CBC says black man was targeted, RCMP deny race was ever mentioned

yard

A story of racial profiling by the RCMP spread by the media reeked of falsehoods right from the start but the one ran by the CBC looks like an outright lie.

In her story, CBC’s Bridget Yard used this quote as proof of the claim by Louizandre Dauphin that he was pulled over by the police only because he was black:

A Bathurst man says he was pulled over and questioned by RCMP while driving home from Stonehaven wharf, and was told it was because police received several calls regarding a “suspicious black man” in a white car parked at the wharf. (see here)

No where does Yard mention who the quote was attributed and in another story run by the Canadian Press, the RCMP are calling the idea of Dauphin being profiled untrue and says race was never mentioned:

The RCMP offered a slightly differing version of events Monday. Const. Derek Black said they received a call about a suspicious vehicle on the wharf last Thursday and there was no mention of the occupant’s ethnicity or race. He says an officer stopped the vehicle and deemed the report to be unfounded.

And Dauphin himself even admits race was never brought up:

The Ontario native said race was never mentioned in the exchange with the officer. (see here)

So, where did Yard get this quote from?

I’ve repeatedly asked her on Twitter and will update if she responds.

 

CBC caught lying about Harper and Canada Revenue Agency

beeby

Dean Beeby was hired away from the Canadian Press by the CBC and his seemingly singular job at the CBC was to dig up documents through access to information requests that could be spun to make the Conservative government look bad which he has continued even though the Liberals are now in power.

Case in point is this latest hit-piece:

beeby cbc 1

Which contains the lie that then PM Stephen Harper personally directed the CRA to go after the Canadian Unitarian Council:

beeby cbc

After his lie was pointed out on Twitter, Beeby quietly changed his story:

Yet no footnotes are included explaining the corrections and how Beeby was wrong to have written what he did (see here).

You’ll also notice that the CBC added the lie in the new headline, of course.

Also: See earlier post (here) where I catch Beeby being fed info from the CBC to attack Harper when he still worked at CP.

CBC News host calls British politician Boris Johnson a “liar”

harry-forestell

After the Brexit vote came out in favour of Britain leaving the EU, the Media Party was furious which explains why CBC’s Harry Forestell thought it was ok to call one of the Leave’s top figureheads a “liar” on Twitter:

forestell

It might explain why Forestell had this outburst but it doesn’t excuse his behaviour as he actually broke the CBC’s own journalistic standards, for example:

Policy 2.2.21 Code of Conduct

Respect for People

Treating all people with respect, dignity and fairness is fundamental

Excellence

Respect for Democracy 1.3 Providing decision makers of CBC/Radio-Canada with the information, analysis and advice they need, always striving to be open, candid and impartial. (see here)

Now, what are the odds of Forestell being disciplined by the CBC?

Ex-Governor General Adrienne Clarkson lies about Harper’s immigration in partisan Liberal tweet

clarkson johnston

Adrienne Clarkson completely embarrassed herself and the office of the Governor General of Canada with this tweet sent out on Canada Day:

clarkson

It’s not only outrageous for anyone who held the title of Governor General to insert themselves in politics but to blatantly lie about immigration policies under the previous Conservative government and infer Harper was racist and misogynistic should have elicited an official response from the current CPC leadership and condemnation from the media.

Instead, we heard crickets from both.

Personal relationships between Media Party members and top Liberal insider exposed

robinson anderson

In a column meaning to eulogise Paul Martin’s top organiser Mike Robinson, Susan Delacourt proudly exposes more of the unethical relationships between Liberal insiders and the Media Party.

First this:

On election night last year, Mike and I were part of a large roster of panelists assembled to do commentary on Global TV’s set in Toronto. Mike was happy for the chance to spend election night with this huge gang, pulled together by one of his oldest friends, Global’s chief political correspondent, Tom Clark.

And then this:

A couple of months ago, as the weather treated us to an unseasonably summer-like Friday afternoon here in Ottawa, I decided to convene a gathering at our place on the back deck; drinks, barbecue, casual dinner. Mike, who had just moved to the neighbourhood over the past year, popped by on his way home from work. (see here)

Delacourt is so entrenched with the Liberals she has no idea how blatantly unethical both she and Clark were as it’s obvious they didn’t recuse themselves from reporting on stories that Robinson was connected to.

Ottawa once again showing us what a dirty, dirty place it really is.
