Media Party admits Duffy trial was only about taking down Harper government

Brian LilleyArchive

For a while it was the ONLY story that mattered out of Ottawa, the trial of the century, now it is nothing.

The Mike Duffy trial resumed this week but with fewer reporters covering and less interest. Why? As you'll see, the media party is being very frank and up front, they don't care about this story now that the real target of the story is out of office.

It’s telling that after a decade of power, the biggest scandal of the Harper government is that one of its members donated $90k to the federal government out of his own pocket.

No, I am saying that people are talking specifically about you among others here.
commented 2015-11-20 21:18:11 -0500
If the courts find that Mike Duffy didn’t break any rules what happens then? What happens to the $90K?
What exactly is the problem with Nigel Wrights involvement? Is it simply optics? Is it some sort of fraud? How is Stephen Harper involved. I am prepared to be open to the idea that something illegal happened but I don’t know what that something is? My understanding is that Mike Duffy has not been found guilty of anything yet. My understanding is that the rules around senate expenses are confusing and that unethical spending practices have occurred for years by many senators.
I like Stephen Harper. I am biased. If he did something illegal than he will need to answer for that. If this is a witch hunt the witch hunters should be made to answer. The truth matters or it doesn’t. I have a feeling that for the Liberal Broadcasting Corporation the truth will never get in the way of a good story. Especially if that story advances the Liberal agenda.

Here again we see the hypocrisy shining brightly “PEOPLE LIKE YOU” as mentioned by Michael. If a conservative were to use that term they’d be called racist, bigoted, whatever-phobic, but it is ok for the politic left to use the term “PEOPLE LIKE YOU”.

Terry Rudden and Jimmy Da Silva were banned. There is a discussion about this and about people like you on another media site.

The mainstream media party is and always will spew their leftist propaganda. I haven’t watched any of these stations since the elections and get my news on line.In fact I am thinking about cancelling my cable package altogether. The only way we can fight back is to boycott them and hopefully it will hurt their bottom line by having less viewers. Why aggravate yourself as they will never change.
commented 2015-11-20 20:41:05 -0500
Why is this so surprising? Harper is no longer Prime Minister, so because of that – he will no longer face any consequences.

If OJ Simpson died in the middle of his murder trial, the media would have lost interest there are well.

Does this really need an explanation?

Time for the west to secede.

The “Media party” has admitted nothing. The only sources you have linked are Rebel stories. And of course there’s less interest. Harper is no longer Prime Minister. If he had won the election he’d still be a person of interest and the story would be far bigger… and would be heavily covered despite lack of an election to “take down Harper over”. This clearly indicates it has nothing to do with some sort of conspiracy theory; simply that he’s a nobody and nobody cares anymore.

90% of the Canadian media endorsed him.

Disgusting, but one could see this coming from a mile away.

HYACINTH commented 2 hours ago – one 2 minute segment on the 11pm news maketh not coverage.

I agree that it was not covered properly. I merely pointed out there was some coverage albeit small in comparison to Duffy. Well maybe small is an understatement, but it was mentioned so it can’t be said is was never mentioned if one wanted to nit pic the fact.
commented 2015-11-20 19:27:15 -0500
John, believe whatever you want to believe. Good night.
commented 2015-11-20 19:24:53 -0500
John, seriously? There’s a Hyacinth Facebook and Twitter account, neither is me, but let me guess you’ll say it is me.
Did you even go to the site and read anything?
commented 2015-11-20 19:23:58 -0500
Right Hy they backed a party that was in 3rd place going into the election and then in the last days switched their support to the losing conservatives. Sure they did.
commented 2015-11-20 19:23:49 -0500
Drew , who’s running the country???? Harper should be if he did a good job. But he didn’t. Adiós Steve. Maybe your new leader will have a chance …. in 2020.

Seeing hourly updates on hate spew targeted at Conservatives – that’s coverage, as unethical as the media party is.

