Montreal Simon: The Day the Con Media Ended Up Looking Like Idiots

As I'm sure you know, I have absolutely no respect for most of the Parliamentary press gang. They are incredibly mediocre, gratingly provincial, almost entirely dedicated to trying to return the Cons to power, to satisfy their corporate masters. And their coverage of Justin Trudeau's visit to India, from their perches in drab downtown Ottawa, couldn't ...

Montreal Simon: Is This Why The Con Media Hates Justin Trudeau So Much?

As you know, I've often wondered why the Con media is so biased against Justin Trudeau, and hates him so much.I've blamed that bias on shameless scribblers trying to please their corporate bosses, who are furious with Trudeau for raising their taxes. I've wondered whether our dilapidated media are being secretly propped up by uber right-wing ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the Angry Old Men in the Con Media

It's been almost two weeks since Andrew Scheer came rushing out to denounce Justin Trudeau for imposing un-Godly restrictions on the government's summer job program.But since then Scheer has been strangely silent about the issue, and has dropped it like a hot or hellish potato. Which is weird, considering he's a religious fanatic who would love ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Media and the Religious Fanatics Go After Justin Trudeau

Montreal Simon: The Con Media and the Conapocalypse

It was Rosemary Con Barton's last At Issue panel of the year, and as usual it was a horror show.The ghastly Con conclave declared Pierre Poilievre to be the politician of the year for smearing Bill Morneau as only he could. Yes, that Pierre Poilievre.Then to make matters even more obscene, Con Barton did solemnly declare that the ...

Montreal Simon: How The Con Media Is Trying To Praise Andrew Scheer

As I wrote the other day, the Con media is finding it harder and harder to attack Justin Trudeau, because they've been doing it for so long nobody is paying them much attention.And they're withering on the vine, or just withering. So now they're trying something different. They're trying to make the creepy religious fanatic Andrew Scheer ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Media’s Pornographic Assault On Our Democracy

I think by now you probably know what I think about our grubby Con media, and how much they disgust me.You know what I thought about them during Stephen Harper's monstrous decade in power, when they fell over themselves trying to polish his behind, or blow his tiny trumpet.And I'm sure you also know what ...

Montreal Simon: Mary Dawson and the Con Smearing of Justin Trudeau

Ever since she ruled that Justin Trudeau had violated ethical guidelines, Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson has become the darling of the Con media.After attacking her for months they now swoon at her feet, and accept her ruling without question.But I believe that ruling is hideously flawed, especially on the key question of whether the Aga ...

Montreal Simon: The Day Andrew Scheer’s Creepy Smile Fell Off

There is something very disturbing about this picture of Andrew Scheer, taken on the last day before Parliament adjourned for the holidays.As he stares at Justin Trudeau with his creepy smile missing, and a strange almost crazed look in his eyes.But then who can blame him? He attacked Trudeau like a rabid beast for months. He blew ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer’s Long Night of Humiliation

As you know Andrew Scheer has been looking a little desperate recently. And who can blame him?Ever since he became leader of the Harper Party he has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at Justin Trudeau. He has all but called Trudeau a crook, and a traitor. He has accused him of being soft on ISIS. He ...

Montreal Simon: Is the CBC Becoming Even More Con?

If you're a progressive in Canada, this is the kind of CBC News panel that can really ruin your day.  Old, grim, predictable, boring, and as Con as they come. And like all the other CBC News panels and opinion pages, so totally biased the people's network might as well be a branch of the ...

Montreal Simon: Has Rex Murphy Finally Left the CBC?

For years I have tried to avoid watching the CBC National on Thursdays so as to avoid the At Issue panel.For it was always a Con clown show under Big Daddy Mansbridge, and judging from what I've seen so far, will remain that way under the very Con-friendly Rosemary Barton.A horror show of dead pundits ...

Montreal Simon: Is Andrew Scheer the New Jason Kenney?

