In light of the Liberal disaster that was Outremont there is much speculation about the future leadership of Stephane Dion. In my previous post I noted an interesting question by a self identified lifelong Liberal. How soon could there be another leadership convention?
This morning commentor Blue Liberal left this on the thread:
I tend to agree with Blue and noted earlier that the questions all seemed to be planned. This got me thinking some more about Garth's townhall in Calgary and something odd I noted about the cameraman taping the event.
In my original post I describe how the picture of my cameraman Chris that appears on Garth's blog could only have come from the tape that the pro was shooting. In the same post Garth identifies the cameraman as being from CBC TV.
Then the crowd shouted the guy down. And that was it. The two sat and grumbled for a while. Shot more videotape. But when a CBC television cameraman started mousing around their corner of the room, the ops fled.
Odd I thought. Then I realized that early on in Garth's show he can be heard asking the cameraman (who was just out of the frame of our video) "Your getting this right?" Around the same time the cameraman moves around the room and mounts the stage to shoot from Garth's perspective. Another oddity for a newsman, No?
I figured this might become pertinent later and ask Chris to get a close-up of the camera. Clearly there are no identifying logos that one might expect.
Once again don't take my word for it. Garth Turner Unedited or Your getting this right?
So, was this a newsman shooting news video or a hired gun shooting tape for some future purpose?
Given last nights by election results I wonder.
And finally check out my previous post. The answer Garth gives in defense of Dion could be construed as somewhat "lefthanded".
