A perfect example of how hard the Media Party are shilling for the Liberals this week is Jane Taber being sent to Montreal from her Maritimes post by the Globe and Mail in order to write hacky garbage like this:
Junior Minister Pierre Poilievre, one of Stephen Harper’s most aggressively partisan ministers, was dispatched to check out the Liberals Thursday. (There had been reports the Tories would try to disrupt the convention.) He handled his spying activities… (see here)
Of course Taber doesn’t mention that it’s commonplace for opposition parties to pay for observer status at other parties’ conventions, instead she leaves the impression that the Conservatives are being sneaky and underhanded.
