CTV assumes incorrectly... again

CTV made the following statement today in one of their stories:
"The websites listed at www.bloggingtories.ca have no official ties to the Conservative government.

But in recent weeks, the sites have run the same media talking points as those issued by senior officials in government.

And they have mounted fierce public-relations campaigns against government programs that later wound up being axed or downsized, including the Court Challenges Program - a fund that paid for legal challenges that won new rights for women, minorities, the disabled, and gays and lesbians since the 1970s."
Amm, nice try guys... once again trying to expose a non-existant connection between the Blogging Tories, and the Conservative Party of Canada.

For those of you at CTV who read the Blogging Tories blogs, such as this one, I have an official statement to make:
CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE DENIES ANY LINKS TO THE GOVERNMENT
October 20, 2006

Staff at CTV today accused the author of this website, along with many others, of being unofficial arms of the Conservative Party of Canada... once again digging up false accusations made against us during the last election, stating that we and the Conservative Party of Canada are acting contrary to provisions regarding third party entities in the Elections Act.

Once again, and for the official record, I don't get talking points from anyone inside Canada's New Government. The views expressed here are my own... unless otherwise sourced and credited.

Though I am an active and card-carrying member of the Conservative Party of Canada, I only get the same information that any member of the public is privy to... and not any non-publicized information that members of Canada's New Government are Privy to.

But thanks for coming out anyway.
(and if you caught the pun, you must be a political junkie...)

    Notice how they try and insinuate we are against women's rights, minorities etc...

    Perhaps we're only against ivory tower lawyers being paid by the government to pursue their agendas and no-one else's, without any supervision. Once again congrats to the Tories for not using the CCP for their own agenda.

    It's from the Canadian Press. An with the CTV.ca News staff at the helm of course it's going to have an anti-conservative and pro-liberal left-wing stance.

    I'll second that langmann. This just proves the LWM is out to get us. We must be making some noise.
    On the CTV website, I noticed an ad
    for Canadians who miss the daily CTV newscast. So it says, check out the CTV website to keep up to date. Typical, just like the newspapers are suffering, so to are
    the TV media. I'd like nothing more
    then to see CTV put out of it's misery.

    Wow - so much paranoia on the right these days...

    I guess it's understandable, considering your two best hopes for a NEW CON WORLD - George W. Bush and Stephen W. Harper - have turned out to be pathetic duds.

    I wouldn't pay much attention to ronin. He just called us all "moron bloogers" at Canadianna's place.

    Speaking of CTV...just wondering if anyone caught the 'news story' last night re: Franklin Graham being in Winnipeg. The ctv reporter pulled a Rosie O'Donnell...she compared Graham being allowed to speak in Canada but an Islamic extremist was banned...and that Graham has called Islam an 'evil religion'. She also took it upon herself to let us here in la la land know that 'if Graham makes a statement like that in Canada he could be charged with a hate crime.'
    What we do without MSM keeping us so well informed?
    Also since this is all about poor Belinda: if she claims to stand up for equality why didn't she mention ALL the degrading insults in the House fo Commons toward men and women? Belinda stands up for Belinda only. Duffy sans Duffy had Stronach, Georgis and Chow on...Georgis ponted out the hypocrisy and of course Taber skimmed right over it.
