Sun News’ Brian Lilley outs Postmedia’s Glen McGregor, and Stephen Maher and Global’s Laura Stone for leaving out the reason why the Conservative Party lawyer “was directing questions and answering for one [robocall] witness”.
As it turns out:
The witness in this part of the transcript cannot talk. The witness in this part of the interview communicates with others by typing, often on their Blackberry.
I’d like to say more about this witness but there is a publication ban.
At least some of the journalists writing about this know who the witness is. They have attempted to speak to the witness and they know of the speech limitations that this witness deals with. (see here)
If Maher, McGregor or Stone knew about robocall witness’ speech limitations and didn’t report it, I can’t see how they won’t be fired
