    Reporters Called 'Lying Pieces Of Sh*t' At Tory Campaign Event, Spokesperson Apologizes

    Reporters Called 'Lying Pieces Of Sh*t' At Tory Campaign Event, Spokesperson Apologizes


    Reporters attempting to grill Stephen Harper about the Wright-Duffy affair were heckled and later called "lying pieces of shit" by a supporter at a Conservative Party event in Toronto on Tuesday.

    Top Tory campaign spokesman Kory Teneycke has already apologized to the journalists for the "unacceptable" behaviour.

    CBC News' Hannah Thibedeau, a veteran journalist covering the Tory campaign, is among those who have asked a number of tough questions lately about Harper's office, his chief of staff Ray Novak, and Nigel Wright's $90,000 cheque to Mike Duffy.

    It will be interesting to see how much coverage this gets vs. the vile tweets of a Liberal candidate from Alberta that an Israeli supporters mother should have aborted him with a coat hanger, among others.

    And considering Trudeau called Peter Kent a lying piece of shit IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS a few years ago.

    What will the media cover more?

    The comments of a CPC supporter or the comments of a Liberal CANDIDATE???

    We all know the answer already.

    Apologize for the behaviour? Perhaps, but never say sorry for speaking the truth.

    CBC wrote this up on their site as well. Gee CBC what a story! Gosh those conservative supporters sure are mean, just like mean old Harper himself. Seriously though, since when is a heckler news? Oh wait I know, when the CBC reporter belongs to a guild registered with Elections Canada as a third party campaigner.

    since all of these reporters belong to the guild that is registered as a third party campaigner should that in itself bar them from attending CPC events?

    CBCNN:

    Liberal CANDIDATE comments - 3 minutes

    CPC SUPPORTER comments - 9 minutes.

    No surprise.

    I read a t-shirt once that said: I don't insult people, I describe them.

    That's not truth - it's just an insult. well deserved perhaps, but nonetheless. And it failed to help the cause he professes to care about, that's for sure. Now the image of CPC supporters being plastered all over the news is the literal angry old man shouting obscenities.

    Does he feel better for having 'beaten his chest' a little while hurting the cpc? Reminds me of these "no compromise" idiots who think screaming at people is a good way to change the world.
