As I'm sure you know, I have long complained about the growing influence of our ratty Con media, and the way it has helped turn our politics into a sewer, ever more grubby, ever more American.
It hasn't been easy trying to convince people that the way our shabby media speaks with one right-wing voice threatens our democracy.
A lot of people can't see the forest for the trees. And even some of my friends believed that I was exaggerating.
But not any longer.
For in the heat of the pandemic, the mask has fallen off the right-wing media.
And after bombarding us with a million one-sided stories on the WE fake scandal, the grotesque Con bias in this story is only too obvious.
Not only is it a drive-by smear on an innocent couple, and a crass attempt to get at Justin Trudeau again.
It buries the fact that Telford behaved in a most honourable manner.
This story brings "scandal journalism" to a new low.— Bryan Leblanc (@bryan_leblanc) August 8, 2020
Telford asked for guidance from the Ethics Commissioner, who advised that she did not have to implement any additional compliance measures.
But she implemented a screen anyway.

Which is not just disgraceful, it's also scary, because it makes a scandal out of nothing, in the middle of a pandemic.
As well as being a travesty of justice.But that's what the Cons and their shabby media have done to Canada.
And so is this...
And when is enough ENOUGH?
The way our shabby shuffling media speaks with one right-wing voice is nothing less than a totalitarian threat to our democracy. But the decent people of this country can also speak with one voice. By boycotting them until they scream for mercy. #cdnpoli— 🇨🇦 Simon 🏴 🌈🏂 (@montrealsimon) August 8, 2020
It's time to fight back against the ratty Con media...
And teach it a lesson it will never forget.
The media needs to mend its ways and better reflect this country, which is mostly centre-left not right-wing.
And we deserve better...
