"Incredibly" - Liberal hack Jim Bradley again protected from scrutiny by friendly media

It's funny how Postmedia's Liberal-lovin'-rag known as the St. Catharines Standard can write a blustery editorial, such as the one by Peter Epp on Oct.7, 2015 and not mention the word "Liberal" even once. The issue was that a private firm, Carillon, was fined for not properly maintaining the QEW highway.
Epp wrote:
"Incredibly, the province switched to something called a performance-based contract in 2009, allowing contractors to decide how to meet those maintenance standards, which the Progressive Conservatives contend have been lowered."
Yet, which party lowered those standards?
Epp makes a point of NOT pointing out that it was the Liberal government!
Can't confuse the sheeple with facts such as this! Doing so would clash with Boyle's Law of Liberal Blamelessness; it would be harshly incompatible with the over-riding meme prevalent at the St.Catharines Standard Bradley Bootlicker: that Liberals can do no wrong... and if they do wrong, well then, it must be kept quiet and swept under the rug.
So: who was Ontario's Liberal Transportation Minister in 2009?
Yep: it was none other than St.Catharines' own Liberal hack, MPP Jim Bradley!
"Incredibly", Good Ol' Jim Bradley WAS NOT even mentioned in Epp's editorial!
Amazing, isn't it?!
Why was there no interview with, no statement from, the Liberal hack whose grubby hands were all over that deal in 2009?
Why wasn't the St. Catharines Standard pursuing their local Liberal buddy Jim Bradley for answers?!
Why wasn't the St.Catharines Standard asking the MPP in their own city - the former Liberal Transportation Minister in 2009 - all about his lowered standards, and the subsequent repercussions today, in 2015?
Did the St.Catharines Standard EVEN BOTHER to contact Bradley - the Liberal MPP from their own city - regarding this issue?!
Incredibly, the Standard's standard procedure has not changed: carefully caress Jim Bradley's hackneyed Liberalism; delicately downplay and deflect any controversy, and protect Liberal Saint Jim Bradley's butt from any criticism - even though he was directly involved in the very subject at issue in the editorial!!
It takes skill to write an editorial where the main culprit {the Liberal MPP in your own city} somehow isn't mentioned and vanishes into a convenient Cone of Silence.
It is obvious that for years, the St. Catharines Standard has been peddling its own brand of what in the 2016 U.S. presidential election finally became widely recognized as FAKE NEWS - media manipulation and bias, like CNN's spectacle of sewer-rat phony 'journalism' which was just shameless propaganda.
With their penchant for protecting their Liberal pal Jim Bradley from any serious scrutiny, the St. Catharines Standard was already well on that similar kind of road for years, kissing Liberal MPP Jim Bradley's ass for decades.
It should come as no surprise that the Jim Bradley-loving leftist St. Catharines Standard would be eventually acquired by the scumbag Tor Star conglomerate: this indeed did happen, as reported Nov.27, 2017 by the CBC.
The cabal of Niagara's leftist rags, which were embarrassing PostMedia outlets, are now to become embarrassing propaganda outlets for the Toronto Star's brand of biased Atkinsonian socialism.

"..For their part, Torstar got these newspapers:
  • Barrie Examiner.
  • Bradford Times.
  • Collingwood Enterprise Bulletin.
  • Fort Erie Times.
  • Innisfil Examiner.
  • Inport News (Port Colborne).
  • Niagara Advance.
  • Niagara Falls Review.
  • Northumberland Today.
  • Orillia Packet and Times.
  • Pelham News.
  • Peterborough Examiner.
  • St. Catharines Standard.
  • Thorold Niagara News.
  • Welland Tribune.
  • Stratford City Gazette.
  • West Carleton Review.
In addition to the smaller community papers, Torstar also got two new free commuter newspapers in major cities, 24 Hours Toronto and 24 Hours Vancouver. 
As is the case with Postmedia, most of Torstar's new properties are to be shut down, including those two.
Only four papers — St. Catharines Standard, Niagara Falls Review, Welland Tribune and Peterborough Examiner — will continue to operate. 
The rest will all be closed in a move that Torstar says it expects will results in cost saving synergies of between $5 and $7 million. The Torstar closures, which are effective immediately, will affect 46 full-time and part-time employees..."

It is easy to see what the gradual next step will be here in Niagara: that the 3 city papers will be merged into one regional Niagara Star, and they will use the exact same "cost-savings" rhetoric which they are using now, to justify the next round of  attrition/amalgamation/consolidation.
For years, the St.Catharines Standard, Niagara Falls Review and the Welland Tribune have been essentially the same newspaper, anyways, publishing basically the same common news feeds; the real difference being in how much local advertising was being sent out in each paper.
It's not hard to see, given some tweaking on the advertising end and on the"local news" end, that a merger is the next goal.
It's also VERY interesting to see the deceptive leftist spin which Global News put on this media swap - Global's Nov. 27, 2017 headline read:
    "Postmedia shuts down community newspapers after swap with Torstar" -
- as if the leftists at TorStar weren't doing the EXACT SAME THING!!!
And who wrote this phony Global headline? Who knows! Who wrote the story? Who knows - it's just an anonymous  CP feed!!! Heck, maybe a computer bot automatically wrote it!
But interestingly, it is relevant to understand that TorStar has a part ownership of  CP (Canadian Press), so how surprising can it be to see that a CP story is spiked with a biased accompanying headline?!?
THAT'S how MSM propaganda works!!!
The fact that TorStar is ALSO closing newspapers WAS PURPOSEFULLY and DECEPTIVELY eliminated from Global's fake news-worthy headline!! Instead, ONLY PostMedia was scapegoated as the newspaper-closing villains!!

Why even have a Global if they are just advertising accumulators for disseminating CP and AP feeds?!
