CBC Feeds Questions to Puffin MPs on the So-Called Ethics Committee

This development does not look good for the credibility of the Puffin members of the Ethics Committee. It's clear one or more of them have been colluding with their lapdog network. Yes, I'm talking about the Canadian Peoples' Agitprop Network.

CTV's Mike Duffy show has confirmed the allegations of former Liberal Cabinet Minister and current TVA journalist Jean Lapierre that Grit MPs on the Ethics Committee were given yesterday's questions to ask by the journalists of the CBC.

"I knew all about those questions," said Lapierre. "They were written by the CBC and provided to the Liberal Members of Parliament and the questions that Pablo Rodriguez asked were written by the CBC, and I can't believe that, but last night, an influential Member of Parliament came to me and told me those are the questions that the CBC wants us to ask tomorrow."

Your Tax Dollars at Work

So let me get this straight... some of the $55 or so that each Canadian taxpayer spends to keep the CBC on air goes directly toward benefiting the Puffin Party of Canada by educating their stupider MPs about what questions to ask so as to damage the government of YOURS TRULY?

I must say I am shocked but not surprised at this new evidence that CBC keeps ethically challenged journalists on the payroll. This is just more of the same pathetic service to Canadians.

Of course, this is nothing new for the Nanny Network. We now know all about Steffie Camero and the Airbust™ Crusaders. But there is more. In 2004, Stephanie Matteis of CBC's The National sent out thousands of emails searching for typical Canadians that would not vote for YOURS TRULY because they thought I was, here we go again, "scary". In her letter, she wrote, "I'm looking for someone who was going to vote Conservative in the last election but changed their minds along the way because they were scared, freaked out or worried about the Conservatives, the Conservative agenda or its leader. So, instead, they voted Liberal. Now you're facing the same dilemma this time. If this describes you AND you are willing to travel for a couple of days next month AND you are willing to appear on television then please get in touch immediately."

Presumably the network would bring all these people to Toronto, put them up in the Harbour Castle and have a good old town hall meeting.

Then in August, 2006, CBC reporter Christina Lawand deliberately misrepresented an answer given by YOURS TRULY.

Canadians want to know, "When will this shame and outrage ever end?"

Update: My staff have drafted a query to CBC ombudsman Vince Carlin (wasn't he a standup star in the 70s?), and we anticipate the usual grovelling letter in reply, but no real changes in policy unless they fire most of the newsroom. I suspect we'll also be bringing the matter up with the Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council.

What? the CBC is not a member of the Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council? Jeez whyeverthehellnot?
New Developments: It is reported that Carlin is an expert in ethics, and his wife teaches journalistic ethics at Ryerson, so let's see him strut his stuff. My guess is there will be one child journo sent to the Gulag, and the Corpse will then pronounce that all is well.

Keep on Puffin.
