I like you Peter! You have lots of sense! Real! Why not people wake up!

Never liked Evan Solomon, in fact he was one of the main reasons I stopped watching the CBC . Problem is there are lots of clones of him lined up to take over his role as political corrections commissar.

Rick, yes I do remember that one. That has been a pattern of Harper’s opponents since 2006. They have made accusation after accusation relentlessly since 2006 and when the accusation proves false, they suddenly fall silent on the accusation and then make another one, and on goes the same pattern over and over.

Those Canadians not paying close attention to politics (the majority I would suggest) then come away with the impression that Harper is a bad man doing all these bad things when in fact it is not the case at all. It really is filthy immoral politics of the most cynical kind, the kind that really does destroy a democracy, the very thing they continually accuse Harper of doing.

Peter. Evidence would suggest this is very true. Remember “wafergate”, the Socialist Media attack that went on for weeks against Stephen Harper? Finally got suddenly and quietly dropped when it was determined there was really no story. However, the intent was really to cause as much damage as possible without being held accountable. Of course, no apologies, or retractions of the spurious reporting! Scum, all of them!

Darren. Good one!

Darren, I am sure they do from a far left wing perspective. I think it goes something like this (based upon the observation of the MSM);

“1. Whenever a Conservative says anything, attack him/her relentlessly, make as many character assassinations on that Conservative and all the people he/she is associated with so long as those associates are Conservative too. Write as many articles as you can attacking said Conservative. Make sure to dig up his/her past as far back as you can and attack that relentlessly too.

2. Whenever a Liberal or NDP say something wrong or stupid or does something illegal, make sure to ignore it. In addition, reinvest effort in attacking the nearest Conservative as a distraction. And if ignoring it is impossible massage your article to describe the Liberal or NDP in the best light as possible, making excuses for him/her. Make references in the same article to a Conservative whom you can attack to distract away from the Liberal/NDP.

3. Always oppose anything a Conservative says and if opposing it is impossible de not report on what they say, but find something to attack that Conservative with."

That is, I think, a reasonable summary of the CBC/MSM charter of ethics.

No, Darren Zbitnew, CBC does not have an ethics standard. I’m sure Hubert Lacroix was just joking… probably had his tongue planted firmly in his cheek the whole time.

The CBC has an ethic standard???
commented 2015-06-10 19:15:35 -0400
So, let’s see, Hubert got caught over expensing and is still at CBC. Evan did not meet the CBC’s ethics standards? So, fraud is okay, but having a business on the side is not? On another topic, Gilles says that he will put Quebec first. So begins another shakedown of the Canadian Taxpayer! It’s time for Canadians to decide whether it is worth the acrimony and cost to keep Quebec in Confederation. As a separate entity, they would only be deserving of the original Quebec, not what it is now. Forget about the St. Lawrence seaway. That remains with Canada. It is a sure bet the aboriginals in Northern Quebec would never agree to be ruled over by the Bloc. What remains? Welcome to the People’s Republic of Quebecistan!
