Scrimshaw notes that Global didn't even cover the story themselves in their weekend show:
Boom. Rob Benzie’s comments on @ctvqp this morning regarding recent media coverage of the Chinese foreign interference story: pic.twitter.com/z2EGS17Vi4— Greg MacEachern (@gmacofglebe) March 26, 2023
So, Global didn’t repeat their accusation about Han Dong on The West Block this morning? They broke the political story of the week and didn’t cover it on their own show?— Evan Scrimshaw (@EScrimshaw) March 26, 2023
That’s very odd
On Monday, Han Dong was fighting hard:
The tide is going back out. It's fucking hilarious to watch pundits, competing media and conservatives alike begin to back down on Han Dong because of reckless reporting by Global News.— Raoul Duke's Salt Shaker (@RodKahx) March 26, 2023
And Global is ducking:
Please see my statement below. pic.twitter.com/7NgcDKSaXy— Han Dong (@handongontario) March 27, 2023
UH OH - Global News releases a statement in response to a potential lawsuit by Han Dong— G.T. Lem 林 家 聰 (@gtlem) March 27, 2023
It does NOT say "We stand by our Story"
Nor does it say "We will defend ourselves in court"
Instead the statement is a NON-ANSWER that is so generic & vague that it's NOT an answer at all pic.twitter.com/j3R3w8YLCu
So are the Opposition parties:
Things this statement by Global doesn’t include:— Evan Scrimshaw (@EScrimshaw) March 27, 2023
• A defence of their story
• A defence of Sam Cooper
• Anything to make anyone believe anything other than they shit the bed pic.twitter.com/4b2yep4RFp
Can you hear that squeaking noise? It's the sound of the CPC hitting the brakes! I wonder if Sam Cooper will fall hard and will be their sacrificial lamb! https://t.co/BPPtLNLU72— Antonio Foix 🇮🇹🇨🇦🏳️🌈 (@Aho2ToMan) March 25, 2023
Things CPC didn't seem interested in for QP today: Chinese interference, Biden visit, # of women in the Trudeau Cabinet, unvaccinated visiting the US, Roxham Road.— Bruce Anderson (@bruceanderson) March 27, 2023
Choices made in prepping QP are the product of strategy to pick winning themes, avoid losers.
