I was just wondering if anyone else out there picks up on cases of subtle bias in the MSM against conservatives.

You know, things such as how they start out stories about cpc government legislation with critic's reaction, and started out lpc govermnet legislation stories with how it'll benefit Canadians. Stuff like that.

If you do, please post some examples of this.

Here's one

It wouldn't be the first time that the foreign minister compared his ex-girlfriend to a canine.


Our good friends at CTV have suggested that MacKay has done this previously.. Of course, when you read through the article they fail to explain how - only mentioning the pictures of him taken with the neighbours dog.. Subtle, because it makes him look vengeful, although I don't think there is evidence to support that.

They also don't mention the comment Stronach made about Harper in regards to Viagra.

Hm...its okay to make jokes about the Prime Ministers genitals but don't dare imply that she is a dog!

Hey, Biggie is just carrying on a fine tradition of sexual innuendo. "Hugh Jorgan", "cunning linguist", calling a place and asking them to page "Mike Hunt", our culture is full of subtle and not so subtle references to the genitals, and the act. And hey, who doesn't like some innuendo now and then?

When Stronach crossed the floor, MacKay was quoted saying in a scrum that;

Quote:
In May 2005, after his split with Stronach, a dejected MacKay told reporters: "I'm going to go home and maybe walk my dog. Dogs are loyal."

They've played the clip a handful of times in the past few days. This is likely what they're referring to - in other words, a real stretch.

Real stretch is right!

I think he needs to make up his mind, first he says she isn't a dog, now she is? what gives? 8)
