CTV won’t get my vote

October -16 -08
Dear CTV News,
I was reading on the Internet a “Boycott” CTV’s Mike Duffy letter
about some considered injustice committed against the Liberal
candidate Stephane Dion by a CTV News interviewer and posted by a
blogger. I had seen the interview in question, several times
and I know that the interviewer said nothing wrong or misleading to
Mr. Dion with his question and that some are using this to discredit
Mike Duffy and CTV. This “Boycott” letter I came across, whether
actually mailed to CTV or not is unknown to myself. I included it for
your “possible amusement”.
I thought it ridiculous and even so-laughable that I copied and
re-edited it for my own email blog.

Not Another CTV Boycott letter

We continue to give letters. Oh yes we do.

Feel free to utilize it

Here’s mine!

Mr. Duffy,

I wanted to let you know that I think it is very fair of you to
broadcast the out takes of Stephane Dion’s interview with the ATV
journalist that has now been broadcast all over Canada in this
election.’That guy’s’ question was the most fairly worded question I
have ever heard. The grammar was accurate and it is quite
understandable that a man for whom English is a second language and
who has a mild hearing problem may have a harder time understanding
what he was talking about.

The best part of it is that your guy made a verbal agreement to not
air this bit even after the interview was over – and yet you and/or
your organization saw an opportunity to report this.

If there is one thing that this Conservative government has been
wrongly accused of over the past two years it is the lack of respect
for Parliament and of low blow tactics that they have used in their
campaign against Dion’s character – before and during the election.
Who would have thought that a journalist, whose job it is to be fair
and objective and provide us with valuable insights so that we can
vote with our hearts, would provide the lowest blow in the campaign in
order to report the news.

I could go on and on here about the obvious bias Canadian media
continually shows to the mildewed left Party’s and their bizarre
personality cults. But I will close by saying that I will NEVER ever
watch your show without popcorn again and will encourage others to do
the same. Perhaps, if you personally apologize to Stephane Dion and
the Liberal Party for your journalistic transgression I may consider
not watching your show again but somehow I doubt that should ever
happen.
