This thread is a prime example of WHY ppl are so angry, @CBCKatie. Like your news coverage, you're misrepresenting what's going on here, claiming victim-hood, insinuating that this is about you being a woman, or your body, knowing full well, that's NOT what this is about.
This is about the frustration that Cdns feel when they see their PM go for days without being asked a single question about his multitude of scandals, while the candidate running against him gets pounded relentlessly for the most RIDICULOUS NONSENSE...
This is about endless tweets, headlines and news stories deliberately designed to malign, demonize and defame one candidate, and all of his supporters (You're doing this right now with this tweet thread), while knowing that you are paid with OUR TAX DOLLARS, to defame us.
This is about one candidate (Scheer) making a statement, and the following headline (Yours) smears him as accepting of racism and hate, while another candidate (Singh), who made virtually the exact same statement, gets the opposite treatment.
Most importantly, this wasn't about you being a woman, or your body shape or size. It was about a video that went viral displaying one particular candidate, buttering up a reporter from your network, passive aggressively reminding him to toe the line, with a tray of poutine.
This is about watching that reporter, @CochraneCBC, on video, laugh about it as though such behavior is an everyday event, rather than following network policy, which is to refuse inappropriate gifts from those they're covering.
Why did you not show that video @CBCKatie?
Now I'm going to do what you do, but unlike you, I'm going to be honest about it.
I'm going to speculate....
I think you didn't post that video because you hoped ppl that hadn't seen it would read your thread and assume these comments were about your body or being female.
I think you wanted to paint the absolute worst possible picture you could of the kind of ppl that support the one candidate that you & your network, so obviously despise. So you displayed these comments, completely absent any context, and portrayed yourself as a victim.
In fairness, it's not right to hold you responsible for the questions not asked of Trudeau this week, when you were assigned to cover Scheer, and were not there. It IS however right to hold you responsible for not keeping your own clear & very obvious bias in check.
And hold you responsible WE WILL, because the fact is, Trudeau is not your boss. WE ARE.
We don't pay you in winks, selfies or poutine. We pay you in taxpayer dollars, out of our own hard earned income, to INFORM us, not promote your preferred candidate, while SMEARING CDNS.
Some may be fooled by your latest false narrative and ploy for attention and sympathy. As a woman, I'm sickened by the play of female weakness. All for show.
It's just another in a long line of smear jobs, shaped straight from the talking points of Gerry Butts.
12/ And now, for the context Katie chose to selectively omit... the video, that had NOTHING to do with bodyshaming or misogyny, just a PM reminding his favored news network to toe the line, and the reporter who submissively rolled over for a belly rub:
To those idiots actually body shaming and going after Katie b/c she's a woman, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Stop making normal good people that just want balanced news, look like a-holes. We get enough of that from Trudeau & CBC w/o you validating their BS.
