After the stunning defeat of the corrupt Alberta PCs Tuesday night by the NDP, one of the biggest media-related stories to emerge was how they refused to investigate and report on any of the NDP candidates during the election.
Only just now are they partially exposing the rabble of Lefty students and activists:
The screen captures taken from Drever’s now-closed personal Facebook account include the 26-year-old sociology student drinking alcohol, wearing an empty box of beer on her head and posing in front of a pro-marijuana sweatshirt, as well as a photo of a hand giving the middle finger to a Canadian flag, which included a comment from Drever stating “OH JKJKJKJK LOVE CANADA!” (see here)
Imagine the Media Party firestorm if it were a Wildrose or Conservative candidate caught posting a photo giving the middle finger to our flag.
Then there was the case of the National Post’s Jen Gerson shielding a NDP candidate who wrote he was contemplating suicide because of the criticisms he was receiving:
And the answer to your question is yes, this guy is now an elected member of the Alberta government’s caucus:
If Gerson had an ounce of integrity, she would resign and if the National Post had an ounce of ethics, they would fire her.
But by far the most egregious example of how the media protected the NDP was given to me by Rob Rheaume who unearthed this photo-gem:
Yup, that’s Alberta’s new premier Rachel Notley standing behind an anti-oil fanatic. Nice huh?
And not a single Alberta journalist knew about Notley being at this event right?:
Activists with Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Keepers of the Athabasca and Occupy Edmonton have united to call on governments to address climate change.
The group held a rally at the legislature Saturday afternoon, a day they have named Occupy the Climate.
MLA for Edmonton-Strathcona Rachel Notley told those in attendance she supported their call for action. (see here)
Now tell me these ‘professional’ journalists won’t be doing the exact same thing during the upcoming federal election in order to help the NDP, Green and Liberal candidates against the Conservatives.
