CTV and Postmedia intentionally omit law professor’s anti-Conservative background

fifemcgregor maher

If you want a perfect example of unethical reporting in the Ottawa Press Gallery check out CTV’s Robert Fife and Postmedia’s Stephen Maher’s pieces on the latest anti-Conservative antics by Amir Attaran.

Both Fife and Maher breathlessly report that Attaran has filed a complaint with the BC and Ontario law societies against lawyer Benjamin Perrin who recently worked in the PMO (see here and here).

What Fife and Maher conveniently leave out is that Attaran has a long history of anti-Conservative activism as recently as last month when he had his complaint against Attorney General Peter MacKay dismissed by the Nova Scotia law society (see here).

For additional examples of Attaran’s political war against the Conservatives and how the Media Party use him as a weapon, type his name into my blog’s search box.

Thinking I should file my own complaint against Fife and Maher.

    ****** like Attaran eventually run out of steam, it just takes a little longer in Canada due to the Trudeau Charter. It allows ******** to cause all sorts of problems, cost people money to fight them in our courts. I wouldn’t allow any student I was paying tuition for to attend any lectures given by this individual. I can’t stand the sight of him but be sure he’s a media darling.

    Isn’t this the guy who wanted the taxpayer to pay for his wife to get pregnant cause he couldn’t do it. I remember him on some talk show panel talking about it.

        So did we pay for this political activist/trouble maker to procreate via in vitro? If so, what is the justification? Do all taxpayers have an obligation to pay for such a procedure when so many people are dying on waiting lists for life saving procedures?

          Smear mongering
          The next time you hear the name Amir Attaran, don’t bother to listen

          ….. In 2007, Attaran falsely accused Canada’s soldiers in Afghanistan of war crimes and claimed the Harper government was covering up the truth. He made claims that he had seen secret documents regarding Taliban prisoners that proved Canadian officials knew of and allowed torture….

          Levant has outed Attaran before as well.

    I did a search a few years ago on The Elections Canada Contributors Data Base … for all Parties, 2007 to 2009, contributor=”Attaran”, and out pops (summarized by me):

    2007, Amir Attaran contributed $400 to the NDP
    2007, Amir Attaran contributed $400 to the LPC
    2008, Amir Attaran contributed $200 to Michael Ignatieff leadership contestant

    Should update my search for the past two years…

    Just a reminder–This is the same guy from the University of Ottawa that was a student of Iggy and who followed Iggy to Canada.

    Looking at the photos above this thread is a real hoot, sorta like a rogues gallery. Wonder if they know how silly they look when they think they’re so cool and having fun?

    is anyone as tired of this BS as I am. jeez, nothing illegal was done. there will be no criminal charges and the bloody RCMP should stop trying to be a part of the left wing media. there must be at least one intelligent person on parliament hill.

    • Jen Says:

      The RCMP seem to act as ‘private police’ to every whim the left call on them to investigate.

    • Sean M Says:

      Yes morri, I was fed up with it along time ago. I’ve never understood the hysterical media witch hunt with paying back taxpayer money, it might have been a dumb thing for Wright to do but it certainly isn’t a “scandal”… the media are simply desperate and behaving like the Liberal maggots that they are. The PPG are as diseased in the mind as the political party they work for, the Liberals… they make me sick!

    A Bobby Fife, the Walter Duranty of the parliamentary Press Gallery.

    So much to cover up, so little time to breathlessly torque a story.

    As long as CTV keeps him on the air, the faster they dig their own journalistic grave. Ever wonder why the MSM is dying off? Fife is a perfect example of the self inflicted wound infesting the fluffy heads in the PPG.

    Also,there was FOI request for the e-mails between the CBC abd Attaran . This was denied to protect academic sources or some such BS.
    Attaran works at the UofO which is run by Allan Rock,former Liberal luminary. The Afghan detainee’ crisis was a hoax. Attaran never could produce the documents or the man who suppposedly had the documents. Nonetheless,the media ran with the story for months. The inquiry which cost us millions (and included Dion) turned up zilch. This was buried.

    IMHO,the hoax is still the low point in Canadian “journalism. However,the media cover-up of Senator Kenny’s sexual exploitation of women and the Liberal party’s handling of the bullied BJ may get up there.
    Female ‘journalists’ at most media must be so proud of their ability to shut their mouths when told, while other women are opening theirs for the Liberal party when told.
    You’ve come a long way baby !!!

    I DON’T KNOW ATTARAN EXCEPT THAT HE APPEARS TO BE, AND HAS DEMONSTRATED HE IS A TROUBLE MAKER. WHAT GETS ME IN THIS BC BLUE STORY IS ROBERT FIFE WHO NEVER MISSES A PHOTO OP AND SEEMS MORE A LIBERAL/LEFT WING LAP DOG RATHER THAN AN OBJECTIVE REPORTER. AND TO THINK THAT FOR YEARS I THOUGHT FIFE WAS AN HONEST, OBJECTIVE REPORTER.NO MORE.I NOW REGARD FIFE’S REPORTING FOR CTV OVERTLY BIAS ALTHOUGH HE TRIES TO OBSCURE HIS TRUE POLITICAL NATURE. HE DEMONSTRATES CONSTANTLY HE DOES NOT WORTHY TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AS AN HONEST REPORTER. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE BACK OF HIM SOON.
