Are you already tired of the Mike Duffy trial?

Judging by their tweets about the Mike Duffy trial in Ottawa, reporters have quickly gone from obsessed to bored.

From discussing which “bilingual” hashtag to use to tweeting banal details, rather than the details of the proceedings, it seems some reporters have had difficulty being engaged in the trial they desperately want all of us to think of as the most important thing ever.

    Why don’t they just horsewhip the whole lot of them on the steps of Parliament, end their pensions and slash their office budgets in half.

    Just for a start.

      I’m impressed with your management acumen and style.

    The Puffster’s corpulent little bod doesn’t seem to be providing a lot of meat for those ravenous lions of the press corps.

    $42,802 vs Billions wasted on Ontario government programs (Ornge, eHealth, cancelled gas plants, Mars).
    Obviously the $42,802 was the larger crime. Mike’s biggest mistake was that he didn’t waste enough money. Or he belonged to the wrong party.

      Ding, ding, ding, ding………… Wrong party for the win.

      The Left does not understand what an order of magnitude is.

      Look how Svend Robinson used the NDP and his MP status to milk the Media for sympathy and fabricate his Mental Health issue to drove him to steal a $60,000.00 Ring for his marriage to a younger man .
      He was treated like the victim in all of it , and even Jack Layton let Svend run for the NDP in BC again even after the farce where no Black teen in Toronto would avoid jail time for a lesser crime around $8000.00 when Svend’s was $60 K .

      So much for Svend’s BS in parliament about social justice and equal treatment in the courts no matter the Financial of Social status.
      That weasel and liar denied the crime for two days until the video convicted him and he THEN called RCMP on himself for special treatment to avoid the Social Justice in the Courts to end up in an a$$-pounding federal prison with his soap on a rope.

      Look at Michael Bryant that was a drunk on the job and killed a bike rider with his car and played the victim that his life was ruined and change for good by this trauma . $200,000.00 Plus on a good lawyer bought him freedom from a prison , this guy was the Attr General for the Province and the Moral Yardstick for obeying the Laws.

    The liberal party is saving millions of dollars in advertising. The media is in full blown lets get rid of Harper mode. They have turned a squalid little story into a daily major soap opera in the attempt to link Harper to the forces of evil. Last week ctv news gave a national audience to a Harper is evil book by someone nobody has heard of, and today they found another nobody with another Harper is evil book. Both networks on their political shows concentrate on Harper needs to go. But then I’m probably being paranoid, as we all know that our media is unbiased and professional.

  • jayme

    Would the media be all worked up if he was a liberal.

    • J. C.

      Well, we don’t hear much about that Harb fellow, do we…???

    • Surele Surele

      Do we hear much about the professor pervert? not much, heh!

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      They are entitled to their entitlements.

    • BillyHW

      He is a liberal!

  • ontario john

    Strange, there is no media outrage that Wynne has cut hundreds of nursing positions at Ontario hospitals while spending millions on a horse barn for the pan am games. Funny old world isn’t it.

  • andycanuck

    So will all of the CBC reporters be releasing all of their expense account information now? It’d only be fair.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Hold not thy breath, if thou wouldst have my council. 😉

      • disqus_W6sfZCiOd8

        I am so cross!

  • BillyHW

    So $20,000-$90,000 Duffy scandal vs. Adscam 1/4 billion, HSBC scandal 1 billion, gas plants scandal 1 billion + …

    • mobuyus

      It’s the narrative that Harper has completely destroyed Canada that matters to these numbskulls. Going forward.

  • Tokenn

    If Mike Duffy had done anything to advance the cause of SMALL, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, I wouldn’t care if he scraped off all the gold leaf in the Senate Chamber and melted it down to make cufflinks. As it is, he’s only useful as a punching bag.

  • Gary

    What difference does it makes now.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    Time was we would at least have had the satisfaction of hauling the Puffster through the streets in a shitwagon getting pelted with garbage, then off to the gallows with him. Goodie vendors and pickpockets working a good crowd all chanting “Oh my my, he’s going to die…” when the guest of honour appeared …

    Huh? Oh, sorry. Just an old man reminiscing.
