    enemies lists are a natural component of the 2019 Campaign for Corruption

    As a PR/comms man Warren, can you honestly say that you’ve never been asked to categorize reporters/publications based on their history of how they have covered the issue that you’re helping to frame?

    It’s a sincere question, because I don’t know how these things work. But it seems to me that knowing these things would be pretty standard to anyone wanting a sound media strategy.

      I think the answer you might be looking for is already in Warren’s tweet: “We always knew these existed. First time we’ve seen thru #cdnfoi.”

    • Walter says:

      Nobody doubts that enemy list exist within political parties.
      But having civil servants compile the list on behalf of the political party is the new low that Trudeau’s team has set.

      • Campbell says:

        Except there’s nothing there to suggest that this was done on behalf of the political party! How did you come to the conclusion that this was on behalf of the Liberals?

        Everything points to it being done on behalf of the CIB itself, which again, I suspect is a totally standard thing for any agency’s communications department to do.

        I did ask whether WK had ever seen/done this before in his work, and his silence is deafening. I agree with many of his attacks on the Liberals, but this one appears to be transparently phony from where I’m sitting.

    Competent and capable political operators do not compile lists. Amateurs do.

  4. Paul says:

    Isn’t that the type of list that the Chinese “basic dictatorship” that Trudeau so admires would keep?

  5. Lance says:

    Are you on that list, Warren? I wouldn’t be surprised if your were. You’re soothsaying has rung a few bells, and deservedly so LOL 😀

    I know it shouldn’t but it always surprises me when members of the media basically ignore this

    & this

    or roll over like tame puppies and say kick me again please.

    If WK’s name is on your enemies list…. I recommend that you pause and seriously re-consider what you are getting into. Then you should immediately quit whatever the f$%k is was that made him your enemy and do the exact opposite.

  9. doconnor says:

    People shouldn’t be making secret media enemies lists these days. The way to do it is to tell anyone and everyone who will listen who your media enemies are, like Donald Trump and Rob Ford.

  10. Montrealaise says:

    This reminds me of the time it was revealed that “Tricky Dick” Nixon compiled a list of enemies in the media before the 1972 election. Of course, everyone who wasn’t on the list complained (half-jokingly) that their feelings were hurt because they weren’t considered important enough to make the list.

  11. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    I’m shocked: sweet Catherine has nothing to say about Butts. And the rest of ’em are precisely like that.

  12. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Fournier is reporting that the Conservative lead has evaporated. Here are your choices: you can either take that to heart that seemingly all is now well for the Liberals heading into an eventual campaign OR you can put your faith in the fact that roughly 66% in polls want change in Ottawa. That’s where I’m at.

    But the new wrinkle? It seems some want to punish Trudeau and the Liberals by only reducing them to a May induced minority. If that’s on target, Scheer is in for a lot of sleepless nights between now and October.
