Liberal Senator lies in her complaints about CTV

When you're an "Honourable Senator" who's accusing CTV reporter Robert Fife of getting his facts wrong and showing bias, you'd think it would be important not to lie.

Apparently, Liberal Senator CĂ©line Hervieux-Payette disagrees... because she's repeated several bold faced lies on her blog regarding her complaint to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters and the Radio Television News Directors Association of Canada.

Read her own words from her blog for yourself...
"We are dealing with a Conservative government that manipulates the Canadian public by putting its party's logo on government cheques, models the symbols used by our Olympic athletes on its own logo, sweeps reports on torture in Afghanistan under the carpet and conducts misleading advertising campaigns... and CTV is paid to broadcast these schemes"
Really, Senator Hervieux-Payette? Let's go over the facts...

Blatant Lie #1 - Ms. Hervieux-Payette should know full well that it was TWO CPC MP's who put Party logos on "government cheques", not the Conservative government.

Blatant Lie #2 - The Hon. Senator should know full well that the Conservative government had nothing to do with the Olympic logo. From the Ottawa Citizen: Canadian Olympic Committee spokeswoman Isabelle Hodge said no government officials were involved with the logo's design. "None whatsoever," she said. "There's absolutely no connection whatsoever, with the logo we unveiled and any political logo." Unless, of course, the Hon. Senator is calling the members of the Canadian Olympic Committee liars.

Blatant Lie #3 - That the government has "swept" anything under the rug on the Afghan file. The issues were dealt with when they came to light... full stop. The Senator should talk to General Rick Hillier on this one. (and don't bother with the talking points on this one Liberals... I won't post comments on this non-issue. That being said, legit and substantive contributions on this issue will be considered for posting)

Blatant Lie #4 - That the government is conducting a "misleading advertising campaign". It's the government's JOB to make sure Canadians are informed about government programs... I seem to recall various Liberal launched ads about various programs during their tenure at the helm, ads which grated on me because they were directly linked to clearly partisan "programs". Besides... when Liberal MP's aren't doing their jobs, deliberately not telling their constituents about various government programs, the government has to find a way to make up the slack. (oh yes, Liberal MP's, we noticed this one... and yes, it WILL come back to haunt you)

Based on the blatantly partisan contents of her own letter, her complaint should be thrown right out the window. I guess it shows how desperate the Liberals are... they're having to make it up as they go along.

Here's the question though... did she write her complaint on the taxpayer's dime? Considering the fact that it's on her official Senatorial letterhead, I'd say that's a yes.

    It would be nice if there were some comments on her Blog, correcting her.
    Maybe the fear of disagreeing with her and her, having access to a persons full name, has frightened people off.

    Btw, a "Government Cheque" is not a non negotiable, cardboard prop as is the 'tender' that the logo was attached too.

    Being a Liberal she is expected to lie; and being a Liberal means she is permitted to do so.

    I don't get it, Bob Fife is a wanna-be Liberal Senator in waiting. It's very obvious when he is on TV.
