Many of the Postmedia newspapers have now officially lost their collective minds over the robocall scandal.
It’s bad enough to see a call for a Gomery-type inquiry from the Citizen’s Den Tandt even before any completed investigation as this is apparently the new way to do things in Ottawa.
But the National Post has quickly topped that idiocy with a column from Wayne K Spear who works ever so hard on the Nixonian comparisons culminated with the crowning of the two Postmedia journos who broke this story with the most famous of all American reporters due to their uncovering of Watergate. (see here)
For more of Spear’s lunacy, check out the link to his blog where he further pushes the Nixon/Harper angle of “spying” and “file keeping on critics” and welcoming “All the President’s Men” to his site.
Also: Honourable mention for stupidity goes to the Edmonton Journal’s Mariam Ibrahim (she is a crime writer BTW) who runs a ‘voter-suppression’ story based on this from a NDP campaign manager:
“I did have one or two accounts of folks just popping in the office and telling me that they’d got a call from someone, not a recorded call, but an actual person purporting to be from Elections Canada” (see here)
Makes you wonder if there have their been other crime stories by her based along this same “one or two” exactness?
