Why Isn't the MSM On This?

The MSM is all hot and bothered by a couple of students who were forced to leave a Tory rally but why isn't the media on this?
Liberal bubble? supporters couldn't get in to @ rally in QC:      H/T David Akin Twitter 
Here is the column from google translator.
(Quebec) The first passage to Quebec Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff, campaigning was marked by a boondoggle that has angered activists and plunged into the embarrassment of local organizers.
. Happy cheer "their" leader of the LPC and candidates in the region, a dozen Liberal supporters were turned away Tuesday at the doors of the Crossroads Community Charlesbourg. Le ton a monté, selon des témoins. Became heated, according to witnesses.
They had to turn back, their signs under his arm, unable to express their support
Mr. Ignatieff - who has remained in Quebec for a few hours - and the Liberal team. The latest poll puts the PLC Segma to 14% in the polls in Quebec.
. Similarly, a dozen media representatives from Quebec - journalists, cameramen and photographers - were denied access to Carrefour where Mr. Ignatieff met with community groups. . Only journalists who follow the Pan Canadian register. . Lucky few have managed to get through.
. Local organizers of the PLC, unable to justify this approach, hiding their evil malaise, their incomprehension and disapproval... Especially since the leader did not hold a press conference in Quebec City because he had already answered questions earlier in the day ... Newfoundland.
"We made another big [press briefing] tomorrow morning in Compton [Townships], and you're welcome everyone," said Michel Liboiron, chief press secretary.  The refusal to let journalists and local activists was explained by a lack of space inside.  Representatives of community groups have asked to limit the amount of people inside.
"If it's a communication problem, we will try to manage it," said Liboiron.
  Run its course, the organization agreed that the leader answer a few questions from area media.  Liberal candidates in the capital brought about.
The Liberal leader has promised that he would first go back to Quebec by the end of the campaign.  "We do not drop your arms," ​​he assures. We're here to win. "
Why won't the media talk about that incident?  Guess it might be embarrassing for the Liberals.
Here's another one hat tip again to David Akin. If PM Harper were shunned like that, it would make top news for all of the campaign.
My favourite honest moment on the Ignatieff tour happened last week in Winnipeg. Ignatieff had shown up at Kelekis, the famous Winnipeg diner, and the usual crowd of regulars was inside, perhaps unaware the Liberal leader and a horde of journalists were about to upset their lunch break.
Ignatieff gamely went around and introduced himself to the diners. One old gent was having none of Iggy’s friendliness, telling the Liberal leader he was “wasting my money.”
A table full of grumpy old bowlers called the Liberal leader “an a--hole” loudly enough that our reporter travelling with Iggy could clearly hear their displeasure.
Undeterred, Iggy turned to another man. “Come here often?” Ignatieff asked.
“No, and I probably won’t be back now,” the man replied.
Tough crowd. You can almost hear Ignatieff mutter, “Right. I’ll put you down as undecided.”
MSM where are you?  Shame on you!!!  All we ask for is some balance.
For a nice change PM Harper met with ethnic media to answer some real questions.What a difference!  The national media could learn something.

  1. LMAO

    God I miss northend Winnipeg. These people won't pull any punches. Real people, not the fancy-pants, let-me-run-your-life elitists like Ignatieff. I wonder if there's a video of this somewhere?

  2. A lot of soft tosses there for sure but yeah if the press asked about POLICY instead of CAMPAIGN JUNK no one cares about they'd get unlimited questions.

  3. This is a video that all Canadians need to see, great job in getting it posted. I will be posting it on my site and getting it out to as many people as I can, as I said, everyone needs to see a real leader in action.

    I love his line, "You get dollars by creating jobs, not by raising taxes".

    After seeing this, I am now, more than ever, looking forward to seeing Stephen Harper shred the opposition at the debates.


  4. I read the second story about Ignatieff at the diner in a couple newspapers. Ignatieff wished them a good lunch after their remarks and moved on to speak to other diners. I agree other newspapers might have given this a higher profile - as it illustrates how Ignatieff treats those who disagree with him. I think perhaps the reason the papers didn't carry it more is because it made this group of Harper supporters look like not very nice or gracious people. There is no reason to make private citizens look bad, even if they behave a bit poorly.

  5. Mr. 9:25 AM, do you have evidence that these were Harper supporters?

    Personally I don't think they look bad at all. What you're really saying is that they were politically incorrect. Thank goodnes we still have a few bright spots in this country where people can be themselves rather than slaves to political correctness.

  6. What the polling numbers show is an obvious disconnect to what our Harper-hating media is reporting and what is actually happening on the ground.

    Non-stop Harper bashing and his Igness dumps the party platform..... numbers barely move.

    That tells me anyway,that voters are paying very little attention to all the Harper haters BS.

  8. No one's watching because this election is boring as hell and I like politics. The Liberal red book is the same platform as they've been pushing for 20 years and Harper is pushing steady as she goes. So nothing's happening. I just hope the numbers hold or improve and I'm doing my best to help my local candidate in the limited spare time I have.

    Good for you! I hope everyone gets out there and does what they can so that we can win that majority.

  10. Yeah steady as she goes...
    but I wish Harper would put the rally thing to bed
    start picking apart the red book day by day
    tomorrow start with the green shift
    next day cover pharmacare
    next day how the liberals would destroy our military and put our troops in harms way
    turn the spot light on different parts of the red book
    and a Canadian who spent over 30 years outside of Canada knows what average Candadians feel