“look at her twitter account”

“I don`t give a rats ass …” “Why would they care if they thought Trudeau was going to lose?”

You can make your point without vulgarity. There is favoritism in the media, who gets invited where and so on. They backed Trudeau first, thinking he’d be the winner, when the tide changed and they thought maybe not then they half-heartedly backed Harper. Its called garnering favoritism.
commented 2015-11-20 18:59:35 -0500
Well said Don.
commented 2015-11-20 18:53:35 -0500
Do any of you think any of the bureaucrats, judges or prosecutors are anything but Liberal?
So you don`t think conservatives have ever appointed any of the above to those positions?
How many Supreme Court judges did Harper appoint. I guess he must have not known they we all really `Liberals` as they mostly rejected any legislation the cons tried to appeal. He did the same with Duffy, Wallin and Brasseau. I guess he just wasn`t that smart.
commented 2015-11-20 18:51:24 -0500
So the evidence showed the media party was full of it, so they stopped covering it so they would not have to admit it.
commented 2015-11-20 18:50:45 -0500
Don cloud what truth did shiny pony bring up? The unions and media lied for him constantly and blatantly. And sorry the truth is that Shiny Pony is not ready, being elected does not mean you are ready.

The Media screwed us and destroyed our country, our lives and our economy and put in their preferred tone deaf Chinese Govt. loving leftist playboy! Now there bored with the story – I believe the least we could do is not view their Networks or purchase their Newspapers – seems that is pretty light punishment in comparison to the toll this anti quality life for Canadians’ this government is going to give us! You know what? For those who are too blind to see.It’s All for Naught! You are going to learn it is all one big fraud! But at that point it maybe too late! Those that didn’t vote for Liberals shouldn’t have to pay – that is what I don’t like about our Canadian Democracy system – if 51% of people want to be controlled by government, enslaved and dictated and lied to then 49% are forced to suffer what they wanted no part of! There has got to be a better way than this? I hope I find it my lifetime – whatever little there is left of it! Thanks’ to all those that voted for change for the worst!

Just think how your going to appreciate all this if a member of your family or you, get injured because of an act of an extremist Refugee that wasn’t vetted properly! Won’t you be so grateful to the Liberals’ and the Media?
Kind a gives you that warm Leftist Liberal/NDP fuzzy feeling doesn’t it?
commented 2015-11-20 18:44:40 -0500
I don`t give a rats ass about Wynne, Hyacinth as I`m from BC and we have our own problems.
So you think they endorsed the conservatives at the last minute because as you said, “if you notice it was a last turn by the media when they thought Trudeau might lose”. Why would they care if they thought Trudeau was going to lose?
The owners of the papers or most anyway have always supported the conservatives no matter what some journalist or reporter writes in their paper in the off election years.

The Duffy “Trial” was never anything more than a Liberal biased witch hunt.
Do any of you think any of the bureaucrats, judges or prosecutors are anything but Liberal?
Does anyone have any doubt that the entire Elections Canada power players are Liberal?
I don’t have any doubt on either question.
commented 2015-11-20 18:37:17 -0500
The reason ole Stevie fell is that darn kid ( He’s just not ready) used something you’re not supposed to bring up during elections …. the truth … Plus the Liberal’s used social media expertly to spread … the truth …Facebook, Twitter , G+ … Stevie … only commercial’s saying," He’s Just not ready." Ten years running the country into the ground and that’s all your people can come up with? No wonder you’re a party in Ottawa that " Just" sits there for the next 4 years. Justin never needed Duffy, Brazeau (Stevie’s little token Indian) or Wallin to win, he used …. the truth.

John, you really think that was the real Joan? Hardly.

Oh yes Joan Abernethy or as she used to be called on SNN, joansvoice is a real lefty. I`ll turn the sarcasm off now.

What do you expect when the supposedly “national” broadcaster is a leftist propaganda machine skewing the facts on my dime?
