Globe Withheld News Of Wynne’s Union Bribes In Aid Of Justin’s Campaign Because They Weren’t Relevant To Election

National Editor Dennis Choquette said the earliest the story could have been ready for publication was for Monday morning’s paper: federal voting day. He said he decided to wait.

“Voters were not being asked to elect a provincial government, so I did not feel that we were withholding essential information that could inform their decision at the polls. We did risk our appearance of neutrality, however, were we to have published on Election Day,” Mr. Choquette said.


That’s a funny notion of neutrality…

    Front page news if its negative about Conservatives.

    Because journalists lack ethics, professionalism and any sense of integrity. They are political hacks, period.

      Mostly women too.

    The problem is that the rich elitist left own and/or control the media in this country like CBC ( ice $150 million for total bias reporting during the campaign). Please Mr. Trump get elected as president and invade Canada just to get rid of the disease of left wing corruption and government.

  • David Murrell

    Even now the elite media complex is burying the union bribe scandal. This is one reason I think young upstart media like the Rebel media will do well during Justin’s 10+ years as prime minister. With corrupt media like the Globe and Mail protecting the Liberals, the Rebel media and small blogs will flourish.

    One more Kim Dong Wynne scandal is like one more maggot on a rotting corpse – doesn’t really make much difference. All the lemmings in Toronto would have still gone over the cliff even if this had been front page news on Monday morning.

    It’s a tradition in the States.

    But Mike Duffy!

    The media in this country out does Nazi Germany for controlling the message. Only certain views are allowed. Joseph Goebbels would feel right at home here as leftists make the media and entertainment industries cheerleaders for every leftist cause and the Liberal Party.

      A few days ago, Mitt Romney complained that both the left and the right only listened to the news that they wanted to hear. Is there an unbiased mainstream news source? I’m not aware of any – to the best of my knowledge, they all toe the liberal line, even Fox.

      I’m not complaining about bloggers, because we wouldn’t know anything about what’s going on without them, but they aren’t *really* news sources because their stories are chosen to fit a framework and they don’t have to cover “what’s happening right now” the way television and radio do. We may use them as ersatz news sources but that isn’t their function. Even aggregators like BadBlue and Drudge can’t be considered an unbiased news outlet.

      • David

        So your saying that the left and the right are equally unscrupulous?

        • Xavier

          Apparently you have trouble with comprehension.

          • David

            Why thank you.

    As partisan as I am I do remember Dion getting sandbagged by the media with the if you were prime minister what would you do differently interview.

    • Clausewitz

      It was a valid question which went to the heart of why the public should vote for him. That was not sandbagging, that just was Dion’s complete inability to come up with a plausible answer.

    The provinces are going to start turning blue.
    First up is Manitoba.

    • Clausewitz

      You give too much credit to the average what’s in it for me taker.

  • Barry Thornton

    And how much did she pay Mr. Choquette for aiding in the coverup?

  • terrence

    I had a quick read of the 27 comments on the Mop and Pail article – 26 of them were critical of the “position”.

  • If the popular press can hide the truth about a convicted child pornographer, how hard is it to hide this scandal?
