In light of Liberal leader Justin Trudeau tossing two Liberal MPs out of his caucus over allegations from NDP MPs of sexual misconduct (see here) it reminded me when NDP MP Laurin Liu accused a national TV host of being sexist in a Globe and Mail interview (see here).
So I asked Liu about it which elicited this response:
Now, unlike Trudeau I wasn’t betraying anyone’s trust as Liu herself disclosed this in a national newspaper but of course her media protectors quickly came to her defence by retweeting the smear.
This is just the list bigger journalists’ names who publicly attacked me, there were many more:
Ottawa Citizen’s Glen McGregor
National Post’s Matt Gurney
Sun News’ David Akin
Globe and Mail’s Chris Hannay
Macleans’ Paul Wells
Think about that, the first instinct these ‘journalists’ have is to circle the wagon and not only protect Liu by smearing me but also protect the TV host from being uncovered.
But all are surprised Ghomshemi got away with what he is accused of for so long, right?
