Rebel reporters Shelia Gunn-Reid and Keean Bexte were physically and verbally assaulted by protesters at the United Conservative’s Party convention on Saturday.

Police said 600 people with signs and a few AUPE flags gathered at the Westin Calgary Airport to protest job cuts planned by the Jason Kenney government that would see more than 6,400 people lose their jobs.  

Gunn-Reid and Bexte said they approached the group after NDP Edmonton-Glenora MLA Sarah Hoffman had given a speech.

“We were handing out copies of (Stop Notley booklet) – trying to teach them about freedom and six credit downgrades,” said Gunn-Reid.

oh brother

Funny how the corporate and government media rallies around a “journalist” that is heckled with FHRITP while she’s doing some kind of useless puff piece on a public sidewalk.

But when a real journalist with a so-called “right-wing” organisation is physically attacked, the response is quite muted. In fact, some have actually accused the journalists of setting up these scenarios to get publicity.

Good thing the courts don’t agree as REBEL media is now suing these attackers and winning settlements.

I am glad that media organisations such as REBEL and True North exist, as they break more real news story than all the so-called “mainstream” organisations combined.

I live for the day when openly marxist organisations like the Toronto Star go out of business and their opulent headquarters are turned into affordable housing.

Unfortunately, the government is subsidising these outlets with taxpayer dollars, thus prolonging the inevitable.

Another case of leftist thugs doing what leftist thugs do best, especially when they accuse others of being what the thugs are themselves.
