One of the greatest examples of how far the Media Party will go to protect the Liberal Party is the case of Jaspal Atwal (see here and here) which is what made me confront Ottawa Citizen reporter Ian MacLeod when he omitted naming Atwal in his story about the Trudeau break-in:
“He’s very high-profile right now, doing well in the polls. Who knows, some kook may have been motivated by something he or she has seen on the news,” said Ujjal Dosanjh, the former premier of British Columbia and federal minister.
Dosanjh’s office was firebombed in 1999 while he was serving as a member of British Columbia’s legislative assembly. In 1985, a man beat him with a lead pipe for speaking out, as a private citizen, against Sikh extremism. (see here)
But I certainly wasn’t expecting this response from MacLeod:
This is MacLeod’s bio from his Twitter account “Ottawa Citizen reporter covering national security, terrorism, surveillance & privacy, nuclear, aviation safety.” – think about that.
