It was bad enough when Ontario's Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne bullied a Tim Horton's franchisee — by calling him a "bully" —after he criticized her business-crippling minimum wage hike.
But now the CBC are piling on.
First, they've been giving national news coverage to the tiny protests against Tim Horton's. These are paid, professional protesters, from labour unions. (They’re probably more Starbucks people, anyway...) One picket had maybe 19 protestors. Another only four. But it was national news.
Now here's a new thing:
The CBC is hunting people — exposing them, embarrassing them, (“doxxing” them is the phrase) — who dare oppose the Liberal Party:
Tim Hortons franchise owners tell workers to blame Wynne for benefit cuts and to 'not vote Liberal' (...) Memo tells workers to contact the premier if they don't like changes made due to minimum wage hike
The CBC even creeped the Tim Hortons owners' social media account, for pictures of them, to name and shame them.
The state broadcaster, engaged in political hygiene policing? Doxxing any businessman who isn’t clapping loud enough for his own demise?
I get it — politics is dirty. But this is the state broadcaster, enforcing a political line, doing Wynne’s dirty work for her.
Of course you can’t trust the mainstream media to tell you the truth or be unbiased. But now we know they’re basically political enforcers, and you're going to see more of this as the Ontario election gets closer...
THEN columnist Kurt Schlichter joins me to talk about the "Trump Girthers" — those who are more interested in the president's weight than his performance as president.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
