Sue-Ann Levy destroys her career in Tweets

Tweet

I’m joking of course. Sue-Ann Levy is employed by Lorrie Goldstein and Sun Media. Nobody gets fired over at that outfit. Ezra Levant regularly has to apologize for his blatant racism and lies. But he still resides on the Sun News Network throne. Let’s face it – the right is a no-pink-slip zone.

Justin Trudeau’s “great hair” – Toronto Sun’s independent thinkers dutifully recite Con talking points

Tweet

Justin Trudeau humiliated Sun Media by knocking the shit out of a Conservative Senator, broadcast live on Sun News Network in front of taunting and eventually stunned TV hosts and an even more stunned Conservative audience.

Justin is the son of the most hated Liberal and one of Canada’s most popular PM’s ever. . . . → Read More: Justin Trudeau’s “great hair” – Toronto Sun’s independent thinkers dutifully recite Con talking points

Postmedia: Don’t cry for us, Canada. We publish creeps like Michael Den Tandt.

Tweet

I tried to force a tear for Postmedia’s Ottawa bureau cuts but I just can’t bring myself to feel anything for the Conservative media outlet but reserved scorn. Like the Globe & Mail’s consideration of using a paywall, Postmedia is searching in vain for answers to the boogeyman in the room, social media, . . . → Read More: Postmedia: Don’t cry for us, Canada.

David Akin sent to the showers

Tweet

Another casualty of the Sun News family has been taken out of the line-up. Akin-fans can at least take some solace in that the former host of ‘Daily Brief’ will continue on the network as occasional guest.

Akin can also console himself in the fact that his reputation will be less sullied now . . . → Read More: David Akin sent to the showers

Operation Maple takes on Globe & Mail. Number 6 in Gang of Seven.

Tweet

Operation Maple has been doing a yeoman’s job in pointing out the main pillars of Canada’s Conservative media monopoly. So far OM has grappled with the following behemoths of industry:

What Gregor Robertson’s win means to the right wing: “Vancouverites are now raising sheep and growing corn in their backyards”

Tweet

You know how right wingers love to predict the end of the world if a non-conservative is elected? Republican presidential contenders in the States are conjuring death panels, rampant socialism if not communism (or is it fascism – the right can’t seem to make up its mind), gay parents raping their . . . → Read More: What Gregor Robertson’s win means to the right wing: “Vancouverites are now raising sheep and growing corn in their backyards”

How can opposition battle Harper’s War Against Information when there’s no battle plan?

Tweet

HillTimes:

There are an estimated 1,500 communications staffers working in ministers’ offices and departments, including 87 in the PMO and PCO.

(And don’t forget Sun Media, Postmedia, editorial board at Globe & Mail and 90 percent of the media.)

Soon after Mr. Harper won power, the Prime Minister’s staff started deciding . . . → Read More: How can opposition battle Harper’s War Against Information when there’s no battle plan?

Poor Pierre Karl Peladeau. Playing the victim again. Paranoid, too.

Tweet

Most likely spurred by the facts presented by the CBC about Quebecor’s welfare habit, the media chain’s chief came out firing today against the ‘state broadcaster’. Problem is, Peladeau came off wimpy and whiny, somehow befitting a news chain known for its self victimization and pouting. Not only that, there was a whiff of paranoia . . . → Read More: Poor Pierre Karl Peladeau. Playing the victim again. Paranoid, too.

Kevin O’Leary under fire for hatchet job on Chris Hedges. Sun Media rides to the rescue

Tweet

You won’t find the Sun tabloid chain – no stranger to hatchet jobs – siding with the ‘state broadcaster’ often. But when it comes to the Bill O’Reilly attack dog of the CBC, Sun can make an exception.

(I’m pretty sure Sun has also recently deified Don Cherry in light of the flack he’s . . . → Read More: Kevin O’Leary under fire for hatchet job on Chris Hedges. Sun Media rides to the rescue

Another step down the Conservative evolutionary scale. Sun runs homophobic McVety ad. Bonus Shaidle charm offensive.

