Pathetic. That's why I stick with National Newswatch.

I thought that headline was a little curious too. I thought I read something not long ago about an accusation of Bourque.com being a Conservative site???

Patty said...

I read that also and thought it was a tad strange. Didn't I read somewhere recently of someone accusing Bourque of being too Conservative?

Maybe you're thinking of this story of a few weeks ago:

"Headlines on popular Internet news sites can be bought for a price"

I've noticed for a while a lot of Ontario Liberal friendly headlines on Bourque. Kinsella whined for a while that it is bad politics for the Federal Conservatives to pay for headlines as that would come back to haunt them someday.

But it seems his good friend and client Dalton does not share the same reservations.

It's not only strange but if you've seen the election ads, they're not really that great at all.

Lots of hype over....nothing much at all. Typical Liberal spin.

Peter - isn't Kinsella working for McGuinty this election?

peter said...

I believe Warren is a consultant for McGuinty. If not formally retained, they are clearly pretty tight. That McGuinty is plainly doing the same things Kinsella was grousing about the Conservative doing a couple of weeks ago (though not lately, I note) is, I dunno ... interesting.

Bourque has in the past been a fill-in host on local News Talk Radio- never took him to be small 'c' conservative let alone large 'C'. Also, in the online banner to this item, he left the 'e' out of 'awesome'.

Attaboy, MadMacs, get him for that typo !
