The Media Party are mad.
They are mad that a young, female, Muslim, Liberal candidate who Justin Trudeau had set-up as political fodder to attack a Conservative cabinet minister was exposed by us citizen journalists and was forced to resign over her vicious Twitter activity (see earlier blog post here) and are now going on the offensive:
Stephen Jenuth, the riding association’s president, says those comments don’t represent who she is today.
“When you discuss her thoughts today, what she thinks of multiculturalism, what she thinks of other religions, people who have differences in points of view, everything appeared to the Liberal Party to be quite appropriate,” he said.
Jenuth believes the party vetted her sufficiently but admits they failed to search candidates’ online histories as deeply as they should have.
Among the tweets, Buzreba tells someone to “go blow your brains out,” and tells another that they should have been aborted — but in more graphic terms.
You’ll notice whoever wrote this (CBC omitted the reporter’s byline) refused to quote the exact tweet which was this:
The reporter omitted it knowing people would be far less sympathetic if they knew what she had actually said.
This same reporter also calls Buzreba a “kid” even though she was 17 at the time:
CBC then runs a Facebook post from Buzreba’s sister who blamed the tweets on some sort of conservative conspiracy network:
No proof included and which the person this “coat hanger abortion” comment was directed at, contradicts:
And especially since Buzreba’s sister is a journalist:
You would think she would have been asked for proof of her accusations prior to running it but as this tweet from CBC’s Kate Adach shows, facts aren’t important to the CBC when it comes to pushing a slant:
And if you think it’s just the CBC who are trying this tactic, check out this tweet from Edmonton Journal’s Paula Simons:
Simons is part of the Alberta Media Party who actively covered-up the NDP extremists and nutbars during the last provincial election (see earlier post here) and are now trying to do the same for this federal one.
Before social media, Conservative supporters had no way of fighting back against biased reporting and the Media Party hate that, and us for doing it.
Update: Foul mouths run in the family:
Just don’t expect the CBC to update their story