Tweet

Conservatives have a very well defined hierarchy of idiocy. The National Post is about midway down the pack, excelling at Disingenuous, Lacks Moral Clarity and Will Do Anything to Further a Conservative Meme. Not to mention the bottom of the pack for Empathy.

Then you have Sun Media. It’s right there in the basement, . . . → Read More: Another step down the Conservative evolutionary scale. Sun runs homophobic McVety ad. Bonus Shaidle charm offensive.

Ontarians, Are You Getting a Sense of Deja-Vu?

Tweet

It seems that Timmy Hudak is pulling a Stevie Spiteful. When in doubt, bring out the evul coalition bogey man!

Speaking at a Toronto hockey arena, Mr. Hudak repeatedly lumped the other two parties together and suggested any alliance would inevitably lead to higher taxes in the province. He said such a coalition . . . → Read More: Ontarians, Are You Getting a Sense of Deja-Vu?

And Now, Introducing the Witness for The Harpercon Prosecution, Fox News North!

Tweet

Boys ‘n’ girls, the Harpercons want to hold a parliamentary hearing regarding the future of the CBC, basically. And  guess who their star witnesses will be? Yup! You guessed it! Pierre-Karl Peladeau, Ezzy Levant, and of course, king McCarthyist of the CBC watch, Brian Lilley-white.  Oh yeah!

Two powerful Star columns on Islamophobia. The new anti-Semitism. Tactics of Islamophobes.

Tweet

Haroon Siddiqui hits these columns out of the park. Much needed to be said but our media has been reluctant to shout out the obvious.

Just as the Muslim world turned against the U.S. and Europe, Americans and Europeans turned against Muslims, including their own minorities, nearly half of . . . → Read More: Two powerful Star columns on Islamophobia. The new anti-Semitism. Tactics of Islamophobes.

Editors of Sun Media Would Like To Rename Labour Day–After a Union Buster–Quelle Surprise!

Tweet

Well, Boys ‘n’ girls, you had to know that was coming.  The editors don’t like unions or the working class for that matter.  In fact, they sooo despise them, that they appear to want to rename Labour Day–after–get for it–George Brown, a union buster hisself.

Oh Mr. Nicholls! I Do Believe Your Freudian Slip is Showing!

Oh, Mr. Gerry Nicholls, what have you done? 

 Do you live or work in an Ivory Tory, completely isolated from any sense of reality?

I know I don’t live in an Ivory Tory, but perhaps you do? And so do most of those living in the Sun Media Batcave and their readers it . . . → Read More: Oh Mr. Nicholls! I Do Believe Your Freudian Slip is Showing!

Fox News North In Trouble–Again!

Tweet

First, Remember this?

If you don’t care to view all of it, it was basically Krista Erikson in her best Harper blue dress berating Montreal dancer and long time cultural icon, Margie Gillis on her Fox News North show.  How she would flail her arms, basically mocking dancers, twist Ms. Gillis’ words . . . → Read More: Fox News North In Trouble–Again!

I Wonder if The Grope & Fail Editorial’s Glowing Endorsement of Stevie Spiteful Will Get Them Back in Sun Media’s Good Graces?

Tweet

Remember not that long ago how Sun Media’s editorialists were whining, almost taunting the Grope and Fail about them no longer being Conservative?  Well, this endorsement (more like ass-kissing)  from the Grope & Fail’s editorialists, for Stevie oh so dreamy should put poor Sun Media’s editorialist’s minds right at ease!

Sun Media Frets The Sun Don’t Shine Anymore at The Globe

Tweet

It really appears to be a preoccupation with Sun Media’s editors today.

If the Globe and Mail were a mere child, rather than just old, venerable and haughty, we’d be tempted to issue an Amber Alert.

The poor soul has gone missing.

It has either lost its way or gone dotty.
