The Day the Con Media Ended Up Looking Like Idiots
As I'm sure you know, I have absolutely no respect for most of the Parliamentary press gang.
They are incredibly mediocre, gratingly provincial, almost entirely dedicated to trying to return the Cons to power, to satisfy their corporate masters.
And their coverage of Justin Trudeau's visit to India, from their perches in drab downtown Ottawa, couldn't have been more appalling and disgraceful.
For first the Con media couldn't hide their contempt for the traditional clothes Trudeau and his family wore, in an attempt to reach out to the Indian people.
Which I thought was borderline racist.
But then they probably get extra brownie points (or badly needed food and booze bucks) for going after his children...
So who knows the real reason they were so worked up?
Maybe it's just that Parliament is on a break, so there's nothing easy to write about. And their greedy and increasingly desperate bosses are still demanding stories.
More stories !!!!! More words!!!!!
Or no job, or no gruel, or no whatever...
So you can understand why the old boy's press gang went into a frenzy, when they saw this story hanging like a tiny worm from a hook.
They couldn't believe their luck. It seemed to them, at least at first, that you COULD cover India from Ottawa.
And they went for it like a starving trout goes after a big fat fly.
Again, and again, and again, and again.
And were even joined by the grubby hate monger Ezra Levant.
Who knows a story with bigot potential when he sees one.
While Andrew Coyne fired off one anti-Trudeau tweet after the other like a man possessed, or retweeted the hateful garbage of other Con media dotards.
It was a frigging frenzy, but unfortunately for the Con media they forgot to ask who was holding the rod and the line attached to the hook.
And it was left to John Ivison of all people, to remind them of the reality of India.
How did Jaspal Atwal, a man convicted of the attempted murder of an Indian politician and a former member of a banned extremist organization intent on creating a Sikh homeland by dismembering India, get into that country in the first place?
“This was not an accident,” said a senior security source within the Canadian government, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Atwal has developed links with the Indian government and his political views “have evolved” in recent years. “They no longer see him as the enemy,” said the source, who believes it is convenient for some in India’s government, if not necessarily for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to embarrass Trudeau for being soft on Sikh separatism.
Asked which part of the Indian government might be so motivated, the source said, “The intelligence service.”
Which was followed by a report from the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation, which made themselves, and the rest of the Con media look even more like idiots.
And of course the other story they were flogging, the one that claimed that India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi was shunning Trudeau, wasn't exactly strengthened when Modi tweeted this:
And it got considerably worse for the Con media, when these photos were released.
And no doubt had all of them cursing the complexity of India, and longing for the simpler days of Stephen Harper...
When they could share samosas with Boss Harper, and kiss his ass all the way to India.
And of course, happily join him when he flew across Canada on Modi's plane, and debased himself beyond recognition.
By looking like Modi's personal servant, which was far more cringeworthy than anything Justin Trudeau has so far done in India.
But then of course the Con media are bitter. They would have LOVED to have gone to India with Trudeau, like they would have done in the good old days.
But now it's the bad old days for the Con media. They're throwing interns overboard, and rationing toilet paper in the newsrooms, just to stay afloat.
So their bosses couldn't afford to send them...
And they had to cover India from Ottawa or Toronto. Sad.
And the story can be summed up like this:
The Indian Intelligence Service had an agenda.
But the Con media was only interested in destroying Justin Trudeau.
So they missed the real story, played into the hands of Hindu extremists and The Rebel bigots.
And Trudeau, and Modi, ended up looking much better than they did...
