This line from the National Post’s John Ivison is all you really need to know about the Media Party:
“it was tough to find someone to say something nasty — and I tried” (see here)
Is it really the job of a Press Gallery member to actively look for negative comments about a Conservative MP?
Keep in mind that it is Ivison who was the tennis partner of ex-Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney (see here). Guessing he never tried to find someone to say something nasty about his buddy.
Note: Photo from iPolitics above was taken at a journo pub event where Carney just happened to pop in after it became known he had vacationed at Liberal MP Scott Brison’s house (see here)
