Earlier this week I took you through Maxime Bernier’s tweets about the cult of diversity that's being pushed by Justin Trudeau.
I liked Bernier's tweets. They showed a bit of pep and courage.
And it was interesting to watch the response to them, especially from the CBC.
After going on about Bernier, the CBC's Rosemary Barton noted that he “chose” to make those tweets on the anniversary of that U.S. racist march in Charlottesville. (In fact, he made them before and after that arbitrary date, too.)
The CBC then admitted that they hadn’t spoken to Bernier before doing that report. But they just made that up anyway.
So Bernier replied:
Just saw this report which implies a “timing” between my tweets last Sunday and some violent demonstration in the US. How do you know that I “chose" to send [my] messages on the first anniversary of the riots in Charlottesville” @CBCTheNational ? This is despicable. #fakenews
Well, Rosemary Barton replied. And it’s amazing:
How do we you didn't time to coincide with that anniversary given you won't give any interviews to anyone about anything you tweet? How about you answer some questions and defend your position in front of people then we can talk about what is fake. Thanks for watching. #realnews
I love that Bernier is calling out the CBC as fake news. Because we all know it’s true. And Barton more or less admits it here, too.
It's nice to see a conservative who doesn’t cower in the face of the media, for once. Who speaks clearly, not in a fog.
I'll show you Scheer's media scrum from yesterday to show you what I mean.
But only part of the 11 minute video, because it was painful to watch the whole thing.
If Andrew Scheer doesn’t learn how to deal with the media pretty quickly, he will not only not be prime minister in next year’s election, he won’t be opposition leader anymore, either...
NEXT: Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey and I talk about the media pressuring Scheer to drop Bernier, while staying silent on Iqra Khalid giving an award to an anti-Semite — twice!
THEN: Breitbart News Senior Editor at Large Joel Pollak joins me to talk about Trump's revocation of John Brennan's security clearance, and Brennan's weird reaction.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
