McGuinty handler threatens CHCH News

This warrants a separate post - H/T from an anonymous source in the previous thread.

Check it out.

CH news
is being threatened to stop reporting the story!!!!

Free speech and media access now being threatened in Ontario!

Now this is the story!


Watch it quick before McGuinty's handlers have it pulled.


* * * *
Update: This is a fast-moving story - Caledonia Wake-up Call is all over it. (Might want to check the spelling on the title though, Gary).


Be afraid, Ontario. Be very afraid.

Awesome - Kate's picked this up. See McGuinty run. Her traffic will really held get this story out there.

National Newswatch has picked this up!!!

Your welcome.

BTW CHCH provides the code for anyone looking to save this one.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Anon, I'm somewhat challenged technically. Exactly where is the code? Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Under the video. There are buttons that allow you to link, email, embed,etc....

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Right. Thanks.

It will be interesting to see if any other media source picks up on this. They all have reason to be concerned.

Barbara said...

Where's Warren on this?? Usually he has so much to say about everything. I really can't wait to see how he tries to spin this one. This whole situation is disgusting. How anybody could support McGuinty is beyond me.

I wonder what Mike Duffy thinks?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

I wonder what the Ontario voter will think if this gets out.

Isn't Ben Chin a former CBC employee?

Anonymous said...

Ben Chin is a former anchor. And failed Liberal candidate. And has been spending the campaign trying to take John Tory out by going negative with his fake online news report on ToryTube. Wouldn't it be fun if the tables were turned and the net took him out?

I wish I was more computer-savvy.

BTW, Dalton will be on the Jeff Allan show momentarily.

No dice. Was on hold waiting to ask my question. Looks like the Premier isn't taking questions.

Was on hold waiting to ask my question.

Good for you for trying. Jeff did address this issue. I will provide a synopsis shortly.

Christian Conservative has picked up on it.

When will the rest of the MSM come to CHCH's defence?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Thanks, Anon.

CH news has just reported another occupation has started near the Caledonia one.

I'm trying to get more info.

Anonymous said...

Proves just one thing to me and that is what someone else on another blog said.

The monster in this election it's McGuinty, the angry man, and his thugs, who'll stop at nothing from hiding the truth.

I find it VERY interesting that the whole Caledonia issue has been brushed under the rug by the Liberals, because it was handled badly, and caused taxpayers millions.

This issue is far from over and with McGuinty in charge nothing will change.

I'm switching my vote to Tory.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

I'm switching my vote to Tory.

Right. This will be the tipping point right here. Things are getting worse in Caledonia as we speak.

Keep an eye on Caledonia Wakeup call. Links are coming.

Anonymous said...

Clearly Kinsella's going to try his best to stop the public from looking behind Caledonia DOOR #3, and certainly not on the bully tactics used against CHCH.

Mean, angry, white Liberals vs. tolerant, measured, and fair Conservatives.

NO choice to be made there when it comes to the kind of leader I want running the province.

Hey, did anyone catch the clip of McGuinty saying he had trouble doing his kid's Grade 12 math homework? This must explain his financial challenge running our province's account.

Anonymous said...

Just got word from Brantford.

The MSM, Party HQ are all over this.

Here it comes. Well done Joanne.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Awesome. The power of the internet.

Anonymous said...

The CHCH video you've linked has changed.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Anon, thanks. This is the one for the story about CH being threatened. It's at the end of the clip.

Still trying to find more info about the new occupation.

Anonymous said...

A Step To The Right has the story. And a h/t for you CC and SDA.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Oh good. 'Step to the Right' has the video embedded - Obviously a lot more savvy technically than I am.

tori said...

shit!

I missed all of this when it happened?!?!?!

Joanne (True Blue) said...

lol! You've got to check in on my blog several times a day. ;)

Joanne (True Blue) said...

National Newswatch just picked up the Ben Chin story.

SouthernOntarioan said...

Hmm.. where are all those Liberals who were complaining about the Tories' hard-handed media practices?

I'm sure threatening to block reporters if they write critical news items about the government is much worse than simply ignoring all journalists.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

S.O. - Exactly. It makes you wonder how many other news outlets have been threatened in a similar manner?

liberal supporter said...

None of the links work.

Sounds like McGuinty has goons out carrying rocks threatening to throw them at CHCH studios.

What is the actual story?

tori said...

SO,

I thought the exact same thing!

Joanne (True Blue) said...

None of the links work?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

The link at the very top of this post works for me.

tori said...

CHCH has an option to post the video on your facebook profile...spread the word!!!!

tori said...

i just posted it in the comments section of the G&M...and it got thru :)

PGP said...

Congratulations to Mike Quattrociocchi!
And to CHCH .....!

I suppose it was inevitable that McSlimey's behaviour and that of his clique would blow back in their faces some time.
Now let's see how CBC/CTV and the rest handle the story!

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Good work, Tori!!

Someone at Christian Conservative's site said this is McGuinty's 'Beer & Popcorn' moment. lol!

Great work Joanne, I've plugged this post for ya

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Thanks, Matt. Please let me know if you hear anything else.

liberal supporter said...

Just sits there with a blank screen saying "Transferring" on tyhe statrus bar. Back button doesn't go back, just starts the "transferring" one again.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

L.S. - Maybe they were forced to kill it.

liberal supporter said...

I think it is technical difficulties at my end. It is trying to transfer from "macromedia.com", maybe trying to update flash movie player or something.

Is there a transcript? I'd like to know what sort of threat this is.

Is it like the PPG bickering? Or more like "we'll send in building inspectors, health inspectors, tax auditors, whatever it takes until we find something to have you closed down and your broadcast license revoked". Or a Keyser Soze kind of threat to "track down every one of your relatives and kill every one of them except for one, who will be left to tell the tale"?

Anonymous said...

Could it be that filter on your computer,LS? The one that filters out all the Lib baloney?
Oh, that's in your head...
lol

Anonymous said...

OMG LMAO. Given the actions of his buddy Ben Chin, Kinsella may have wanted to hold back on this criticism.

Pot, meet Kettle. Kettle, meet Warren.

L.S. - Here's some info, albeit from a somewhat biased source. It gives you the background though.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

OMIGOSH!!! I just saw that clip. "Mr. Hampton, why are you hiding?"

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Tori, thanks for that link. It's very good quality. Much better than any I've seen yet.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

BTW, Jeff Allan's interview with Dalton McGuinty can be heard by joining the 570 Insiders club, which is free, and then click on 'earn points' and 'exclusive audio'.

Basically he was blaming the Feds for this problem, even though the province is responsible for land titles.

Anonymous said...

Who cares why Hampton's hiding.
The story is Liberal thuggery and their entitlement to bully local news broadcasters.

Best story yet - it happened to an NDP vote rich Hamilton news agency.

I'm pulling for CHCH.

The Liberals are DONE in Hamilton, Caledonia.

In honour of Kinsella's Barney stunt with Stockwell Day(actually Kinsella resembles the beast more than day to be honest...Day's fit and toned) how be we send Warren a stuffed Lemming?

SouthernOntarioan said...

The Tories were going to win Caledonia anyways, its not a contestable riding really.

I do find it amusing that when Tories ignore the media its an 'attack on the freedom of the press', but when Liberals threaten media to drop critical stories, there's silence.

Its partisan politics *shrugs* They don't care about the issues, only about their party.
