Once again, we get to wake up to the bias that is our news. The Globe and Mail says it all in its declaration “Off the barbecue circuit, but not off the coals.” The misinformed reporter is referring to the fact that she thinks the conservative party is deeply divided in Quebec. The fact is that it has divisions all over, what family doesn’t? If it wasn’t divided, what would they write, that the center had hijacked it? That has nothing to do with being a functioning party.
I am sure that the liberal party is just as divided, with some MP’s still smarting from being coerced on the marriage issue, as well as other fundamentals. No party is going to be totally solid, unless of course you have a dictatorship. The writer goes on to offer that several candidates have quit because of the party’s fortunes. Good riddance. Who needs people that want to flee when things get tough?
They are better off becoming liberals. At least then they will be taught how to keep their discontent under the covers, and not out on a media stage. The focus has been on Stephen Harper and his leadership, but maybe we should start losing some candidates.
The National Post reads “The summer barbecue season is behind him, but Opposition Leader Stephen Harper is still being raked over the coals.” Have these two sheets become the same paper?
The Ottawa Sun: ” The summer barbecue season is behind him, but Opposition Leader Stephen Harper is still being raked over the coals …”
CTV.CA : “The summer barbecue season is behind him, but Opposition Leader Stephen Harper is still being raked over the coals…”
Isn’t it nice to have so many independent thinking news organizations?
The media constantly criticizes the Conservative Party for having no platform. They do have a platform. If only we could get the media to focus on the issues themselves, instead of these partisan attacks on the person. I guess the media isn’t that concerned with the issues after all.
