Canadian Press’ Jennifer Ditchburn was competing with the National Post’s Andrew Coyne (see earlier post here) to see who could look the least professional and win the ‘Harper-Hater of the Weekend Award’ with this tweet responding to John Baird’s communication director Rick Roth calling the Media Party a bunch of whiners:

How anyone could keep their job as a supposed neutral, unbiased reporter after stating that just shows how the CP doesn’t care about appearing to be fair and balanced.
The veil is gone.
