Duffy trial: No new revelations, same old Media Party frenzy

Is the Mike Duffy trial a criminal trial or a political one? From my vantage point here in Ottawa, I’d say it’s a bit of both.

    I follow these proceedings with interest – However it has come to the point in the last few years that I don’t believe a goddamned word anyone in government at any level says – Common sense dictates that Duffy and the others lied and should be arrested and put in jail – If anyone believes that Harper didn’t know about the payments as Wright says they are confused – The whole load of politicians anymore are not worth the steam that rises from an outdoor winter shit!

    Knowing how government guidelines work I find it nothing more than political posturing to claim Duggy committed a criminal act. If any thing any blame lies with the ones in finance who approved his claim. As for Wright paying the disputed amount with his own money, actually miniscule compared to Liberals’ frauds, there was nothing illegal and certainly no tax dollars involved. This has been an attempt from the start to bring down the PM and his government; nothing more, nothing less.

      Bingo on all fronts, Alain.

    The Canadian MSM effectively REDUCE Canada to a PARODY COUNTRY when they crow and croon over small potatoes like the Mike Duffy thingummybob. It makes me feel ashamed to be Canadian.

    Perhaps BCF could initiate an annual CRAP Awards The CRAP Awards would serve to highlight Canadian Really Atrocious Press events/players/alleged journalists. I hereby predict that – if BCF takes up this idea – Heather Mallick will receive the Bitchy Coverage Award, and Naomi Klein will get the Byte Bitch Award.

    This could be fun.

    CBC is in Duffy vomit overdrive during Power&Propaganda …dragging up 10 year old video clips…non stop.
    then throw in one Justin puff piece

    This whole issue is over an alleged crime for $90,000.00.
    Yet…. I still remember when Svend Robinson was caught stealing a $60,000.00 ring and was forced to admit it two days later . At first the MSM backed Svend that it was a baseless allegation , but when HE said he did it the Media backed off and even resorted to finding some excuse other than he was a closet thief.

    Hey , CBC…. he’s a crook and got caught, it wasn’t the stress from homophobia which he first tried to pawn off, it wasn’t the Mental Illness he was coached to fake and get a Doctor dragged into his lie.

    Today, i no longer listen to the usual radio shows for Hosts that debate issues, the reason is that the CRTC has so many rules to protect minorities from being hurt when the truth is spoken on the radio that I saw the Hosts forced to nod their heads and avoid challenging the lies by the protected groups.

    Who wants to lose their job of 20 years plus on the radio during the new Thought-Control era where the book for Banned Words in the Studio is thicker than the CRTC Operations manual for a Licensed Broadcaster .
    Some COPS don’t even enforce some of the laws for fear of being called a racist, islamophobe, homophobe or misogynist.

  • I don’t remember the popular press being so eager when Kathleen Wynne’s best friend, Ben Levin, was convicted of crimes involving children.

  • The Butterfly

    All for $90,000.

    • Alain

      Not even since it was repaid with private money. That is far more than one can say about the billions of dollars of theft by Liberals.

    • Clausewitz

      Funny we don’t hear much about Mac Harb. His tally for deceit was $180,00.00. But hey, you know, Liberal.
