The Duffy Carnival

April 8, 2015 |

duffy carnivalDay 1 of the Carnival, is now behind us.

The scene outside of the downtown Ottawa Courthouse was, to say the least, disconcerting.

I understand that there has been a lot of hype leading up to this court date.  I think that is where I have the biggest problem with the whole thing.  The hype.

There have been certain news reporting amigos, who have used their position in the media, to give this story far more attention than it deserves. For those newscasters, I’m going to dare say it – they’ve made it personal.  They’ve injected their personal feelings for Mike Duffy into the story.  To me, it’s a gross abuse of their position.  Being on a national network, using it to play “gotchya” games against ex-friends is downright unprofessional.

As a result, the public has been force fed this story day after day, in a way that is quite reminiscent of a full-fledged witch hunt.

Day One down.  40 or so more to go.
