It looks like CTV’s Ottawa bureau chief Robert Fife is doubling-down on going after Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau instead of coming clean about falsely attributing a quote (see here) to him.
Buried at the bottom of Fife’s latest story about Brazeau is this:
The latest revelations come as Brazeau faces heat for mocking Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence at a recent fundraiser in Ottawa for a provincial Conservative candidate.
“Oh poor Theresa Spence,” Brazeau is heard saying in audio recording captured at the event and provided to CTV News by Metroland Media.
But he denies saying Spence looks “fatter” after her six-week liquids-only diet. He says that comment came from someone else in the room.
Since CTV News reported on Brazeau’s comments last week, better quality of the audio recording has emerged, but it’s still unclear who said the word. (see here)
And that folks is how the Media Party operates.
Update: It’s being reported that Brazeau has been removed from the CPC caucus and is in police custody due to a domestic accusation
Update: From APTN News
There has been no confirmation of media reports that Sen. Brazeau was arrested Thursday morning following a domestic violence call.
