You have to admire the sheer audacity of a Press Gallery reporter who claims that there is no such thing as the anti-Conservative Media Party:
Conservatives seems to be taking its cues from Sun News Network, a TV channel with close ties to the governing party. Sun hosts repeatedly use the phrase “Media Party” and allege a conspiracy by journalists — other than their own — to attack conservative politicians and bolster the Liberal leader.
While the Harper Tories have long taken an adversarial posture toward the parliamentary press gallery, the notion that journalists are in league against the Tories has featured prominently this year in party fundraising drives. (see here)
While writing on the same day this ridiculous story about video clips of Senator Mike Duffy doing promo spots for the Conservatives:
The virtual Duffy site was rediscovered this week by the Citizen and then quickly archived by an Ottawa computer programmer Kevin O’Donnell before the party removed it this week.
O’Donnell, who is also the Green Party provincial candidate in Ottawa Centre, wrote a computer program to robotically send a long list of commonly used first names to the site and capture the video greetings the digital Duffy sent back. (see here)
And only the guy who wrote 100+ robocall stories for his newspaper can’t see the blatant hypocrisy and irony here.
