Vancouver reporter basically calls Trudeau a liar about always taking questions

harper

One of the first media issues on Day 1 of the election was about the party leaders’ taking questions from reporters after their initial speeches.

With PM Stephen Harper the focus was on the amount of questions he took which Steve Ladurantye exposes that even though the Media Party whined about the number, they repeatedly asked the same questions:

And Rebel’s Brian Lilley shows CBC’s Terry Milewski as being one of the reporters ‘asking’ his load statement dressed-up as a question which then Harper gives Milewski a public spanking:

Next up was NDP leader Thomas Mulcair who refused to take any questions from reporters and right on schedule, the Media Party blamed Harper for:

And finally after over a 3 hour delay, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau bragged to the media about always being available for questions:

But CKNW’s Shane Woodford’s wasn’t letting that statement by Trudeau slide:

Most interesting though is how not a single Ottawa journalist has said a word about a Vancouver journalist calling-out Trudeau on his blatant lie.

    Yes, our CBC employee Milewski , badly affected with HDS, was the first out of the gate and the PM got him good, he had no backup question.

    No excuses for not being available to answer questions, everyone knew the writ was going to be dropped. If Trudeau didn’t know he’s obviously not in the loop. At any rate both opposition leaders proved they are and have been campaigning all along, Harper just made it official

    As for Trudeau lying, it’s part of the Liberal DNA, his biggest fan being Ontari-owe premier Wynne, who was part of the McGuinty government famous for lying to get elected. We also can recall Chretien promising to get rid of the GST then lying again by saying he didn’t make the promise. Sheila Copps also heard him say it, she repeated it to her constituents, won, then resigned on principle and got reelected.

    People need to smarten up, ask questions and demand straight answers, running any government is serious business, it’s not about personality or looks.

    Before Liberal PM Paul Martin was to be questioned by reporter, I saw and heard a lady carrying a clipboard of sorts and asked for the reporters name company affiliated with and strict instructions to each reporter that ‘ONLY’ TWO QUESTIONS’ are allowed. I remember Susan Bonner trying her dampness best to ask PMartin about his conversation with Dingwall.
    CBC didn’t bitch about the limited of questions nor did any media reporter for that matter. Yet, PM Harper is constantly being accused of controlling the media.
    Why is the media reporters so scared of Justin and Mulcair to tolerate crap from them?
