Without waiting for any investigation by Election Canada, the Ottawa Citizen’s Michael Den Tandt is already calling for a Gomery-like inquiry on the robocall scandal.
“Truth is, there is no defence to the robocalls story, any more than there was to sponsorship. And anyone who says the two can’t be mentioned in the same breath is dreaming.” (see here)
Den Tandt has added his name to the growing list of journos at Postmedia who are putting what’s left of their credibility on the line and gambling their careers hoping that this is another ‘Adscam’.
Maybe they know something that hasn’t come out yet but when Den Tandt says things such as this
“Rae did not exaggerate when he called it Nixonian”
colour me unconvinced that they do.
Also: The National Post thinks quoting NDP MP Pat Martin (see here) is a sound bit of reporting as it’s not like he’s been anything but truthful right?
