Of course Macleans’ Paul Wells compares Star reporter suing Ford to Harper

paul wells pigtails

Of a six paragraph column (apparently) on Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale suing Rob Ford, Macleans’ Paul Wells devoted the first three paragraphs comparing this legal action to PM Stephen Harper’s 2008 lawsuit against the Liberal leader Stephane Dion (see here).

Besides the flimsy reason offered that people were “tut-tutting” both civil suits, you really have to wonder what Harper has to do with Ford, so I asked:

And beyond being thin-skinned and lashing out at those who dare challenge him, it’s also very worthy to note how Wells replied to a comment left below his column:

According to Wells, the Star keeping Dale covering City Hall is “a judgment call” – not unethical journalism.

I can only guess when book sales are lagging, an author does whatever they can to sell another six copies or so?

    Well Dean, I think it is time to post that picture of Wells making cutsie faces with Trudeau again. One picture is all it takes to say it all.

    Of COURSE he is comparing the situation with Ford to Harper. Once a Liberal media hack, always a Liberal media hack.

    Shilling for the Liberals given the state they’re in and with a part time drama teacher with a famous moniker for a leader isn’t exactly the work of a smart person. It’s irresponsible for anyone to be pushing the Shiny Pony, he’s not anywhere near prepared for the job of PM. The country would be a laughing stock with Trudeau at the helm. Anyone who cares about their country would know he isn’t ready for the job of Liberal leader let alone leader of the country.

    Wells is acting like self important little prig, let him enjoy himself backing losers, he doesn’t know any better.

    Two things, one is not like the other, why these two lawsuits are compared is a puzzle to me also.
    It would appear to a fair minded person that it is a puzzle to Mr Wells also, hence his non answer.
    Besides with adscam hitting the fan must suck to be a Liberal.

    Poor Wells… desperate times calls for desperate measures from the Media Party…Wells has a bad case of Liberal arrogance disease, and of course where theres Liberal arrogance, Liberal ignorance is not far behind. Wells should stick to hanging out with his Liberal cronies and doing bong hits with his hero, little Justy rather than pretending to be a “journalist”… he’s not fooling anyone but himself. Liberal media hacks are not only dis-honest and viciously dim to their core, their clearly delusional as well. What a nasty, self important little man.

    The only time Wells ever had anything bad to say about a liberal was when Martin pushed out Wells BFF Jean’y C, and allowed an investigation into the sponsership scandal. Wells hated Martin. In Paul Wells journalism world, finding out the truth of a major misuse of taxpayer $ is definitely guilty party dependant
