We must fight this hailstorm of praise!
CPC appeals to party supporters to finance fight against media, pundits
With a stable majority government for the next four years and the Liberal Party still reeling from the election results, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party is calling on supporters to dip into their wallets to help the party counter a new foe.
In a letter sent out in the past few days, Conservative Party President John Walsh is urging supporters to help the party counter a “hailstorm” of negative attacks from the media, pundits and the “opinion elite.”
Walsh says the party had to fight off attacks during the last election and expects them to continue.
“During this election campaign, we faced an onslaught of negative attacks like never before from the media, from pundits and from anti-Conservative lobby groups and union executives,” Walsh wrote in a copy of the letter obtained by iPolitics.
For those who may not remember all of the nasty things the opinion elites said about the Conservatives during the election, feel free to browse the editorial endorsements from the 31 (out of 34) media organizations who endorsed the Tories.
