Aberhart Would Be Proud

Tory MP Colin Mayes has made retracted comments that journalists who write distorted articles should be thrown in jail.

Paul Jackson better start looking for a good lawyer...


    This should be fun.

    CG, I love your site.

  • Haha! I read about his comments and died laughing. For someone who used to be a mayor, you'd think he'd be a little smoother with the media.

    Yes, the media can distort things, but anyone can. Should they be jailed too? How about Harper when he promised to introduce more ethical ways of doing politics and government, but then having an unelected cabinet minister or allowing two political staffers beome lobbyists?

    Love your site! One of the best!

  • Now we know why Harper wants all his caucus muzzled. He doesn't want Canadians to know the authoritarian measures that the Conservatives want to take if they ever get a majority.

  • Well they should be! I've had enough of LIEberal propaganda, thank you very much!

    What a breath of fresh air!

  • Jim,
    Have you been reading the press coverage that King Ralph has received over the years. All positive from the conservative press in Alberta. Where else can you show up drunk and throw coins at homeless people, make fun at people with physical and mental capabilities and throw an object at a person among just a few of things that the King has done and not be taken to task by the press or your own party. So don'y talk about the Lieberal press it goes both ways. In fact the press in Alberta is worse in its support for the conservative parties.

    The problem with the MP's comments is that it does talk to the real issue of state control of our media. That only happens in authoritarian states. Take your head out of your ass and understand the reality of the comments.

  • Come on.. No serious person uses terms like 'LIEberals'. Ditto for 'Harpocrytes' (in case anyone wishes to accuse me of partisanship). These insults sound like something a junior high student might come up with.

    As for the discussion topic itself, I give Harper kudos for excluding this dumbass from cabinet, but I take those kudos away for the PMO's paranoid approach to media relations. There is a line between getting your message out and adopting a bunker mentality, and the PMO is close to crossing that line.

  • Colin Mayes seems to want to take it back to the good old days; maybe we should and publicly horsewhip him!

  • Okay, if you guys misconstrue a sarcastic post CLEARLY LABELLED "snark", then you need to think twice about saying that other people have their heads in their ass.
