The Media Party certainly didn’t like it when I posted about Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s questionable participation in the Ottawa Army Run.
First it was Postmedia’s Ismael N. Daro calling me a conspiracy theorist (see here) for daring to ask if Trudeau had properly registered even though Daro confirmed that the race’s database has no record of Trudeau.
Then the Ottawa Citizen’s Glen McGregor went full-smear to protect Trudeau and justify why no real reporter like himself would write such nutty things:
Keep in mind that McGregor is part of the Ottawa Press Gallery that has allowed the lunatic Lefty blog site rabble.ca in as a credentialed member (see here) and which is run by NDP MP Libby Davies’ wife Kim Elliott (see here).
Also, check out this tweet from McGregor in which he states Trudeau’s race finishing time was 43:44:
Just by looking at McGregor’s physical attributes, it’s a pretty safe guess he doesn’t jog himself so that’s probably why he didn’t clue-in how bad that time would be for an in-shape 41 year old male. The time McGregor quoted is closer to an average runner doing 10km. A 40 min 5km runner would finish close to last (see here) and the Liberals have said Trudeau finished the race in 28 minutes.
Missing that glaring detail puts McGregor in with us fringe bloggers or does he belong in a category all his own?
But hey, at least no one at the Citizen blogged about Harper’s Wafergate right?
