Toronto Star runs column saying PM Stephen Harper is worse than terrorist group ISIS

honderich cruickshank

There’s probably no one more jaded about the Canadian media than myself but I was completely stunned that the Toronto Star ran this (see here) utterly insane column:

star burman

And the person who wrote this for the Star is not some obscure Lefty nutbar, he’s Tony Burman who used to run CBC News until becoming the head of Al Jazeera English:

burman

Burman currently teaches journalism at Ryerson University thus giving him direct access to poison the minds of many future journalist:

And to run a column stating Canada’s PM is worse than murderous, torturing rapists tells you everything you need to know about the Star. They crossed the line so far they can’t even see it from where they are.

The only question remaining is who is crazier, Burman or the editor who ran this piece of garbage?

    That is far beyond the pale, in fact it’s hate speech, this individual should be sued. This needs to be brought to the attention of the CPC and action needs to be taken pronto. The Star is equally at fault, nothing gets past the editor

    No, not an “obscure lefty nutbar” but a regular lefty nutbar as dominates the CBC.

    Has this appeared on fb yet?

    Frankly, I think the admirers of IS, ISIS et al, should not be prevented for visiting terrorist areas or strongholds. We should not obstruct their departure especially if they are likely to die shortly after arrival. Instead we should cancel their passports, strip them of citizenship, list them with Interpol as criminals and never let them set foot in Canada again. And for good measure, block them on facebook.

    Not only is this unethical, it is utterly deranged. The Media are beyond desperate to defeat the Conservatives, they’ve now reached the status of criminally insane. The Media are diseased, sickening partisans and political propagandists, they’re not even trying to pretend anymore. Disturbing.

  6. Brian Says:

    This kind of **** in the Red Star is not totally unexpected because most of their journalists are biased bigoted and sometimes out and out racist. What a garbage rag! Would any caring sane person admit they work for the T-Star?? Doubt it.

  7. Liz J Says:

    How do we get this out to the Conservative worker bees and have it dealt with in a court of law? This is beyond the lines of free speech, this is calling the PM worse than the worst murderous group in the world today, that’s beyond just offensive, it’s rooted in extreme hatred and it’s got to be litigious.

    FIRST I WOULD LIKE THE GOVERNMENT TO STOP GIVING MY TAX $$$$$ TO THE CBC, IF CTV & GLOBAL CAN DO SURVIVE ON THEIR OWN THEN THEY SHOULD DO IT ALSO.
    SECOND – IF YOU GREW UP IN A COUNTRY WHERE PEOPLE’S LIVES DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO GROUP LIKE ISIS AND THEIR FOLLOWERS AND SYMPATHIZERS , YOU WOULD THINK TWICE ABOUT YOU PUT IN THE MEDIA..I AGREE WITH ALL THE MEASURES THAT STEPHEN HARPER AND THE PC PARTY ARE DOING TO KEEP ME SAFE. IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE THEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR. GOD BLESS AND PROTECT CANADA AND ALL CANADIANS

    What can you expect from the rag called the Toronto Star. The only way to they can help defeat Harper is to scare people.
    Unfortunately The Liberals emprace Issis. So when they start killing Canadians the Star will applaud them

    Does bell media own the star?

    Some people suggested the government stop giving money to the CBC. I agree its a sore point. There is too much support of it for it to go away entirely. Besides what will politicians have to parade around with? Yes I think the alternatives are worse, like Mel Lastman with his plastic pet moose or worse Ministers walking beavers on a leash throughout the House of Commons. They have to have something to deal with since most lack the imagination to come up with anything original. Lack of originality, must be the CBC takes after its proud pappas and doting mommas.
