Weinreb Exposes CTV Bias

Arthur Weinreb at Canada Free Press has a great column today titled CTV's Obsession with Puppygate. Blogging Tories in particular are going to enjoy this one.

Weinreb points out CTV's apparent inability to let sleeping dogs lie, with continual rehashes about Belinda and Peter served up in various forums including Mike Duffy Live, and the CTV website.

He also makes reference to the ridiculous CTV article about Blogging Tories having the same talking points as the CPC.

But here's the ultimate example of hypocrisy as uncovered by Weinreb:

In their zest to aid their friends the Liberals, CTV posted a couple of questionable items on their website. One was the Liberal Party's tape of Question Period when the exchange between Mackay and McGuinty supposedly took place. For those of us (probably all of us) who can't quite make out what is being said in the background as Rona Ambrose is answering a question, the Liberals very kindly flashed the words on the screen at the time that they say the comments were made. It's hard to remember another time when a political party's propaganda was so proudly displayed as news by the media.


Great catch, Arthur!

He even threw in a little dig at Dalton for me. I'm feeling better already.

I believe he is talking about Dalton's brother, David who sits in the HoC and was involved in the exchange.

As taunts in the House of Commons go, McGuinty's was excellent; if only Ontario Premier Dalton had his brother's quick wit, but I digress.

Nope... it was a dig at Dalton! And a good one too.

Ah, I thought she was talking about this:

Zac, not a problem. Even bloggers can make mistakes. I myself have made the odd one...

CTV has been especially void of content or value for most of October.
I guess without the steady spoonfeeding of a Liberal government to ease their daily efforts to bring information to the public they're getting stressed.

My question is "How many people are buying into the BS?"

Here's something. It's possible that the Ontario Fiberals will pick
up the tab for the Court Challenges
Program. I know at the very least the director will be asking the Ontario Government. And I'll just bet that some liberals on Ottawa, like David McGuinty, the Premier's brother, will be or has asked for them to be brought on board. That's
our Ontario tax bucks at work.