When we last left Andrew Scheer he was walking through a quiet suburb looking like a dazed Forrest Gump, or a weirdo trying to pick up women.And now we know what the ad produced by his new Mini-Me, Hamish Marshall, the nasty little man who used to work for the hate mongering Rebel, is supposed to ...

Montreal Simon: Justin Trudeau and the Con Media Losers

It's now been more than four days since Justin Trudeau missed a meeting of APEC leaders, and our Con media went ballistic.Claiming he'd sabotaged a trade deal, and that all the other leaders were furious, and that Canada's reputation was RUINED!!!!And nobody was more outraged than the pompous hack from the National Post Andrew Coyne. ...

Montreal Simon: Why Does The Con Media Hate Justin Trudeau So Much?

Well it's now been two days since the Con media went after Justin Trudeau for allegedly sabotaging a trade deal by missing a meeting. In what can only be described as a pig wrestling contest. Which as you know ended badly, with our porky media looking like idiots.  Since they revealed their blatant bias, and ...

Montreal Simon: How The Con Media Were Made To Look Like Idiots

Remembrance Day is always a sad day, but it was a particularly gloomy day at the Parliamentary Press Gallery.Yesterday they were squealing like hogs, accusing Justin Trudeau of having sabotaged a trade deal by missing a meeting.And along with the creepy Andrew Schmear all but demanding that Trudeau resign IMMEDIATELY !!!! But sadly for them, ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the Millennials Who Will Destroy Him

Even though I despise Andrew Scheer with every bone in my body, I can't help feeling a little bit sorry for him. For every day he sets out to smear or schmear Justin Trudeau, and lie like a thief… Justin Trudeau’s wealthy friends pay less, while he hikes taxes on 81% of middle class Canadian families. Trudeau’s ...

Montreal Simon: The Sad Rise and Fall of the Con Dickhead Pierre Poilievre

For weeks Pierre Poilievre has been enjoying his moment in the spotlight again, attacking the Liberals as only the man known as Pee Wee or Dickhead can.While our shabby Con media licked and sucked him like a lollipop.And he must have felt like he was back in the good old days… But then on Friday ...

Montreal Simon: Why The Con Media Failed To Bring Down Justin Trudeau

It was one of the most disgusting political spectacles I have ever witnessed. A bully show if ever there was one.The ratty con media ganging up on Justin Trudeau and demanding that he serve the decent Bill Morneau on a bun, with a big piece of cheeseTo the great joy of Andrew Scheer and his grubby ...

Montreal Simon: The CBC’s War On The Liberals (Continued)

Yesterday I wrote a post about the CBC's frenzied attempts to try to bring down the Trudeau government, and make the sinister religious fanatic Andrew Scheer Prime Minister.And how in pursuit of that goal it seems to have sacrificed its principles and its sanity. And I was pleasantly surprised to see how many people agreed with me ...

Montreal Simon: Bill Morneau and the Monstrous Assault of the Con Media

For weeks Bill Morneau has been under an all out assault by the Cons and the Con media.For having made a couple of rookie political mistakes, the decent Morneau has been smeared as a crook by scumbags like Pierre Poilievre.Even though there is absolutely no evidence that he has done anything wrong.And even though he ...

Montreal Simon: John Ibbitson’s Obscene Ode to Andrew Scheer

I realize that the Globe writer John Ibbitson has written some rotten columns before, most of them in praise of Stephen Harper.And I realize he works for a newspaper that somehow managed to endorse the Cons, if not Harper, in the last election.Which was of course somewhere between absurdity, and insanity.And after the way Harper and his ...

Montreal Simon: When Progressives Shoot Themselves In The Foot

As you may know, one of the things that drives me wild is to see progressives attacking each other, instead of the real enemy.Only to end up shooting themselves in the foot.I've seen what that has done in Canada, and how it gave us ten years of Stephen Harper.And more recently I've seen how it helped ...
