Who do they REALLY speak for?

I knew we were going to face this sooner or later. My beef with the MSM nowadays always revolves around the fact they never really report the full storey to give viewers/readers a detailed description of the issues facing us today.

Be it Foreign relations, the economy, domestic issues, whatever it is, lazy journalism is always prevalent. Well with the Child Care debate is no different.

Today, as a bunch short-haired angry lesbians (who seem to be suffering from a serious case of penis-envy btw) called a press conference to try to frame the whole Child Care debate into a Women's issue. (Fathers be dammed).

Here we go:

They say Harper's pledge to replace those agreements with direct payments to parents of $1,200 a year for every child under six just doesn't cut it.

"While families welcome financial support, it is not child care," Monica Lysack, of the Canadian Child Care Advocacy Association, told a news conference in Ottawa Wednesday.


FACT: The CCAA which is federally funded thanks to the years of Liberal government, never ever cites any of the exhaustive studies into the Quebec Daycare model (which is what this program is modeled after) that shows time and time again that only a small minority of working women use the institutionalized model, and worse its a program that benefited women who didn't need help at all. Already raising the question of whether or Ms. Lysack speaks for the majority of Canadian women.

Barbara Byers, executive vice-president of the Canadian Labour Congress, told reporters that "for working women, child care is all about equality."


FACT #1: While Byers does speak about "equality" she never elaborates on just how the model which she advocates doesn't help working parents who don't have a 9 to 5 working schedule, women who choose alterative models of child care (nannies, relatives etc...) or those who decide to decrease their working hours to remain home with their newborns. Raising the question once again: Does she really speak for all women/parents?

FACT#2: The media LOVES to get quotes from Labor Unions on this issue. But NEVER have they mentioned how the Liberal model would end up financially benefiting them. The daycare workers would all be unionized, and just like the Mob structure they kick part of their pay to their Union masters for "protection". Of all the articles I've read who quote Union officials, I've never seen this conflict of interest being raised.

Yeah...that's detailed reporting allright.
