CBC omits PR firm owner under scrutiny of Quebec govt is a federal Liberal candidate

After reading this article titled “MUHC ordered to cancel two-year contract with Montreal PR agency”:

Quebec’s Health Minister Gaétan Barrette says hiring an expensive public relations firm is no way to fix the image of the McGill University Health Centre.

Barrette spoke to CBC News Friday morning about an order he gave the MUHC earlier this week to cancel the remainder of its $600,000 contract with the Montreal PR firm Jonathan Goldbloom and Associates, or JGA. (see here)

I did a quick Google search of owner Jonathan Goldbloom and discovered a couple very interesting details that the CBC didn’t include in their story:

1) son of Victor Goldbloom who was a minister in the Robert BourassaLiberal government

2) brother of Michael Goldbloom who was the former publisher of the Toronto Star and Montreal Gazette

But the real bombshell:

3) current candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada (see here)


Tell me how a dumb guy like me can find all this out in a couple minutes yet a professional reporter working at the CBC apparently couldn’t.

    I’m betting they do know all these connections, they don’t fit with their agenda to see no evil, no wrong doing when it involves anything to do with Liberals anywhere.
    It would be called a “blooming” scandal if this were any other party.

    As for a “professional reporter working for the CBC”, that’s become a bit of an oxymoron, there’s nothing professional about not reporting on details that are pertinent on anyone entering politics. This is the sort of stuff that makes the media a dangerous meddler in the politics of the country.

    Liberals are a corrupt bunch….too bad the public can’t see that. It is painfully obvious!

    It will take a very special reporter to put a huge dent in the lefty media’s so-call reporting and no matter where the media is at- let’s say, ‘hanging around and protecting Justin like he is some wall flower, this reporter will be there asking him very serious and tough questions. This special reporter eventually will put fear in the reporters. Most likely he or she might change the cause of media history in Canada. Being a reporter is a gift; it takes hard work and commitment.
    Fortunately, there are good solid reporters out there but are overshadowed by the others. It s about time that these solid and credible reporters show their worth

    Does the CBC have a “professional” reporter? Is this even possible?

    • Jen Says:

      CBC can’t afford professionalism in their midst. Once in the dormain of CBC, you bide by their rules not ours since we are paying for it.

  6. Joe Says:

    Everyone seems to be assuming that the reporter omitted. Just as likely that the reporter was told to omit. Ich folgte bestellungen is a progressive trait.

    Libranos at it again….
