“Manipulated media”

18 Comments

  1. Peter Williams says:

    And under Trudeau’s bill C10, calling this “manipulated media” would be illegal.

  2. Sean says:

    The Liberal Party Executive will need to consider punitive measures for Freeland and possibly all current cabinet ministers when this election is over. This should include automatic exclusion from running for the leadership and possibly automatic exclusion from being candidates in the following election.

  3. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Oh, look. ANOTHER incredibly desperate liar! Take himself with you and both go hide under a rock. The party belongs to Carney now, right after the Trudeau déluge.

  4. Steve T says:

    If you want some evidence of the media skew in Canada, at the present time there isn’t a single mention of this on the CBC.

    If this were the Conservatives manipulating a video about the Liberals, you’ve had every two-bit reporter at the Mother Corp (and they are all two-bit reporters) foaming at the mouth.

    Warren,

    For sure, an argument can be made about peaking too early, apparently à la Harper, in 2004. I’ve got two replies: first a question. Who led out of the gate in 2006 and did that trend hold? And if the answer is Harper and yes, it’s not unreasonable to extrapolate that the same type of trend may have fallen into place after week one.

    • Pedant says:

      Liberals were well ahead of the Conservatives going into the 2006 election, consistenly around 10 points ahead. The Conservatives improved bit by bit over the course of the campaign.

      • Sean says:

        Agree w. Pedant. Tories were losing by 10-15% in some polls in Dec. 2005. They peaked with about a 10-15% lead in mid January and settled in with a lead of around 6% at the end. I feel like a lot of the same things are happening right now. Nanos is showing very similar trends to Dec. 2005. O’Toole will probably take the lead some time next week. The left wing establishment will go bonkers (Margaret Attwood’s brains will explode out her ears) and O’Toole will probably land the plane with about 35% to about 29% with about 150 seats.

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:

        Pedant,

        Thank you.

  6. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Nanos: Liberals + 2

    EKOS: Conservatives + 1

    • Robert White says:

      If it’s going to be a neck-in-neck race between Liberals & Conservatives I’ll throw in with the Conservatives, but if it’s going to be a clear Liberal win then I’m going NDP & Singh for sure.

      I want the Liberals out too, Ronald.

      • Robert,

        Time will tell. I’ll say to you what I always say to potential and actual voters: follow your values and conscience. That way you can never go wrong no matter how you vote.

  7. Nick M. says:

    I can’t tell which one is worse, that or this manipulation done years ago.

    Re. peaking too early… No one knows if O’Toole is indeed peaking right now. He could be at 42% in three weeks.

  9. Robert White says:

    Freeland used to be a journalist and should know enough by now not to engage in Fake News via taking opposition comments out of context whereby she only cherry picked what she mistakenly thought would damage Conservative momentum.

    Canadians are not this stupid or uneducated. Freeland thinks we are collectively ignorant opposition whereas we are all certain that she can wear that label herself.

    Fake News & Fake politicians go together like two peas in a pod. Methinks she learned this behaviour from bad Orange menace.

    10 am Monday. Now its going viral. Even the CBC can’t ignore.

  11. Robert White says:

    From a perspective of Experimental Psychology & Personality Theory it is now quite obvious that Prime Minister Trudeau & Deputy Prime Minister & Finance Minister Freeland are evidencing personality traits/behaviours that are consistent with liars & opportunists that are more concerned about manipulating truths/facts than they are about maintaining their own personal integrity as professionals employed as politicians.

    Clearly, if we had to assess our Liberal Prime Minister & Minister of Finance along lines of deviance & text book Psychopathy we would be searching for indicators that they are willing to lie to the Canadian electorate in order to achieve their goals of opportunistic power grabbing for the sake of absolute power as that’s what opportunists & Confidence men really want above all else.

    Freeland really stepped in a cow pie in so far as she has amply demonstrated that she is no fiduciary of government given her opportunistic willingness to lie to the Canadian people just so she can win her Rosedale seat as an elitist political text book Psychopath.

    I really don’t appreciate insincerity as a personality trait/behaviour as it indicates a lack of real integrity and that’s not what we want in our politicians IMHO.

    Please assess the Liberals along character & persona leveraged to win this election. These are people that have shallow personas and their opportunism shines through on their tactless tactics to misinform Canadians merely for the sake of holding tyrannical power over them with yet more compounded lies to facilitate their lackluster style of governance.

    The only reason were were foisted into election mode became clear when the Liberals shut down the DoD investigation into retired General Vance. This is why they prorogued Parliament too.

    Shallow politicians mired in opportunism is not what any of us want in Parliament.

    Freeland gets a solid failing grade as a politician and unqualified so-called ‘leader’ in our midst politically.

    She gets an F at worst and a D- at best.

    Throw the Psychopaths OUT of Parliament!

    RW
