Gloria Galloway Watch VII

Gloria strikes again!

A big story happens about a 19+ year veteran Liberal MP, a guy who was recruited by John Turner, and the second floor crosser to have served in Paul Martin's Cabinet, joining Stephen Harper's Conservative Party, and how does Gloria headline it?

"Liberal dissident denies Harper bought his loyalty". Come on Gloria... taking a biased pot-shot at Mr. Harper, instead of covering the news... how about "Veteran Liberal MP Joins Tories", or "Longtime Liberal Turfed by Dion Joins Tories", or "Harper wins another disillusioned Liberal MP", or "Liberal recruited by John Turner joins Conservatives".

Nope... you had to take the low road. Instead of just reporting the news, you had to score a blow against the Conservatives. Well, you scored alright... another point on the "Gloria Watch" scoreboard...

Negative - 7 (+1)
Positive/Netural - 3

    The problem with the press is that they think that they are smarter than anyone else. As a result they make news rather than report it. They are biased against all elected officials because they think that they would do the job better, but they don't have the guts to run in an election.

    I have come to expect this of the good Gloria.

    She's biased because she has a vested interest in seeing liberals promoted over the conservatives..perhaps she sees her senate appointment setting sail, and heading towards the setting sun..

    Whoa - the neverending paranoia called conservatives.

    Rumour had it that there was a promise - she clarified that there wasn't.

    Yawn - you dig so hard to rant about something insignificant it's so, so sad.

    If anything the guy who is 74 years ago wants to leave a legacy - the cancer research centre - duh!

    If you're going to keep a tally on Galloway stories, you've got to cover them all.

    Gloria covered this story yesterday, after the news broke. Her headline reads: "Harper welcomes dissident Grit into the fold".

    The story you cited is a legitimate news piece. When floor crossings like this happen, I would hope that our news media keep an eye on "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" things.

    This was a decent article, and there's nothing really to get upset about here. If you can't handle criticism or close analysis, politics isn't for you.

    Dispite contrary belief, I don't have time to just sit around and read news articles all day. ;-) I just read the ones that come my way.

    Thanks for the heads up Dirk, I'll look that one up and try to score it accordingly.
