The mainstream media loves to run stories about bullying, sexism, inclusiveness and diversity, except of course when the person being bullied is a conservative woman and the one doing the bullying, is a “progressive” man.
Sklar made demeaning and evil posts on her Facebook page, calling Batters a Harper troll and suggesting she only got her job because her husband committed suicide.
Batters, a lawyer and mental health advocate, watched her husband lose his long struggle with depression, so you would think the media might cover this story of her online harrassment by a politically-motivated man.
Remarkably, though, I only counted four headlines in the mainstream media about this matter, with most of them skirting over what happened.
Compare that to the endless headlines about left-wing politician Sandra Jansen when she made claims about receiving threats on the internet.
Notably, the CBC didn’t run one article about the attack on Batters.
Could it be because Batters is a conservative woman who doesn’t back down from holding the Prime Minister’s feet to the fire?
