If you thought CTV news anchor Kevin Newman’s complete fluff interview of Chief Theresa Spence’s spokesman Danny Metatawabin (see here) might have embarrassed him into doing a proper one with Spence today, you’d be dead-wrong:
– First the CTV lie that the interview would be an “One-on-one interview with Chief Spence”. Two Spence spokespeople sat on either side of her during the interview.
– Next was a lie from Newman when he asked Spence if she will end the protest and “return to her family”. Spence is staying at a Ottawa hotel with them (see here) and the last figure we had from her boyfriend (who is in charge of the donations coming in) was that they had spent $21,000 on hotel rooms.
– Newman then followed up with another lie: “You’re an elected politician in some ways”. Umm, which only “some ways” is that again?
And don’t get me started with his response to when Spence said: “We asked for nation to nation meeting. Why is Harper scared?” Newman: “Right”. (see video here)
Any credible interviewer would have that crushed her on the “nation to nation” BS and the “Harper is scared” meme in a heartbeat.
Media Party doing what they do best is all this was.
