centre’s conference last night and his Watergate-like partner Glen McGregor left with him as a sign of solidarity as did CBC’s Kady O’Malley. (see here)

Update: Maher has confirmed it!

“As has been reported, I was ejected from a Manning Centre party last night. Today I’m told it was a misunderstanding. Case closed.”

Would Maher be so forgiving on a story that he was chasing? Why is this incident involving him a “case closed”?

Update: It’s now being reported that Maher was removed from a private function by an official after he “responded angrily to his approach” (see here)

    Gee – wonder what the other side of the story is? You don’t get “ejected” for no reason.

    And after the witch hunt they have been on judging and sentencing the CPC for robocalls with no evidence other than some assumptions based on the culture of playing hardball, why would they think they would be welcomed with open arms.

    Hey BC Blue it says that Kady O left with him in Solidarity

    Gee, now that was a loss. How will the conference survive?

    Oh I’m sure there is someone that knows what happened and I’m also sure that ‘case closed’ is likely very significant.

    Sadly we are all wondering why any of those 3 were there in the first place because it sure is obvious that it wouldn’t have been anything more than a ‘gotcha gate’ moment if at all possible. Is that how they want to be seen as journalists?
    I’m of the opinion that the only journalists worth respecting anymore are the ones that are transparent, willing to criticise their own as often as others, do not miss a single fact when chasing a story and most important, will chase ANY story whether it fits their ideology or not.
    None of the above fit that for me.

    Do you smell a “Pattern” here? Remember the face book girl from the election that was in the news for the whole election, that was “kicked out of the Conservative rally”…it was news for weeks. Now that robocalls are Liberals, looks like a changing of the channel attempt. more drip…drip…drip…on their “staged” scandal.

    The” biggest election fraud in Canadian history” and nothing on global tonight…first time in two weeks.
    Maher and Mcgregor and CBC all partners in crime.They thought they were clever waiting for 9 months banking on all the answering machine calls from Liberals being erased. BACKFIRED.

    Crossing paths with these boys could have created quite a stir?….hmmmm
