I’d say that Sun TV lost credibility in this video clip from March ’12, but they’d have to have credibility to begin with, in order to lose it.
The Sault Star (obviously a Sun affiliate) handily provides one bit of evidence to show the reporter/pundit in the video clip as incorrect about Elections Canada being unaware of illegal robocalls during the May ’11 election. The Star’s usefulness ends there though.
Check out CBC’s report instead.
“The emails show Elections Canada officials discussed putting out a news release to warn voters about the calls.”
Contrary to Sun’s claim that no reporters were aware of illegal robocalls, CBC was among the media to help warn Canadians there were fake Elections Canada phone calls being sent out in parts of the country.
Also, check out the Star’s ridiculously biased poll options:
Will the ‘robocalls’ scandal dent the Tories’ popularity?
[So, given the situation where evidence shows that Elections Canada detected illegal activity conducted by the Conservative Party, and failed to lay charges, the concern should be, “will the Conservatives slip in the polls”?]
In the short term, yes
[In the short term? Short term?? What about the long term, eh? How about de-registering the entire Conservative Party of Canada for running a scam to cheat in the last general election?]
No. The right party won
[Holy crap! The Star actually thinks it’s acceptable to provide a poll option that justifies election fraud, because the “right party won”. So long as your boys win, cheating and law breaking and authoritarianism is okay, eh?]
I don’t know
[Now you do.]
