Protest video UPDATE: Why the Media Party won't condemn Catherine Porter even after "she lied and lied and lied"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Today the Toronto Star let me rebutt columnist Catherine Porter's highly fictionalized account of my interaction with her and her daughter at last weekend's climate change rally.

(You can see the complete video of our encounter HERE.)

But some of you might be wondering how they can keep Porter on staff, now that there's proof that she lied.

The answer is that Canada's Media Party aren't just reporters.

They're social justice warriors with double standards.

And they'll side with Porter over someone like me any day, even if I have all the hard evidence in my favour.

Alan that was excellent!
commented 2015-07-09 13:12:08 -0400
I am pleased that the Toronto Star gave Ezra the chance to be heard and revealing the lies of Catherine Porter. She should have been fired. I do not buy the Star because I know that they have liars for journalists—remember what they did to Rob Ford and the lies about how Omar Kdar was just a child soldier,

There goes Terry again. Tries to come up with an argument, but as always resorts to attacking anyone who doesn’t agree with him.
commented 2015-07-09 13:03:37 -0400
LOL. You’ll notice I also don’t spend a lot of time trying to explain twelve-tone music to deaf people, post-impressionism to the blind, or integrity to followers of Ezra Levant.
commented 2015-07-09 12:51:23 -0400
Be that way if you want to Terry, I notice you can’t come up with any other examples.
commented 2015-07-09 12:50:33 -0400
The media consortium to the rescue. Facts be damned.
commented 2015-07-09 12:47:03 -0400
You’re a True Believer, Liza. May Ezra bless you and keep you safe.
commented 2015-07-09 12:40:06 -0400
I don’t know how much fun it was, but calling Ezra a liar over the Salutin comment sure was silly.
commented 2015-07-09 12:29:15 -0400
Hello, just thought you would all like to know Ms. porter’s email is available at the bottom of the story/ lies she posted. I just sent her an email, letting her know what I think of her little stunt, maybe you could all do the same! Just so she knows how pathetic her little stunt was, especially using a nine year old to do her bidding!

Personally, I haven’t seen anything Rude One has written that is intelligent.
commented 2015-07-09 12:08:01 -0400
“Meds”? Really?
commented 2015-07-09 12:01:54 -0400
Jason: so if you don’t pay attention to what Salutin actually said, but look beyond the words to what you think he MEANT, and ignore the fact that this is not “The Star” but a columnist, then Ezra’s statement is accurate.
Anyway, fun but silly conversation.
commented 2015-07-09 11:48:36 -0400
I’ve found Jimmy is just an anarchy style writer. Tends to froth and run at the mouth with little substance. At least Terry does try and add some opposing viewpoints. But you’re right Liza. Terry and Joan are of similar styles. I don’t really know if meds have anything to do with it though, as that would be conjecture.
commented 2015-07-09 11:39:04 -0400
Terry is like Joan, very well written on certain subjects. When off meds and or bored, insulting, rude, misrepresents and twists what people say. Then there is Jimmy.
commented 2015-07-09 11:15:37 -0400
Charleton, I am only trying to be fair. On the majority, you’re right. However, there has been the odd time Terry has shown to be capable of intelligent thought. I have to give credit where credit is due. Otherwise I’m a hypocrite to my own musings and opinions.

Terry, Beyond Salutin’s words is his meaning, and Ezra was perceptive and smart enough to see it. As would anyone. With the world covered in half-truths and vague facts, you have to look beyond the surface to see the true facts for what they are.
commented 2015-07-09 11:12:33 -0400
Salutin was leading us to believe he thought giving the Order of Canada to Khadr was something to consider.
commented 2015-07-09 11:06:27 -0400
I didn’t omit that part Terry, it is the line you quoted in the past sans the," though its a thought". The link is there for anyone to watch, and hear, to confirm for themselves, that’s why I included it. Reading it intact you can see it is an endorsement, “I’m not saying Omar Khadr should get the Order of Canada, though its a thought”. It is a side door endorsement. He’s not sure he wants to say it, so he says " though its a thought", he is considering it as the right thing to do.
It is a ridiculous argument to call what Ezra said a lie. Is that all you got, by all means post the rest of your examples .
commented 2015-07-09 11:04:59 -0400
Jason : cutting right to the chase:
a) Rick Saluting says: “I am not saying Omar Khadr should get the Order of Canada; though it’s a thought.”
b) Ezra says: "The Toronto Star actually thinks terrorist Omar Khadr should get the Order of Canada. We’re not making this up”.
Come on, guy.
commented 2015-07-09 11:03:32 -0400
Jason, Terry is mindless if you look at the hundreds of posts on every topic Ezra writes about. He is a troll. A rude One at that!
commented 2015-07-09 10:56:19 -0400
Charleton, not all of what Terry says is mindless, but it does come across as rather biased and judgmental. But then, that’s anyone’s right in accordance to free speech.
commented 2015-07-09 10:53:09 -0400
Terry I think you just like to hear yourself talk. Mindless drivel.
commented 2015-07-09 10:52:49 -0400
Terry said: “Salutin is not the Toronto Star (unless you believe that everything every columnist in every medium speaks for the owners of that medium.)”

While columnists don’t speak (or aren’t supposed to), everything they write unless stated as an opinion or satire, represents the said medium. That’s how is gets perceived by the general public anyway. It’s basic perception and sociology.
commented 2015-07-09 10:52:25 -0400
Jason: or insightful. Or honest. Or significant. But sure, “charismatic” is one attribute.
commented 2015-07-09 10:44:36 -0400
Liza: nice selective quoting. I can understand how you mistake Ezra’s buffoonery for “journalism”.
In his original Rebel Post, Ezra reported: “The Toronto Star actually thinks terrorist Omar Khadr should get the Order of Canada”. He then emphasized in the text with the phrase “We’re not making this up”.
a) Rick Salutin said no such thing. He said: “I am not saying Omar Khadr should get the Order of Canada; though it’s a thought”. You sorta accidentally omitted that first bit, Liza. Probably just an oversight.
b) Salutin is not the Toronto Star (unless you believe that everything every columnist in every medium speaks for the owners of that medium.)

He might not, but it doesn’t make his work any less credible. To get the attention of viewers and readers you need to be charismatic.
commented 2015-07-09 10:35:02 -0400
Terry to me your rants are driven by hate for Ezra who has done more for society than you ever will. I think you are. Jealous of Ezra. I can understand that.
commented 2015-07-09 10:33:51 -0400
“you’re hellbent on downplaying Ezra simply on the fact that YOU don’t like him.”
I “like” him fine. He’s a smart, funny guy. I actually own a personally autographed copy of Ethical Oil, and as I’ve said several times, he really does NOT take himself as seriously as his fans do.
commented 2015-07-09 10:24:32 -0400
It was not a lie Terry and you know it.
commented 2015-07-09 10:22:29 -0400
I’m not disagreeing that the Paul Watson story is a good one. But you’re hellbent on downplaying Ezra simply on the fact that YOU don’t like him. You’ve made your point, and that’s great. Kudos. And what makes this story any less relevant? Is it the fact that Ezra exposed out a minor player, who set this whole thing up and used her own DAUGHTER as an attack strategy? Or is it because it was Ezra who exposed Porter and not someone like Mansbridge or others of his “reputable standing”?

Personally, getting back to the story, I don’t care a whit about Ezra’s pride in this or Porter’s self-serving advancement. What I care about is the effect this whole debacle is going to do to this poor puppet of a little girl. Porter’s daughter is the REAL victim in this, and that’s what many are overlooking.
