CTV Panicking!!!

About the "attack ads" - CTV.ca first poll on this stated: (see screen capture)

The Conservatives are planning to release adds attacking Stephen Dion. Is the campaign valid?
Yes, the media has given Dion an easy ride.
No, the ads are a desperate ploy to label Dion.


Now that poll question has been quickly removed from existence (note that it does not show up in the list of past questions --- click results and see for yourself) and replaced with:

The Conservatives are planning to release some new partisan TV ads. Do you think it’s too early for such a campaign?
Yes, ad campaigns should only be launched during an election campaign
No, it’s never too soon


I guess they got the original poll up before they received the Liberal Party Talking Points. Of course, they did not want to see what people really think about the easy ride Dion is getting!

Great catch, I missed that one. However, the CPC has to be careful with these ads

And here is CTV.ca's "news" story on the subject...

------------------------

In 2002, the Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservative parties, the forerunners of the Conservative party, voted against ratification of the Kyoto Accord, the global treaty designed to fight dangerous climate change.

Dion, who became Liberal leader in early December, was environment minister starting in 2004. In April 2005, he delivered the Liberal government's $10-billion climate change plan.

The Conservatives dismantled it but have since resurrected parts.

"I mean, they have done nothing on the environment in over a year. Now they are busy stealing all the green clothing off the Liberal clothesline," Deputy Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff told CTV's Question Period on Sunday.

------------------------------

Unbelievable. I bet these people actually wear Liberal shirts at work.

Dumb of Tories to run such ads. They will drop 5 points in next poll. Canadians hate this stuff. Kenney should be fired.

The Globe and Mail has a dubious habit of changing their "news" reports on their website without notice with time/date stamps, so it is not surprising that CTV, another corporation controlled by the same liberal mothercorp Bell Globemedia follows the same tactics.

News reports can change on the fly depending on the feedback, and there is no documentation to the audience of editorial changes that may happen seemingly at any time.

This might make the reader or viewer wonder about the integrity of the "news" they post.
