CBSC:CTV Mike Duffy Live violated CAB Code of Ethics

And because we know that Harper doesn't believe in having a code of ethics, it's absolutely fitting that he should be (cough) interviewed by this disgraced former host of the worse political show Canada had to offer.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is expected to present a rosy picture of his Conservative government's handling of the recession Thursday in a slick made-for-TV presentation designed to forestall a quick summer election.

Nothing like democracy at work huh? Slick? Ugh. How about sleazy, slimy, shifty, sly....

No reporting to the people in the people's House. No sirree, that would be just so...so, accountable. It would be so...oh I don't know, exactly what you would expect the government to do, rather than a political party that after 3 years still doesn't get that they are meant to represent all of us!

The funniest part to me is that Duffy is doing a 'mock' interview. This is new(s) somehow?

Stay tuned.

Did not Harris do a budget at Magna once?

Eaves actually. It was as we know, a disaster.

knb,
Have been trying to follow your blog at the link posted below but it doesn't seem to be working. It just freezes my computer or just won't connect - & I do have a Facebook acct.

So we can expect Iggy to bring down the government as he promised he would do?
Right?

KNB said...

Dunno cwtf, but if he was asking me...;)

cherniak WTF - ah, Ignatieff can't bring the government down alone and you know it. Just trying to put the knife in daily aren't you.

Why don't you ask Jackie boy and Gilles?

A real leader and more so a "real grown up man" would have the guts to stand up in the House with his update. Why is he afraid. I caught some of it and couldn't continue, because again, Harper is using this opportunity to use taxpayer dollars to campaign and put down and lie about the opposition leader.

Why does Harper do everything on my birthday. Last year, the apology to our native peoples (I still think it was purely a strategy on Harper's part) and now this big phony news event. Hopefully, Harper will be gone on my next birthday - the best present a girl could get.

Joseph said...

Happy Birthday, RuralSandi!

I recommend skipping the faux presser. Cake probably won't sit well with the "Duffster and Harper together again" performance.

KNB said...

Aww, Happy Birthday Sandi!

The 'show' was awful so I hope you missed it.

Enjoy your day and do something special!

KNB said...

LOL, Joseph. Indeed the show was cloying enough without cake.

penlan said...

Happy Birthday Sandi. When you blew out the candles on the cake I hope that wish you wished for your next one comes true! :)

penlan said...

knb, where did you see the Duffster show with Harper? CTV said they weren't going to show it & haven't seen it on CBC.

KNB said...

Really? Well here's a surprise, CTV ran it, so I guess they lied. It was the news arm of the network and the same with CBC.

CBC cut out after the speech, but the Q and A was streamed on line.

I see that you don't complain when I point out illogical and stupid Conservative moves - Only when your Dear Liberals® are concerned...



Why don't you ask Jackie boy and Gilles?

So far, Gilles and Mulcair have been thinking about Canadians over overtly partisan politics...
The BQ really have an advantage at not having to appease everyone...



A real leader and more so a "real grown up man" would have the guts to stand up in the House with his update.

A "real grown up man" would not have issued the taunts at being able to bring down the government... and continue with his little farce...

A "real grown up man" would not have supported what he knew was a bad budget that does not help Canadians - except that Iggy the unelected and the back-room boys want power...


Why is he afraid. I caught some of it and couldn't continue, because again, Harper is using this opportunity to use taxpayer dollars to campaign and put down and lie about the opposition leader.

Cry me a river....

I started to watch it the turned it off....didn't want to ruin my day.

CWTF - you seem to want to be negative and argue all the time. Someone told me you were a Con troll - is that true? Just curious.

Looks like Craig Oliver thinks Duffy is being used by Harper - I wonder why Duffy isn't doing his real job and working in the senate.

Sir Francis said...

I wonder why Duffy isn't doing his real job and working in the senate.

Probably because Duffy forgot how to work at a real job a long time ago.

This is were I'd normally tell you to FU.....

Really.
If you want to know if I'm a Con troll, feel free to read some of my previous posts on Red Tories or even here...

I just think you abhor reality when it when comes to Liberal stupidity...
