CP uses Arab Fed’s Mouamma who called Jason Kenney “professional whore” as story source

The Canadian Press is really trying to extend this faux-scandal of a campaign volunteer who sent out an ethnic costume email as long as possible.

Besides this not even being close to news-worthy to begin with, the CP trot out (see here) Khaled Mouammar of the Canadian Arab Federation but don’t bother to mention that this guy may be just slightly anti-Conservative in his bias.

Check out this story here from the National Post on Mouammar’s terrorist group sympathizing, calling Jason Kenney a “professional whore”, being a Liberal appointee to Immigration Board and calling Israel a “genocidal regime”.

Strange how none of that made it into the CP story for context huh?

    Speaking of whores, it seems that the Canadian Press is the biggest whore here. What more can one say?

    The story was on THE NATIONAL and on CTV PP they had two “ETHNIC” canadians asking them if this would change their mind on who they vote for? The first 20 minutes on CBC tonight was dirt against the Conservatives. PM Harper told reporters today the story was BAZARE and he’s right. Much ado about nothing and they had another BS story on CBC about Helena Guergis being kicked out. Greg Weston is busy digging, digging, digging,digging.The media are NUTS.

      Keep on digging, the devil awaits.
      Immigrants have seen hell to come back to reality to NOT fall into that trap again.
      The sulphure reeks among reporters that have fallen.
      The liberals, ndp and the bloc are making use of these reporters.

    Why do politicians react to a story told to them through the filter of media reading a media account of an event written by a media person? I know, that’s not clear … let me try to break it down.

    • A story is written about someone requesting people come to a rally dressed in their “national folklore costumes.”
    • Roger Smith asks Ignatieff to react to the story about people requested to attend a rally in their “ethnic costume.”
    • Ignatieff is shocked and appalled. “This is not Disneyland!” he cries.
    • The PM is also asked to react, and he says it’s bizarre.
    • The volunteer who sent the “offending” email is sacked.
    • The volunteer’s name appears to be “ethnic.” He used the word “costume” probably because English is his second or maybe even his third language. Maybe he should have chosen one of these less offensive words: “apparel, attire, clothing, dress, duds, ensemble, fashion, garb, getup, guise, livery, mode, outfit, rig, robes, style, suit, uniform, wardrobe” [thesaurus.com]
    Or maybe not. Some of those words may also have been found “offensive.”

    Some questions come to mind:
    • All parties claim to accept and welcome newcomers to this country. So please explain to me: what is so offensive about asking people to show up in their “national folklore costumes”?
    • Many journalists, I’m sorry to say, are quasi-illiterate, given the number of times they misrepresent what is said by politicians. So why do politicians trust journalists’ interpretations of what an opponent says?
    • Why do politicians react to something they themselves have not heard, something told to them second-hand by a journalist?
    • When are journalists going to ask questions on policy rather than nit-pick about what some underling said or did in another party?
    • When are journalists going to behave like journalists instead of tattlers?

    Monday we will have Sun News TV to try and balance out the absolute corrupt reportage that we’re being subjected to.
