The Media to Jody and Jane: Stop Playing Games
In the seven weeks since the fake scandal erupted, the MSM's chosen role has been to act as its giddy cheerleaders.
But now some are starting to notice that Jody Wilson-Rabould and Jane Philpott seem to be playing some kind of weird game.
And like most Canadians some are starting to say enough is enough.
So here is Susan Delacourt telling the dynamic duo to stop playing hide-and-seek.
These two ex-ministers keep telling us they have more to say. So let’s have it. If the truth is this urgent and all-consuming, worth putting every other issue on hold, why does it keep hiding behind some obscure, debatable rules?
That’s what speaking truth to power looks like. It doesn’t dance behind anonymous leaks, cryptic interviews or polite, “No I couldn’t possibly break the rules” evasion. It doesn’t issue vague statements and then shrink from interviews and hard questions, including sharp ones from their caucus colleagues.
What would happen if they convened a news conference and told the whole story? Do they think they would be led away in handcuffs?
And here is CTV's Joyce Napier suggesting it's time to stop playing games.
I'm sure we'll soon find out why the dynamic duo were playing this game.
But the high school slumber party is over.
And it's time to put the fake scandal to bed...
