Two police complaints against media for harassment in robocall scandal

The media must be so very proud of themselves harassing the wife and kids of the Conservative Guelph candidate Marty Burke:

Patricia Burke said her children have been subjected to harassment by journalists who have repeatedly visited their home to obtain comment since the robocalls story broke last month.

 She said reporters and camera crews have staked out her home, chased her 11-year-old son down the street and followed her daughter to the city bus she takes to university.

“When you can’t even let your kids out in the yard without being harassed, the line has been crossed.”

She said she has filed two police complaints over the alleged harassment and put up a “No Trespassing” sign on her door. (see here)

Sure would like to know which journos have had these complaints filed against them.

Also notice that Postmedia’s robocall super-sleuth duo of Maher and McGregor are Facebook-creeping again.

You might remember the total freak-out the Ottawa media had during the election over unfounded allegations that the Conservatives were looking through Facebook profiles to kick young people out of Harper’s rallies.

McGregor was also creeping Stephen Harper’s Facebook last November (see here).

    When you go after children, a line is crossed BIG TIME

    I agree when they go after your children they’ve crossed the line, why is the media so desperate to hang the robo calls on Conservatives? Makes you wonder if they planted a poison pill or a holy communion wafer somewhere for themselves to find?

    I hadn’t see this Guelph Tribune story dated today. Seems on election day the phone lines in Burke’s campaign office were somehow jammed with some kind of interference.

    “She told investigators that the office phone lines had not been working properly on election day, with calls that got through being hard to hear due to a continual busy signal on the line.”

    Hmmm. What was causing that busy signal in the background?
