During the 2008 election, in a televised debate, Stephane Dion called Stephen Harper a liar. Dion claimed Harper was lying about the economy. The press, rather than taking Harper to task, ridiculed Dion for accusing the PM of being a liar.
A month after the election, Dion continued his assault on the PM. The press? They sat by and watched.
Speaking of Assholes in the Press:
At any rate, the former leader of the Liberal Party of Canada did NOT lie to the Canadian people, he WARNED them. And the MSM should all give their heads a shake for what they did to that poor fellow.
